COVID-19: We have saved over 6.5 million jobs: Family Minister on state aid

“In total, over PLN 190 bln (EUR 41.7 bln) has been allocated to saving jobs, which also affects the situation of [Polish] families,” said Marlena Maląg, Minister of Family and Social Policy, in an interview with Polish Radio.

Ms Maląg stressed that the pandemic period is a very difficult time for everyone and added that the research commissioned by her ministry on the condition of families showed that many of them are struggling to cope with the pandemic. “It has been a year of struggle (…) in the fight for the life and health of Poles, but also in saving jobs,” she emphasised.

The minister indicated that despite the difficult situation, social programmes are being implemented continuously. She also stressed the importance of the implemented financial aid granted to companies by the Polish state.

“Of these mechanisms, a total of over PLN 190 bln (EUR 41.7 bln) was allocated to saving jobs. We can confidently say that we saved over 6.5 million jobs, which affects the situation of families,” said Ms Malag.

“Poland is prepared to recover from the pandemic on the path of rapid economic growth,” she concluded.
