The level of innovation in an economy is a gauge of how effective politicians in a given country are, Polish President Andrzej Duda said in the Swiss resort of Davos on Tuesday. Poland has the potential for innovation and for innovation-based growth, he added.

 

President Andrzej Duda is taking part in the World Economic Forum in Davos until Thursday. The forum itself will end on Friday.

We have a potential to create innovation as well as openness and readiness to use them and this way contribute to their further growth," the president said at a discussion panel devoted to the fourth industrial revolution in emerging markets.

 

"We know there is no alternative for industry 4.0. Those who fail to adapt to the changes, will be marginalised or will simply drop out of the market," the Polish president said.

 

The president recalled that he had already signed into law two innovation bills aimed to introduce systemic solutions encouraging innovation.

 

"In the 21st century, the measure of politicians' effectiveness is the level of innovation in the economies of the countries they represent," President Andrzej Duda said.

 

Poland needs to spend substantial funds on science and research and to promote Polish start-up firms and foreign expansion in order to make its economy strong, resilient and advanced, Andrzej Duda argued.

 

The President praised Poland's track record of high growth, which in 2018 reached 5 percent, and the country's recent inclusion in a group of developed economies.

 

Poland's banking system is one of the most innovative in the world, with every fourth Polish consumer using proximity card payments every day, the president stressed. Nine out of ten Poles make an online transaction at least once a month, he added.

 

On Tuesday, Andrzej Duda attended a panel organised in Davos by Poland's major bank, Bank Pekao S.A., which together with Polish leading insurer PZU co-hosts a national pavilion, the Polish House, during the World Economic Forum. (PAP)
