This year, Poland begins the annual presidency of the Visegrad Group. It falls on an extraordinary period of economic downturn and the coronavirus crisis. These are great challenges, but I believe that we will cope with them perfectly, prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki emphasized on Saturday.
Morawiecki in a Facebook post announced that one of the most important goals he sees at the moment is “to unite Poles around ambitious projects that will help us overcome the crisis and materialize the idea of solidarity – the internal Polish and international in Europe.” As he added, he means the Solidarity Transport Hub Poland (Central Communication Port), the Vistula Spit excavation, the Via Carpathia road. In the opinion of Morawiecki, these infrastructure projects will strengthen not only the economic and military security of Poland, but the entire V4 group. “Hungary and the prime minister Viktor Orban understand this perfectly well – we share common historical experiences with this nation, especially the fight against communism and the restrictions imposed on us. The Polish-Hungarian alliance is particularly important to me, and as the last summit in Brussels showed – it is also effective and can bring great fruit to the entire Visegrad Group and Central Europe,” the prime minister stressed.
