We focus on repurchasing the Polish ownership and on re-polonization. We did what we promised said the Head of Government concluding the negotiations for repurchasing Polskie Koleje Linowe. He added: I want to express my great joy and gratitude to all those, who fought to have Polskie Koleje Linowe, which were sold by our predecessors in 2013, back into Polish ownership.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki highlighted that predecessors during 8 years sold Polish ownership for about PLN 50–60 billions. He pointed out that the current Government is not selling Polish ownership, because it is effectively fighting with VAT fraud organised crime groups and with those who robbed Polish state. Today, we can expand this accumulated ownership and return it to people as this is our goal.

Head of Government emphasised that many countries, such as Austria, Germany, France or Switzerland hold their symbolic, most valuable infrastructure investments in their hands. He added that this wonderful, Polish investment containing a lot of history, which is related to many memories of Polish people is a national diamond for our country.

Emphasising this great legacy of Polishness I would like to thank all people who contributed to this said Head of Polish Government and thanked inter alia Polish Development Fund for successful business negotiations and all those who claimed Polish ownership and asked for our national goods not to be sold.
