North-Eastern Poland has a large potential for development. The government places emphasis on infrastructural projects in this region, said Prime Minister Beata Szydło during Thursday conference at the Chancellery of the Prime Minister. EP Committee on Transport and Tourism has approved a report by Tomasz Poręba, a MEP from Law and Justice, on the development of transport infrastructure in Central and Eastern Europe. Thus, the European Union gave a green light to Via Carpatia, an international expressway that runs from Lithuania through Poland to Greece along the eastern border of the EU.

Investments in North-Eastern Poland

Prime Minister Beata Szydło stressed that the government placed emphasis on infrastructural projects in North-Eastern Poland also for strategic and security reasons. At the same time she informed that the European Parliament approved the report by MEP Tomasz Poręba on the transport infrastructure in Central and Eastern Europe. “This is the first comprehensive document devoted entirely to the development of infrastructure in this region in the history of the EP. It is very important for Poland’s development. In the coming years we will turn this information into specific infrastructural projects. Thus North-Eastern Poland and our entire homeland will develop dynamically, stressed the head of the government.

Red and white Law and Justice team for the development of Poland

The Prime Minister congratulated Tomasz Poręba for his success and approval of his report by the EP. As she said, Law and Justice MEPs prove that you can work for Poland effectively in the EP and adopt projects that are strategic for our country. All the actions of the red and white team, i.e. the Law and Justice government, our national team at the European Parliament, our club, our parliamentary background in Poland, are focused on the implementation of the programme we undertook. We are on the side of ordinary citizens, we care for the interests of Polish people so they can live with dignity and think about stabilisation and development, summed up the Prime Minister.

Apart from Beata Szydło, the press conference at the Chancellery of the Prime Minister was also attended by the Minister of Infrastructure and Construction Andrzej Adamczyk and Law and Justice MEP Tomasz Poręba.

Via Carpatia

Via Carpatia is a planned international route that is to run from Klaipėda and Kaunas in Lithuania through Białystok, Lublin, Rzeszów and Slovak Košice to Debrecen in Hungary, and then to Romania, Bulgaria and Greece. Via Carpatia is one of the most strategic investments for the Polish government. The road will speed up the economic development of North-Eastern Poland. Many companies will emerge along the route, investments will be launched and new jobs will be created. In addition it will enhance the security of our country.
