Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki: Credibility is not established by words, but by actions

We have introduced a new quality to political life, one which is based on diligence, effectiveness and consequence, said the head of the government during today’s visits in Mazowieckie, Świętokrzyskie and Małopolskie voivodeships. During the meetings, the Prime Minister was accompanied by: the Minister of Infrastructure Andrzej Adamczyk, the Minister of Entrepreneurship and Technology Jadwiga Emilewicz, the Minister of Investment and Economic Development Jerzy Kwieciński, the Minister of Finance Teresa Czerwińska and the Minister of Family, Labour and Social Policy Elżbieta Rafalska.

The first item on the visit’s agenda concerned a road in Raszyn which obtained financing from the Self-Government Road Fund in 2017 amounting to PLN 770,000. As the Prime Minister emphasised, the financial resources from this Fund will improve the quality of roads in Poland. He also informed that PLN 6 billion from the Fund will be earmarked for this purpose in 2019.

Another item on the Prime Minister’s visit agenda concerned the so-called Low ZUS contributions. This solution is meant to support the development of small companies. Every small company wishes to grow, and by lightening the burden imposed on them we will contribute to that, said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

Low ZUS contributions are a tremendous benefit for entrepreneurs – a solution which will bring nearly PLN 5.4 billion in savings over 10 years.

Morawiecki’s Five also features the government’s Accessibility + programme whose goals include making public spaces and services more easily accessible to people with disabilities, the elderly and pregnant women. Poland has to be accessible to everybody. This is the fundamental creed spurring our actions, said the Prime Minister during his visit to the Self-help Home in Jedlanka.

The head of the government’s visit in Zagnańsk marks the penultimate point planned as part of summing up the progress of those 300 days, one pertaining to the promise of a 9% CIT. The Prime Minister recalled that the CIT tax was first reduced from 19% to 15% and now from 15% to 9%. The head of the government stressed that his cabinet sees the development of Polish SMEs as crucial. The Prime Minister added that he has faith in Polish entrepreneurs and Polish capital.

Finally, the Prime Minister went to Gołcza, where he paid a visit to a large family. This was in reference to the Good Start programme, which offers families a one-time aid of PLN 300 per each child at school, regardless of income. Families first received this aid in 2018, benefitting 4.4 million students.
