– After several months of consultations on the Public-Private Partnership between Employers of Poland, the Ministry of Economic Development, experts, business and local governments, we meet here to discuss specific tools and solutions at our disposal in order to improve the scope and quality of PPP projects – said Piotr Kamiński.
Witold Słowik, presented the guidelines and plans included in the Sustainable Growth Strategy pertaining to the Public-Private Partnership. – The Ministry of Economic Development sees the Partnership as a major source for financing economic growth. We have grown accustomed to financing growth, particularly in infrastructure, with grants. However, the investment needs of our country are far bigger – Słowik emphasized.
The Platform is intended as a special body devoted to thorough analysis of infrastructural investments, particularly those conducted in the Public-Private Partnership formula. Its objective will be to elaborate common positions, opinions and recommendations regarding all issues directly or indirectly pertaining to entities involved in investments in infrastructure.
