    Polish businesses to help Ukraine revamp public infrastructure

    Polish companies have been given the green light to take part in the reconstruction of public infrastructure in Ukraine, according to a Polish government spokesman. This is one of the first projects that these firms will be involved in following the war in Ukraine.

    “Let me confirm that the rebuilding of public infrastructure in Kharkiv, among other places, will be amid the first projects which will be carried out by Polish companies,” Piotr Mueller told reporters on Thursday.

    On Wednesday, Poland and Ukraine signed a memorandum of cooperation to begin the process of reconstructing Ukraine, which has been ravaged by war. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki attended the signing in Warsaw.

    According to Mueller, further information about the agreement including details of specific contracts will be revealed shortly as negotiations are ongoing.

    Polish and Ukrainian officials have been discussing the potential of joint arms production, according to Polish Minister of Defense Mariusz Blaszczak. Though Blaszczak acknowledged that talks have been ongoing, he conceded that the process is more complex than initially anticipated.

    Polish officials recently announced that the government is boosting production of the state-owned Polish Armaments Group (PGZ). To further this aim, they have passed a resolution on the national ammunition programme, which is intended to raise output in Poland. This was revealed by Robert Mueller, the head of PGZ.

    “Ukraine continues to buy certain equipment from the PGZ. Our decision to increase ammunition production capacities in our plants is also arousing interest in Ukraine,” Mueller concluded.
