The head of Polish government pointed out that at a time of economic slowdown, the Polish economy is rapidly developing. I would like for this source of success to be even more based on high technology, which will create new jobs in Poland said Mateusz Morawiecki.

The Prime Minister stressed that meetings in Davos are significant from the perspective of the Polish economy. He said that according to the OECD, Poland has the fastest economic growth among all thirty-six countries, which means that investments in Poland are worthwhile in the long term. We can boast a well-educated and talented labour force he said, adding that this is what the companies that are already investing in Poland very often emphasise.

Mateusz Morawiecki will also participate in a debate held by the Polish Economic Institute. The debate will tackle issues related to, among other things, tax policy and combating tax evasion. During the debate, the head of Polish government will present Polish suggestions on international cooperation in order to develop an effective regulatory system in this regard.

This year marks the 50th World Economic Forum, with its theme being Stakeholders for a Cohesive and Sustainable World. Almost 3,000 people from 117 countries are expected to participate, including 53 heads of state and government.
