The purpose of this paper is to determine the changes in bilateral trade in agricultural products between China and Poland and to assess the comparative advantages of the major agricultural product groups in 2010-2017. The paper is based on data retrieved from the UN Comtrade database. The analysis covers the value and commodity structure of agricultural trade between China and Poland. The level of comparative advantages of the main product groups (XRCA, MRCA, RTA), coverage ratio (CR), and intra-industry trade index (IIT) was also shown. It turns out that the bilateral trade in agricultural products between China and Poland increased significantly between 2010 and 2017 due to “Go China” project and 16+1 platform China-Poland. The main feature of trade relations between China and Poland is substantial trade asymmetry.
