Looking at how the Polish economy has been evolving, we can hope that in several years’ time our economic growth will be on par with the countries of Western Europe, said the head of the government as he received the award during the Man of the Year of the Economic Forum Award Gala.

In an earlier meeting with entrepreneurs the Prime Minister emphasized that Poland is a state with great prospects for development and economic growth. He went on to add that the level of investments is the best measure of a country’s potential for attracting businesses, and according to statistics this area grew by 38%.

This is the 29th edition of the Forum, which became one of Poland’s largest economic events. This year’s motto is “Europe of Tomorrow. 'Strong' Meaning What?”. The Forum brings together politicians, representatives of non-governmental organisations and entrepreneurs to discuss directions in which to take the economies of Poland and Europe.

The head of the government recalled that our foreign debt fell below 30%. At the same time, last year’s debt to GDP fell below 49%, and this year it is likely to fall below 47% in relation to GDP.

We owe the fact that Poland is experiencing a period of phenomenal economic growth to the government’s tightening of the tax system, concluded the Prime Minister. He also thanked the entrepreneurs for all their efforts, achievements and successes, both domestic and international.
