Not only migrants from the East are supporting entrepreneurship development in Poland. Government also plans to involve young and 50+ citizens
“Labour shortages might hinder entrepreneurship in Poland. The Government is planning to reach out to young people and to unlock the potential of 50+ citizens, while also relying heavily on immigrants from the East,” reveals Jerzy Kwieciński, Minister of Investment and Economic Development. Today, 40 percent of companies are employing Ukrainians, and 10 percent Belarusians. However, it is necessary to create good working conditions and ensure decent wages and salaries. Without these, after obtaining the necessary qualifications, foreign nationals will move to Western European countries.
