‘New production capacity based on the latest technologies means that fully electric and hybrid cars will be built in Poland.

I hope this is just the beginning of good economic news for Poland!’  - he wrote.

‘One of the lowest GDP declines in Europe and positive forecasts from economic institutions for next year. We do everything we can to protect as many workplaces as possible and to help entrepreneurs.
