President of Employers of Poland participated in the fourth meeting of the Strategic Thought Committee which took place on February 3 at the Ministry of Economy. The meeting was chaired by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy Janusz Piechociński.
The discussion was focused on how to adapt the development of Polish economy’s competitiveness to the demands of European integration.
Andrzej Malinowski stressed that the direction, in which the European Union is developing, should be seen as complimentary to Poland’s national interests. However, he pointed out that in recent years the EU has clearly lost the ability to fulfill the ambitious tasks outlined in its strategies.
He also argued that Poland needs a policy creating a new environment for economic activity – this need is particularly pressing as our government policy remains incoherent, and its particular aims are not coordinated with broader goals outlined in the financial and fiscal policies.
Deputy Prime Minister Janusz Piechociński pointed out that the EU’s policies also lack coordination and that decisions are made without taking its impact on the competitiveness of EU industry into consideration.
