At least 10,000 new jobs will be created in Poland in coming years, deputy PM Mateusz Morawiecki said Friday commenting the results of his Thursday talks with British investors in London.
During his one-day visit in the UK capital Morawiecki spoke with representatives of British firms and investment funds eyeing the Polish market as an investment site.
Morawiecki said his London talks should effect in at least 7-10 thousand new jobs in Poland with prospects for more. Planned among others are investments in IT, project management, data management and big data management. He added that the projects will be sited mainly in large cities like Warsaw, Krakow, Wroclaw, Poznan, Gdansk, Lodz and Szczecin.
In London Morawiecki also spoke with British Secretary of State for International Trade Liam Fox, with whom he among others discussed Poland's possible role as a liaison between Britain and the EU in the wake of Britain's decision to leave the Community.
Commenting his words on Britain's BBC Radio 4 channel that he expected up to 200 thousand Poles currently in Britain to return home in effect of Britain's decision to exit the EU, Morawiecki admitted that it will probably be difficult to convince them to come home. He added that Poland should try to encourage at least 10-15 percent of them to return. (PAP, 2 September 2016)
