Poland is still an emerging country; I ask for a positive attitude towards the rebuilding of the Republic, President Andrzej Duda said on Wednesday. He also opined that Polish citizens required a strong country deeply rooted within Europe.

 

During an appearance at the inauguration of the academic year at the Warsaw School of Economics, the president said that in economic terms, Poland is in a "much better" place than in 1989. "Professors, you remember very well how much people were earning in Poland in those days - in 1988, 1989 - and how it related to the dollar, taking into account current average salaries in Poland. Our GDP has risen in an exceptional way during those nearly thirty years", he declared.

 

However, he indicated, "it's still only a little over half of what rich Western European countries earn; we're still emerging". This is why the work of Polish economists, academics, and graduates who manage both Polish and foreign companies is so important, he added.

 

"I don't think I need to persuade anybody that capital has a nationality, that each country and its authorities should primarily focus on the interests of that country and the society it serves", President Duda continued, making reference to the recent appearance by US President Donald Trump at the General Assembly of the United Nations. "He's the President of the United States, so he primarily focuses on the United States' interests, that's his primary interest, something that can be called the interest of the American taxpayer", he explained.

 

"Since the very start of my work for the Republic of Poland, my service, I have said the same thing: my primary responsibility - first as an MP, today as the president - is to serve the Republic of Poland, to serve the Polish society. I ask the same of you, to primarily focus on building the Republic", the president stressed.

 

According to the president, Polish citizens currently require "a strong Polish country, deeply embedded within Europe, (...) which can bring its best to that Europe. (...) I strongly believe that it's possible, just like Pope John Paul II told us in 2004, before our accession referendum, where we decided to join the EU", he added.

 

"It's an enormous task. It lies primarily in the hands of politicians, of course, including myself, it also lies in the hands of Polish entrepreneurs and those who manage Polish economic entities, or other entities in Poland, but it also lies in the hands of the next generation", he said. (PAP)
