One thing is for certain – the government cannot take the credit for recent economic achievements – said the President of Employers of Poland Andrzej Malinowski. – Applause is due first and foremost for Polish entrepreneurs, as we have their hard work and daily effort for the development of the economy developing, the decrease in unemployment and the growth of the country.
