Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki wrote on Facebook on Thursday that he would present to the European Council by teleconference the position he had outlined in an article for Thursday's edition of Germany's Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ).

"Today, more than ever, we need a Europe of Solidarity - with an ambitious budget, a new, rebuilt balance. We must save European dreams, plans and ambitions. How should we achieve that? By adopting a comprehensive plan of renewing the economy, deepening cooperation and increasing expenditures within the Multiannual Financial Framework," the PM wrote on Facebook, reiterating the main themes of an article he had written for Thursday's FAZ, published online a day earlier.

"We already know that the belt-tightening strategy of the years 2007-2013 did not work. What is needed is a fiscal stimulus, which will come from the heart of the European Union and renew our economies. Where to get these funds? From new taxes, better fiscal control, tackling fraud, tax havens and speculative capital. Over the course of the past few years, Poland has shown how to do it effectively. That's how we will cope with the consequences of the pandemic, defining the European Union anew," Morawiecki wrote.

"'The future starts today, not tomorrow,' said Saint John Paul II. 'The time for action is now.'"
