    Estimated reading time: 1 minute

    Poland’s National Reconstruction Plan (NRP) has successfully secured a 5 billion euro advance, announced former Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. Emphasizing the negotiation efforts of the Law and Justice (PiS) government, Morawiecki responded to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen’s confirmation of the 5 billion euro disbursement.

    PiS Government’s Role

    Morawiecki took to social media, asserting that the NRP negotiations were conducted by the PiS government. He specifically noted that the 5 billion euro advance was a result of the PiS administration’s negotiations.

    Former Minister of Funds and Regional Policy in the PiS government, Grzegorz Puda, denounced opposition claims, stating that the decision to grant the advance was made on December 9 during the Ecofin council meeting, following the positive consideration of the payment request he submitted in March.

    Next Steps and Conditions

    Poland formally submitted payment requests for the NRP on Friday, with the European Commission confirming receipt of the first request totaling 6.3 billion euros. However, disbursements are contingent on Poland achieving satisfactory progress on the specified milestones outlined in the NRP.

    As Poland progresses with its National Reconstruction Plan, securing the 5 billion euro advance marks a crucial step in the nation’s economic recovery, with ongoing scrutiny on the fulfillment of outlined reforms and investments.
