Poland is still waiting for the approval of the National Reconstruction Plan by the European Commission. – It is unlikely that the work will be finalized before the end of the year – said the deputy head of the European Commission Valdis Dombrovskis, responsible for economic affairs, on Tuesday.
The deputy head of the European Commission, Valdis Dombrovskis, responsible for economic affairs, spoke about the Polish National Reconstruction Plan at a press conference after the meeting of EU finance ministers.
– It is unlikely that the work will be finalized before the end of the year. But what matters most is the content of these talks, so it will depend on the merits how quickly progress will be made in these talks, said Dombrovskis. As he added, talks with Poland are ongoing and concern the independence of the judiciary, especially the Disciplinary Chamber.
National Reconstruction Plan
The Reconstruction Fund is a means of reviving the EU economy after the COVID-19 pandemic, and at the same time responding to the greatest challenges of our time: the climate and digital transformation. To receive support, Member States must present their recovery plans to the European Commission. The Polish National Reconstruction Plan was delivered to Brussels in early May this year.
Even though more than six months have passed since then, our country is still waiting for the green light from the European Commission. Each country will receive the first tranche only after the European Commission approves the national spending plan, which must meet the criteria set out in EU law.
