The Prime Minister referred to the current economic development of the Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodeship which, as he stated, until recently was characterised by the highest unemployment in Poland. The centres in Warmia and Mazury – Olsztyn, Elbląg, Węgorzewo and Braniewo – did not experience economic growth as they should have done due to the centralised economic model, where funds were to a large extent directed to the most developed cities, such as Warsaw, Kraków, Poznań and Tricity said the Prime Minister. He added that the government decided on economic changes which are to serve such areas as the Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodeship in the long run.

The Vistula Spit dug-through

We are breaking down the various mechanisms of impossibility, incompatibility. For how many years have you been hearing here in your voivodeship that it is impossible, that there is no sense, that there is no money for the dug-through of the Vistula Spit? said the Prime Minister, referring to the design and execution of the Vistula Spit dug-through. As he said, this investment will be an opportunity for the development of Elbląg and the northern part of the Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodeship. He declared that nearly one billion zlotys had been allocated from the central budget for the Vistula Spit dug-through.

I believe that the development of industry, including shipbuilding, there on the coast near Elbląg will be much more possible, precisely because we will dig the Vistula Spit added the Prime Minister.

Special economic zone

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki pointed out that the government decided on economic changes which will help regions such as the Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodeship to develop.

Since 1 July this year, a special economic zone has been established which will allow investors to invest in an easier and more motivated way based on tax reliefs and subsidies for jobs said the Prime Minister. He noted that the special economic zone will make the ability to attract new investors depend to a large extent on the efficiency and effectiveness of mayors and heads of gminas, and certainly to a greater extent than hitherto.

Rebuilding the railway line

During the meeting with the inhabitants of Olsztyn, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced electrification of the “Korsze-Ełk” railway line, i.e. from the north-east to the eastern part of the voivodeship. As he noted, this will allow “the train journey on this route to be speeded up by more than half an hour”.

Also in the central part of the voivodeship – Olsztyn, Mrągowo, Ełk – railway investments will certainly be made, on those railway routes which are neglected added the Prime Minister.

The Polish-Israeli declaration

It is incredible that for 25 years of a free Poland, since 1989, so much has been done to force foreign sins into our consciences that we can be held responsible for the greatest crimes in the history of humanity said the Prime Minister. According to the Prime Minister, the Polish-Israeli declaration is a milestone in rebuilding Poland's memory, reputation and security.

Judicial reform

The Prime Minister declared that he would continue the reform of the justice system because, as he said, it is enshrined in the Treaties, so it is necessary to stick to the Treaties. He added that following the democratic choice three years ago, states have the right to reform.

We are one of the most experienced countries in building democracy and nobody has to teach us what democracy is, because we know it very well said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
