Government wants to purchase equipment for the army in Polish companies
Prime Minister Beata Szydło, who visited aviation works in Mielec and Świdnik on Monday, reiterated in Łódź on Tuesday that the government wanted to purchase equipment for the army in Polish companies.
We want the equipment for the Polish army to be manufactured in Poland, by Polish workers. To give the companies operating in Poland the possibility to provide equipment for the Polish army, she said. She added that this was not only
the guarantee of Poland’s security, but also a part of the government strategy. She also said that
foreign investors were invited, but should remember that conditions must be favourable for both parties. The Prime Minister ensured that in the case of purchases for the army, the primary goal of
the government was to protect national interests.
