Mateusz Morawiecki, the prime minister, has said that he hopes “for a strong economic rebound” this year despite the need to battle the economic threat posed by the coronavirus pandemic.

While Poland is expected to take an economic hit from the pandemic and its resulting lockdown restrictions many economists expect it to suffer less damage than other European countries.

"First, let's fight the pandemic, and then I hope for a strong economic rebound and the return of all industries to a post-pandemic normality," the prime minister wrote on Facebook on Friday.

Morawiecki added that Poland "is facing great challenges this year. I hope that thanks to the cooperation between the government and the private sector, we will be able to cope with them very well."

The prime minister wrote that in cooperation with the private sector he also wants to introduce a "new Polish order."
