The financing system for the Plan should highlight the role of the capital market and the stock exchange – such a remark was accepted as justified by Viceminister of Development Jerzy Kwieciński at a seminar organized by Employers of Poland.
The seminar gathered man academics, experts and specialists in the field of investment finds, as well as the financial and the capital market, representing a.o.: the Pension Fund Chamber (IGTE), the Chamber of Fund and Asset Management. Insurance companies and financial institutions. It was also attended by Jerzy Kwieciński, Viceminister of Development, who came to respond to remarks and propositions.
Experts pointed a.o. to the lack of references to the capital market in the Plan, which Viceminister Kwieciński considered a justified objection. – We will emphasize the role of the stock market. I accept this objection – he said, while stressing that private investors do not invest much on the stock market. – Of course, national institutions who invest are important, but the participation of private investors on the stock market is three times too low – he said.
According to Kwieciński, the money for financing the plan could also come from international institutions – although restricting debt, particularly foreign debt, remains a priority. The public-private partnership and “the mobilization of the private sector” could serve as further sources of funding. – We want to stimulate the private sector to improve Poles welfare. Poles have to feel that what we do for the country, we do not only for ourselves, but for them too – said Jerzy Kwieciński.
