The “Polish Compass” awards are given to individuals and institutions that contributed to the development of the Polish economy in a special way.

We will be strong and subjective with a strong economy

11 months of the government behind us. We have taken many difficult decisions, but I know it was a time fairly and well worked. This is just the beginning, said Prime Minister Beata Szydło during the gala. The head of the government said she wanted to combine economic and social affairs. We want the economy to build the possibility of achieving ambitious social goals, declared the head of government. We hope to make a huge civilisation leap, she said, adding that it was worth to do it for Poland and Poles.

We want to level the very unfair division of paying levies in Poland

During the gala, Prime Minister Beata Szydło referred to a single tax which, she claimed, would promote entrepreneurs. If we do not succeed in working out such a method, if we do not manage to create such a system, we will certainly not put it into practice. Today, we are determined for the single tax to be a guarantee for entrepreneurs that they will have preferences in the conduct of their business,” she said. “We want to build the economy on Polish entrepreneurs, she stressed.

“Polski Kompas 2016” yearbook

The gala at which the “Polish Compass” awards are given adds splendour to the issue of a yearbook (of the same title) documenting the economic life of Poland. In 2015, the editors of the oldest economic magazine in Poland, “Gazeta Bankowa,” decided to return to their pre-war traditions and reactivate the publication. The current version of the book is analytical and covers, inter alia, the trends presented by the Programme Council and journalists of “Gazeta Bankowa,” authorities in various fields of economic life, financial analysts, economists and people from the world of Polish business.
