97 active cell phone numbers per 100 citizens was Poland's "penetration level" at the end of December, according to the Office of Electronic Communications.

A group of Polish entrepreneurs affiliated in an organization known as the Executive Club met at the Sobański Palace in Warsaw March 10 to discuss issues including the need to invest in road and rail infrastructure in Poland. They agreed that infrastructure projects could help mitigate the effects of the ongoing economic slowdown.

The meeting, which was sponsored by Warsaw firms Cigno Consulting and Holon Consultants, featured speakers including construction company executives and officials from institutions responsible for preparing and carrying out road and railway construction projects in Poland.

Janusz Piechociński, deputy chairman of the parliamentary committee on infrastructure, opened the discussion, which also featured Zbigniew Rapciak, undersecretary of state at the Infrastructure Ministry; Krzysztof Celiński, president of PKP Intercity company; Marek Michałowski, chairman of Budimex SA; and Waldemar Merski, vice-chairman of Eurovia Polska.

The panelists and guests invited to the meeting discussed ways of overcoming obstacles to investment in Poland's infrastructure systems.

Discussing legal regulations governing infrastructure projects, participants agreed that these rules should be stable, transparent and applied in the right way-with the use of common sense.

The discussion also focused on the work of contractors and their capabilities in terms of human resources. According to Michałowski, the current crisis paradoxically offers an opportunity to accelerate infrastructure projects in Poland because building materials and labor are now cheaper than they used to be, while construction companies' production capacity has not decreased.

The Executive Club is an association that was established in 2005 to help entrepreneurs exchange views and experiences on issues important to those doing business in Poland.
