Morawiecki was speaking on Tuesday at the Tallinn Digital Summit, an annual high-level event hosted by the prime minister of Estonia for political leaders, policy innovators, entrepreneurs, and the tech community to highlight the importance of digital transformation.

This year’s summit is dedicated to what the organizers called “trusted connectivity.”

“The key challenge facing democratic countries in the 21st century is how to develop connectivity through the global infrastructure on which our lives depend. This does not only mean the ways we move people, goods, produce and transfer energy, but also the ways we create, transmit, store, use, and protect data,” the summit’s organizers said on their website.

“Poland supports every kind of technological, scientific and regulatory cooperation between like-minded countries,” Morawiecki told the online conference.

"I believe that this can greatly reduce the existing differences in the level of development, and it can be such a form of trusted connectivity," he added.

The Polish-led Three Seas Initiative aims to boost infrastructure, energy and business ties among 12 countries between the Black, Baltic and Adriatic Seas.

The initiative brings together Poland, Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.
