I call for the funds entirely due to Poland, which completed all the procedures required by the relevant regulation, to be mobilised under the Recovery and Resilience Facility and  stop using them to influence the Polish government. Such practices can only reinforce the narrative of distrust aimed at EU institutions and lead to further polarization in relations between Poland and the EU, as well as among Polish citizens itself. At the end of the day, it is the Polish citizens and entrepreneurs, who will lose the most…

Memorandum of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers on inflation

The economies of Poland and the European Union are going through hard times. Since the beginning of March 2020, the world has been struggling with a pandemic, and in spite of a pronounced recovery in 2021, the new COVID-19 variants keep the global economy from healing completely.

Opinion of the Chief Economist of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers on the economic benefits of transformation and accession to the EU

Systemic transformation of our region began in a formal sense over three decades ago.

Opinion of the Chief Economist of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers on rising prices of raw materials for energy

Prices of raw materials used for energy production have increased drastically over the last year. It was all the more dramatic as the recession that took place due to the COVID-19 pandemic lowered those prices “temporarily” to their lowest levels in more than a decade.

Commentary of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers on the announcement of the “Anti-Inflation Shield”

Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki presented today his plan to introduce an “Anti-Inflation Shield”.
