Lublin Voivodeship mainly depends on agriculture and food processing, featured by the well-developed industry of fruit growing especially strawberry and cherry, as well as sugar, tobacco and grain in the top. Another dependent revenue comes from agricultural tourism.

Blending different cultures, religions and beliefs, it is usually called a “melting pot” of cultures and religions. Germans built Lublin Voivodeship into a concentration camp for Jews. Today, a memorial on the concentration camp site welcomes visitors from all over the world.

In September 2008, Lublin Voivodeship and Henan officially established a sister-province relationship.

Cooperation Intention

The cooperation between Henan and Lublin Voivodeship is based on friendship and mutual trust with frequent exchange visits between the two governments. The bilateral cooperation is highly complementary in economy and enjoys huge potential and broad prospect. With obvious location advantages and friendly investment environment, Lublin Voivodeship is rich in agriculture, forestry and coal. In particular, Lublin Voivodeship is witnessing a rapid economic development, willing to attract foreign businesses and investment, and has provided the land information of the development zones in Lublin Voivodeship and Eastern Poland to Henan, which is a gateway for Henan’s enterprises to access to EU markets.
