Nov. 16 marked three years since the coalition government of the Civic Platform (PO) and Polish People’s Party (PSL) took office. “I believe the successful safeguarding of Poland from the economic crisis can never be overestimated,” said Prime Minister Donald Tusk, adding that this was the main achievement of his cabinet. Tusk said that over the past three years, Poland had consolidated its position in Europe and the world. “We are the leaders in terms of obtaining funds from the EU and we have caught up with other countries when it comes to absorbing the funds,” Tusk said.

Tusk highlighted the accelerated investment in Polish infrastructure. “The symbol of this acceleration is the road system,” he said. “It means a lot to us, because Polish roads used to symbolize all that Poland failed to achieve for decades. Today, we are building the most roads and are unrivaled with freeways, expressways and local roads. We were planning on building 6,000 kilometers of local roads, but there will be 2,000 km more. We have also started modernizing Polish railroads. Modernization is also under way at railway stations and airports. Projects related to the Euro 2012 [European soccer championships] are worth over 100 billion euros.”

According to Tusk, a top priority for the government in the coming months will be reforms of the administration.
