Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki: Farmers are the salt of the earth

I’m very happy that Polish agriculture is being modernised. Farmers are the salt of the earth. I, however, would like to sweeten this salt with higher profits and improved margins, for you to be able to sell your products for the best prices, said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki when addressing farmers during his visit to a farm in Podlasie.

It is a real challenge to speak about the problems faced by Polish agriculture

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that he frequently discusses the problems faced by Polish rural areas with the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Krzysztof Jurgiel. It is a real challenge to speak about the problems faced by Polish agriculture; about the fact that we cannot leave farmers on their own and we cannot allow for them to be in a worse position than our competitors in the West, said the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister thanked minister Krzysztof Jurgiel for his work, emphasising that he has rendered a great service to the Polish agriculture.

Poland as the primary agri-food production power

The Prime Minister stated that Poland is becoming the primary agri-food production power. We ranked fourth in milk production in the European Union. Agri-food production is of key importance, and can also be very profitable, pointed out the Prime Minister. He added that we are standing on the podium in some areas – Poland ranks third in the production of rapeseed oil in the EU. I believe achieving such position is also possible in the case of milk production, the Prime Minister stressed.

Rural areas are the home of Polish patriotism

Pope John Paul II always made this beautiful gesture whenever he arrived in Poland – he kissed the Polish soil,” said the Prime Minister. “As this soil does not only bear fruit and provides a living, but is also the soil of our ancestors, to which we owe respect and protection, said the Prime Minister. He also added that he will defend the interests of Polish farmers in the European Union.

The Prime Minister thanked the farmers for saving the value of Polish patriotism. Today, patriotism is also manifested in being able to govern in Polish rural areas in the best way possible. Our government will take good care of that. Thank you for all that you’ve been doing and for the fact that we are fighting for a better Poland together, emphasised Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
