Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki on Tuesday said that the scale of the amendment of the 2020 budget law would most likely be smaller in size.

The PM added that the budget law would most likely be amended in the second half of the year, as a result of the crisis caused by the coronavirus epidemic.

The PM noted that the economic situation "seems to be even under better control," as the government "over two, three months has allocated all our reserves to save jobs."

Morawiecki, speaking in Poznań, western Poland, said that "thanks to the government-financed (anti-crisis) shield, the Wielkopolskie province has already received PLN 10 billion (EUR 2.25 billion), which has made it possible to save hundreds of jobs in the region."
