The delegation was led by the Polish Premier, Mr. Piotr Jaroszewicz, who, with his wife, laid a special wreath on the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi.

That was the first function of the day and later the Polish delegation went to the Presidential residence.
Here Mr. Jaroszewicz and the other delegates met the Indian President, Mr. V.V. Giri.
It was only a courtesy call...an occasion for brief and friendly conversation before getting down to the real business of the day....
In the south block of the Government Secretariat building they had a meeting with the Indian Prime Minister, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, and a series of conferences with Cabinet Ministers and other officials.
It was later announced that India and Poland had signed a three year trade protocol and an agreement covering extensive economic co-operation.
It's envisaged that trade between India and Poland will be worth the equivalent of 72-million pounds Sterling this year....rising to III-million by nineteen-eighty. Most of the increase will come from new lines of imports and exports. Poland will buy more engineering and consumer goods from India and supply India with more fertilisers, steel products and heavy machinery.
