The III Polish Economic Congress, held on January 27th, is a significant step towards freeing Polish entrepreneurs from the binds of bureaucratism. The Congress, under the honorary patronage of President of Poland Andrzej Duda, was attended by current and former government officials, leading economists and businessmen. The all agreed that the problem of bureaucratism highlighted by Employers of Poland has reached a monstrous scope.
– I agree with you that Polish economy can grow much faster. For that to happen, bureaucratic obstacles which hamper Polish business – said President Andrzej Duda in his message aired at the Congress. – I declare that your noble efforts to stop bureaucratism have my full understanding and support – he added.
Andrzej Malinowski presented a compelling picture of the situation of entrepreneurs obliged to keep up to date with all changes in the law. – 28 000! Regulations prepared in 2015 alone take up this many pages! This amounts to one sixth of the entire 2004 edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica – said the President of Employers of Poland. He also emphasized that the objective of the Congress was not only to discuss entrepreneurs’ problems, but also to find solutions. One of the tangible results of the event will be a “white book” with recommendations for restricting bureaucracy which will be presented to decision makers.

We should endeavor to find the best common denominator for the good of our economy and our future – summarized Minister Morawiecki.
