Poland looks to Canada with hope and wants to use its experience, President Bronislaw Komorowski said in Warsaw opening a Poland-Canada seminar on innovation and enterprise.

 

Attending the Friday meeting in the Warsaw Stock Exchange were enterprisers from both countries and Canadian Governor-General David Johnston.

 

In his opening address Bronislaw Komorowski mentioned Poland's economic transformations and reminded that this year marked the 25th anniversary of the fall of Poland's communist regime.

 

"This year we are celebrating 25 years of re-won freedom, including economic freedom. These 25 years were a time we used exceptionally well, moving from an economy marked by shortage, hyperinflation and overall stagnation to a dynamic and effective market economy", the president remarked.

 

Bronislaw Komorowski observed that Poland's GDP was on a steady rise for over 20 years and stressed that innovation was a must for sustained growth.

 

"For more than 20 years our GDP has been on a constant rise, were above the red and moving forward. We know that we need a new growth impulse to uphold the economic growth pace and we know that the deciding factor today may be innovation. Innovation (...) must become a standing feature of our economy", Bronislaw Komorowski observed.

Mentioning Poland's development plans, Komorowski reminded that the Polish government will spend over EUR 10 billion, including 8.6 billion from the EU's Intelligent Development Programme, on innovation in coming years.

"This is what will give us the chance for long-term growth over the coming twenty-five years", Komorowski said.

 

President Komorowski voiced contentment over last month's conclusion of EU-Canadian talks on a complex economic and trade agreement and noted that this spelt a big chance for raising commerce between Canada and Poland.

 

"Poland looks to Canada with hope as it is one of the most innovative and competitive economies in the world. We want to use the experience of the Canadian state, society and economy", Komorowski declared. (PAP)
