New transport attaché appointed to Poland

Lithuania has appointed a new transport attaché, Diplomat Liliana Jaroslavska, to Poland. She will take office from 6 March.

The most important goals set for the new Transport Attaché in Poland include the strengthening of cooperation with Poland and the development of relations between the two countries’ transport, industrial and other business representatives and organisations, focusing on the smooth implementation and development of joint strategic transport projects.

“Lithuania and Poland are in strategic partnership. We closely cooperate in key areas, such as transport and logistics as well as economic, military mobility and other issues. I hope that the new Transport Attaché will continue striving even further, contributing to stronger relations with neighbouring Poland in the transport sphere“, says Minister of Transport, Marius Skuodis.

Ms Jaroslavska has a long-standing experience in diplomatic work at the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The new Transport Attaché has worked at the Lithuanian Embassies in Poland and Belgium, and the Permanent Representation of Lithuania to the European Union for about eight years. She has a Master’s degree in international relations from Warsaw University.

Ms Jaroslavska will replace Stanislav Vidtmann, the former Transport Attaché of Lithuania in Poland, whose term expired on 7 July last year and who has continued work at the Ministry of Transport and Communications since then.

At present, the Ministry has one Transport Attaché in Kazakhstan and another three Transport Attachés (for Aviation, Maritime relations, Telecommunications and Postal services) in Brussels. The Ministry of Transport and Communications has also proposed to the Government to set up a new transport attaché post for Ukraine in the near future.
