    Minister Jacek Sasin Pledges Unwavering Support for Polish Initiatives During Visit to Podlasie

    Minister Jacek Sasin expressed his resolute dedication to supporting initiatives that contribute to the progress of Poland. During his visit to the picturesque region of Podlasie, the Minister affirmed his government’s stance on standing by the citizens in their endeavours for a brighter future.

    Addressing a gathering of residents in the village of Kurów, Minister Jacek Sasin articulated, “We will never leave the Poles alone with their problems. We will make sure that Poland continues on the right course of development.” This message of solidarity resonated deeply with the audience, underlining the government’s pledge to provide unwavering support to those working diligently for the betterment of the nation.

    Amidst the serene backdrop of Podlasie, Minister Sasin participated in the XXII Honey Feast held in the village of Kurów. The event was not only a celebration of the region’s rich apicultural heritage but also a platform to recognize the contributions of beekeepers. Minister Sasin took the opportunity to confer special awards on beekeepers, symbolizing the government’s commitment to fostering the growth of the bee breeding and beekeeping industry.

    Minister Sasin emphasized the proactive measures being taken to bolster this vital sector. “We support the initiatives of Poles, all those who work for the good of Poland today. This is how we help beekeepers through programmes of financial support for bee breeding and beekeeping,” he stated.

    Government backing for beekeepers has gained significant momentum in recent years, with substantial funds allocated for the welfare of apiaries. This year alone, close to PLN 76.8 million were disbursed nationwide to support overwintered apiaries, benefiting 43.4 thousand beekeepers. Looking ahead, between 2023 and 2027, the Strategic Plan for the Common Agricultural Policy will channel over PLN 51.3 million to bolster the industry.

    Minister Sasin also partook in the Harvest Gala in Szumów, underscoring the government’s dedication to comprehensive social policies that cater to all segments of society. Reflecting on the government’s achievements, Minister Sasin highlighted, “Over the past eight years, we have greatly expanded social policy, we have created programmes that reach all age groups.”

    Notably, the visit to Podlasie drew attention to the persistent challenge of poverty in certain areas of Poland. The Podlaskie Voivodeship, while rich in culture and tradition, remains one of the least prosperous regions in the country and the European Union as a whole. With a wealth index at only 56 per cent of the European average, Minister Sasin affirmed his commitment to uplift this region.

    “We want it to be possible to live and work with dignity here, and to think with good prospects for the future of one’s own and one’s family’s life. This is the kind of Poland we are building and we will continue this policy. We will want to build a modern, friendly country, which does not turn its back on its citizens both in this everyday work and in crisis situations,”

    Minister Sasin concluded, encapsulating his vision for a thriving and inclusive Poland.
