Housing Plus Programme

Housing Plus will be a comprehensive programme, under which we want to have at least tens of thousands of apartments under construction in the next twelve months - said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. He added that it is a very difficult and complex programme which consists of three pillars.

The Prime Minister explained that the first pillar is reliefs which are suppose to cause that more housing will be constructed. The second are subsidies for rents. According to the head of the government, the third pillar is special legislation, ease in transformations so that investors do not actually have to wait two, three, four years for permits, but two, three, four, five months.

Poland as one large economic zone

During his speech, the Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki emphasized that wages had been raising too slowly during the last 30 years. He added that the government raised the minimum wage, more than our predecessors did, and also raised the hourly rates.

The head of the government highlighted the fact that the government is undertaking many activities aimed at creating new jobs, pointing at the law on special economic zones adopted two weeks ago. This law is a breakthrough because it creates Poland as a one large special economic zone and will allow all local government officials to obtain maximum tax benefits and support for job creation from the central budget – explained the Prime Minister.

Development of road infrastructure

We do not want Poland to be the way it was. We want Poland to be a country as evenly developing as possible - said Mateusz Morawiecki. He noted that when the ruling camp was taking the power, in Lublin Voivodeship there were 80 km of expressways, now we are building over 300 km, we are investing. The Prime Minister also announced that in autumn a fund for the construction of local roads and bridges will be created which will allow financing road investments.

Our predecessors regressed Poland, and our government wants to develop Poland - stressed the head of government. He reminded that liquidated police stations, post offices, and railway lines in small towns are now being reconstructed.

Agriculture

I would like farmers to have as much freedom as possible to make the regulations on agricultural retail trade more liberal - said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki regarding the adopted act on agricultural retail trade.

I would like farmers to have as much freedom as possible. We will attempt to find such mechanisms so that farmers in as many places as possible can sell their wonderful products without any obstacles - said the head of the government. In his opinion, we must praise what is good, tasty and what is Polish.

Health service

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki also pointed out that in autumn last year, due to the sealing of the tax system, ten-year arrears of payments for medical services of the previous government were paid. We want to allocate 6% of the GDP for health service and till 2024 we will aim to go in this direction. We already spend PLN 12 billion more on health service than our predecessors – emphasized the head of government. He also informed that the emergency medical services would be nationalized in a few months.

Poland for everyone

We are a government for all the Poles, also for those who do not yet share our vision of social and economic development, and which is clearly working - said the Prime Minister. As he said, all these great expenses are for the whole society, because the government does not want to divide Poles.
