Deputy Prime Ministers also took part in this conference involving the public: Beata Szydło, Piotr Gliński and Jarosław Gowin.

Mateusz Morawiecki pointed out that the changes introduced by previous governments were not sufficiently adapted to the people’s needs and expectations. We try to effect changes that benefit the ordinary person, the young and the elderly, the hard-working people the Prime Minister emphasized.

As he said, the current economic model is intended to increase the Polish peoples’ earnings, so that they are more on par with the West. This is what being European means to me said Mateusz Morawiecki. Poles want to enjoy the European standard of living and the government will do everything to make it happen he added. According to the head of government, the state is there to provide aid and not shirk from it, to facilitate the development of its into entrepreneurs.

We’ve kicked our economy into high gear said the Prime Minister. The economic growth has been at 5% or higher for the fifth quarter in a row already he said. He added that the current budget deficit and unemployment rate are among the lowest after 1989. This proves the strength of our public finances and the vitality of Polish economy evaluated. The Prime Minister also asserted that the government social benefit programmes, e.g. for the development of rural areas, pensioners or the 500 plus have guaranteed funding from the state budget.

The Prime Minister assessed that governments of the United Right are the most freedom-oriented team of the last 28 years. We give people the right to decide if they want to retire early, send their child to school later, safe in Employee Capital Plans for their pensions stressed Prime Minister. As he explained, freedom is when it is underpinned by financial security. I am glad that we have managed to stop emigration, that young people stay in Poland and return here more often pointed out Mateusz Morawiecki.

Also the opposition was invited to substantive cooperation by the Prime Minister. We are the party which understands the need for stabilisation. We want give it to people said Prime Minister. We do not want political fights to remind tribal fights, we do not want people to be so divided stressed Mateusz Morawiecki.

Answering the audience questions, the Prime Minister said that Polexit scenario is absolutely impossible. The one who rises such topics does harm to Poland assessed Prime Minister. I am convinced that the next 10 years will be the leap of economic development for Poland and we will become even stronger pillar of European Union said Mateusz Morawiecki.
