Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Development Mateusz Morawiecki attended Wednesday’s meeting of the Council of Employers of Poland. Participants asked him about the details of implementing the “Plan for responsible growth” and heard very specific answers.
From the very beginning, the meeting featured many very decisive declarations – the tone was set by the President of Employers of Poland Andrzej Malinowski in his opening speech. – The “Plan for responsible growth” is a prologue to hard work. We talked about it at Employers of Poland and have many interesting ideas. We want to participate in the program both in conceptual terms and by helping carry it out – declared President Malinowski, adding that works on the role of entrepreneurs in implementing the plan are currently underway at Employers of Poland and will continue.
– Please consider yourself invited to the consultations – responded Deputy PM Morawiecki. – For me, Employers and entrepreneurs are among key partners in dialog – he added and assured that he intends to cooperate with entrepreneurs in making the objectives of the plan a reality. – Our ambition is to create the best possible conditions for the development of entrepreneurship. We want to invisible hand of the market to be aided by the invisible hand of the state – said Morawiecki.
Creating said conditions will involve helping entrepreneurs grow and distribute their goods and services in markets that are tough for Polish companies. Therefore, representation in economically important countries, such as China or Thailand, will be built or re-built. Deputy PM Morawiecki clearly stressed that he wanted to reconstruct the Public Procurement Law, so that solutions similar to those used in Germany or France can be used. In these countries, 90 percent of tenders are won by domestic companies.
– We have to take care of our economy. This is not interventionism. Moreover, when the West lectures us on free market principles, we should keep in mind that Western economies were built on protectionism – stressed Morawiecki.
– On behalf of Employers of Poland, I declare the willingness to participate in the important undertaking that is the Plan. Feel free to use our expertise, we are open to cooperation – declared President Andrzej Malinowski in his closing statement.
