The head of state made the declaration at an event in the Presidential Palace, where representatives of 70 start-up companies mingled with officials from 30 large businesses interested, or already engaged, in working together with start-ups on research, development and innovation.
These big firms included PKO BP bank and the oil and gas conglomerate PGNiG.
Andrzej Duda said such cooperation should be a model for economic growth and Tuesday's initiative, bringing start-ups and larger companies together, also shows "how the role of state authorities should be performed."
As the President noted, the state "should primarily enact the best possible regulations, give incentives, create a good tax system, which will help us participate in the development of the state, but also enable us to develop."
The head of state added that public administration should be strong and law-abiding, so that "the money due under court rulings is paid out swiftly, the swindlers are caught and punished, because then one can peacefully conduct fair business."
"Such are the duties of the state and I assure you I am seeking to make sure they are performed as well as possible," the President said. (PAP)
