An important investment for region and Poland

S-1 is under construction – this is the future of our region and an opportunity for development – stressed Prime Minister Beata Szydło. The head of the Government mentioned that the efforts to construct the expressway has already begun 20 years ago. She said that we had to wait for 20 years for this decision to be taken. The investment will improve the communication in the region. The Prime Minister indicated that the determination of the course of the road was not easy, due to the mining areas and the Natura 2000. The head of the Government thanked local governments for a proactive stance and consensus in the implementation of this investment.  

Like in other parts of Poland we will pursue important road and rail investments and other infrastructure plans. We will implement the programme to support entrepreneurs and rebuild industry and production as well as to create new jobs – said the head of the Government.

At the same time Beata Szydło indicated that she wanted Poland to grow evenly. In her opinion, it was important to enable everyone to pursue their ambitions in places they live. The Prime Minister noted that it was very important to see the potential of the individual parts of Poland.

During the meeting with parliamentarians and local governments from Podbeskidzie, Cieszyn Silesia and Ziemia Żywiecka the Minister of Infrastructure and Construction signed an order for the construction of S-1 road on sections: Podwarpie–Dąbrowa Górnicza, Kosztowy–Bielsko-Biała and bypass for Węgierska Górka.

The Government initiates a variety of investment projects

Today, many very important economic matters initiated by the government are pursued. At this point, the Deputy Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki is signing a significant contract that will give new jobs for our country. The new investor will show up, it is an important investment that will be implemented in Lower Silesia – informed Beata Szydło. Deputy Prime Minister Morawiecki announced that GE Aviation and Lufthansa Technik will jointly construct service centre for aircraft engines in Środa Śląska. The value of investment will amount to PLN 1 billion and will contribute to the creation of over 500 new jobs. The construction of centre will begin in March 2017.

As the Prime Minister emphasised, the Minister Błaszczak will also open another police station in small town, which has been shut down by the previous Government. In the campaign we promised the Poles that we will deal with matters of ordinary people. We will realise their expectations and so far we are keeping our promises. We bring back the Polish state in those regions and towns where it was phased out for 8 years by Civil Platform (PO) and the Polish Peasants’ Party (PSL) – said Prime Minister Beata Szydło. As she declared, her Cabinet will continue the implementation of “The Responsible Development Plan”.

Development and economy – they are our priority

Poland is growing, we are optimistic about the future – said the Prime Minister, mentioning the positive assessments of credit rating agencies and decrease in unemployment. We are on the right track to make the development of Poland faster and more dynamic. Thanks to this we will be able to meet these assumptions, which are expected by Polish citizens – she added.

The Prime Minister reminded the summary of the first year of her Government, when she mentioned that social programmes were the priority during the first 12 months. She said that now is the time for the next step. Development and economy are the most important – stressed the head of the Government.
