Alongside the Polish PM, taking part in the inauguration of Business & Science Poland was Vice President of the European Commission for the Energy Union Maros Sefcovic.

“We want to have strong mechanisms influencing legislation in Brussels,” PM Morawiecki said. “Maintaining freedom of services is crucial for us.”

He further added that there are 12,000 companies registered in Brussels but the proportion of Polish companies is low. “There is still much for us to do,” he said.

The role of BSP is to advise enterprises on understanding the decision-making and legislative processes in the EU and provide support in the advocacy efforts of its members. At the moment, BSP members only include state-owned companies and public institutions, such as major oil refiner and petrol retailer Orlen, LOT Polish Airlines, Polish Post, and the Warsaw Stock Exchange.
