PM Morawiecki: Poland to spend EUR 3-4 billion on e-mobility

Taking part in Tuesday's COP24 debates, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki declared that Poland "will directly allocate about EUR 3-4 billion in the next 10 years" for e-mobility development. "We will increase these amounts in our nearest budgets," he added.

Morawiecki noted that in the early 1990s there were some 5 million cars registered in Poland, today there are 22-23 million, that is why e-mobility is at the heart of the country's economic development.

The PM stressed that the development of e-mobility as well as of public transport "serves both improving the quality of the climate, clean air, but also creating new jobs and raising the level of technological development."

Morawiecki pointed out that Poland has a comprehensive policy of responsible development of which the Development Plan for Electromobility is an integral part.

Morawiecki announced that Poland and the World Bank will establish an electromobility fund which will finance the implementation of partnership projects at the local level between cities and regions. "Maybe cities like Cairo, Katowice, Warsaw, Shanghai or Jakarta will find for themselves opportunities for bilateral and multilateral cooperation," said Morawiecki.

The Polish PM also invited COP24 participants to the first global electromobility forum 'Driving Change Together,' which is to take place in Poland next year.
