The government will do all it can to build a Central Transportation Port in central Poland, PM Mateusz Morawiecki said on Wednesday at the 2nd Railway Development Congress in Warsaw.

Morawiecki said that the port lay "at the heart" of his Strategy for Responsible Development national growth programme and was a top priority for his government.

"The government will do everything in its power to bring the Central Transportation Port into existence. It is a major element in our economic growth and, as such, has the highest priority status for the government," Morawiecki said.

Infrastructure Minister Andrzej Adamczyk said that the port was a driving force for the national economy, and added that he was certain Polish enterprise would be able to cope with the task.

The Central Transportation Port, a greenfield project, is located in central Poland between Warsaw and Lodz, and is designed to integrate air, rail and road transport.
