Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki: Economy and society are one

We look at development in such a way that employees may earn well in modern enterprises, because the economy and society are one. We care about Polish capital, Polish entrepreneurs, Polish companies said the Prime Minister during a meeting with entrepreneurs and employees in Dębierzyce in the Wielkopolskie Voivodeship.

Addressing the participants of the meeting, the head of the government said that Polish entrepreneurs are becoming more and more creative and that we owe the current economic growth to them. Referring to examples of the most mature economies whose domain is state cooperation with enterprises, he presented the planned and already implemented government actions aimed at further economic development of Poland.

The Business Constitution

We want the mentality of officials to gradually change said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, discussing proposals for changes included in the Business Constitution, a package of laws whose aim is to reform and simplify the regulations governing business operations. The main issues are, among other things, the entrepreneur's relations with offices and dealing with official matters, setting up a company or business-related duties.

The Business Constitution means more opportunities for entrepreneurs to run businesses said the Prime Minister.

CIT and ZUS tax

In addition, the head of the government mentioned lowering taxes. From 1 January 2019, we will reduce CIT for entrepreneurs from 15% to 9%. This is one of the lowest taxes in Europe emphasised the Prime Minister.

Discussing the next changes, he also mentioned the so-called Small ZUS, i.e. contribution proportional to the turnover. From 1 January 2019, persons conducting sole proprietorship, whose average monthly income does not exceed 2.5 times the minimum wage, will be able to pay reduced social security contributions, proportional to the income.

In this way, we may possibly take as many as hundreds, and certainly dozens of micro-entrepreneurs out of the gray zone said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. He added that this will put more money in the pockets of entrepreneurs, that can be spent on investments.


During the meeting, the Prime Minister noted that economic development is also the development of infrastructure, which is why, thanks to the sealing of the tax system, we open the largest fund for the construction of local roads.

Concluding the speech, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki emphasised that economic patriotism, cooperation between entrepreneurs and local government authorities is the key to the success of the Polish economy.
