The Polish love Fifth Avenue; or at least that was discussed during President Obama's trip to Europe.  Over the weekend, President Obama met with the Prime Minister of Poland, Donald Tusk, to discuss foreign relations between the two countries, and America's promise to help protect and support the safety of the European country. During the press conference, shopping on Fifth Avenue became a topic of discussion; when Tusk brought up the issue of restricting visas to Polish tourists in America.

Donald Tusk on the issue of shopping in America:
"It is in the interest of the United States to make sure that as many Polish people as possible could get to not just the shops on Fifth Avenue, but all over the United States, in the easiest possible way. Because this is bad business for both parties."

His comments resulted from a question from a press correspondent using Fifth Avenue as an example of the luxury shopping that Polish tourists do while in New York, but as President Obama said during his response, "we very much want you to shop on Fifth Avenue and anywhere else in the United States."
