The government wants Poland to be a country where economic freedom flourishes, barriers removed and further simplifications of the law introduced, Deputy Prime Minister Jarosław Gowin said at Monday’s press conference in the Sejm (lower house).

Gowin, who is also the Minister of Science and Higher Education, cited the recent CEOWorld Magazine ranking which named Poland as the second best country in the world to invest in or do business.

"This is proof that the plans and activities of the United Right (ruling - PAP) camp, and above all the activities of the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Technology, with the Constitution for Business at the forefront, jointly prepared by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and (Entrepreneurship - PAP) Minister Jadwiga Emilewicz, are bringing about desirable effects," Gowin assessed.

"We want Poland to be a country where economic freedom flourishes as widely as possible, we want to remove further barriers, we want to introduce further simplifications of the law," he stressed.

The Deputy Prime Minister stated that Prime Minister Morawiecki would present new proposals at the turn of January and February, and that some of them will concern the tax system.

Gowin also pointed out that the Constitution for Business entered into force on January 1, and that it contains "a series of solutions that Polish entrepreneurs have been expecting for many years." (PAP)
