Congratulations are due to many people who made sure that the Polish army is equipped with equipment produced in Poland. That Polish armaments manufacturers form the basis for the production and equipping of the Polish army. This is the assumption which is in line with the Law and Justice’s programme. This is the direction we have chosen a couple of years ago, Beata Szydło stated.

The head of government thanked for the determination of Minister Antoni Macierewicz and all those who contributed to the notification of the contract, according to which over PLN 4.5 billion will be invested in production at Huta Stalowa Wola. The Minister assured me that the production at Stalowa Wola is guaranteed for 8 years. This is very good news both for the workers of the ironworks and for the whole town, Beata Szydło continued.

It is an extremely important moment but it needs to be underlined that we want to implement more such projects in the next years. I would like to stress that the Law and Justice’s programme clearly states that the priority for the government is economic development based on the reconstruction of industry, Polish production as well as linking all these branches in such a way, that also the army industry is the driver of the Polish economy. This plan has been and will be consistently implemented, Prime Minister Szydło assured.
