Prime Minister of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki was named the “Person of the Year” of the XXIX Economic Forum. The award was presented by Elżbieta Witek, Speaker of the Sejm.

– 2018 was a good year for Poland in case of economics and it’s to entrepreneurs who don’t hesitate to take the risk. This award belongs to them – said the Prime Minister when he received the award. Mateusz Morawicki appreciated the beauty of Krynica-Zdrój and, as he emphasized, he enjoyed the Economic Forum. However, he is most pleased with the ambitious plans of Polish companies, which are frequently and widely discussed in Krynica.

– It’s already 14th Economic Forum I took part in, I take a look at its evolution, the evolution of the Polish economy, the Polish economic system and I think we all can look forward in the next fourteen years to being able to say that we are more or less at the level of economic development of Western Europe – underlined Mateusz Morawiecki.

According to the Prime Minister, thanks to the visionary approach of Polish companies, there are more and more years of development ahead of us.

– Let those our, economic and social, wings lead us into a beautiful economic future. This is our duty and our goal. Thank you for appreciating the Polish economy, entrepreneurs and Polish employees – said Prime Minister Morawiecki in his speech.
