The next batch of Poland's anti-crisis solutions will focus on the country's social insurance institution (ZUS), micro and large companies and VAT exemptions on books, PM Mateusz Morawiecki announced on Saturday.

Poland will have to make a formal request to the European Commission, the EU's executive arm, before it introduces the VAT exemption, Morawiecki said.

The government will put forward "solutions concerning ZUS micro companies but also very large companies, as nearly all sectors of the Polish economy have been hit by this unprecedented crisis," the prime minister said.

According to Morawiecki, the government's measures have saved between 1.5 million and 2 million jobs, so far.
