Poland will present its tax collection policy in Davos - PM

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Poland will show how it deals with the revenue side of the economy, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki told public TV broadcaster TVP Info on Tuesday, the day the forum launches.

During the congress, which will last until Friday, the Polish PM will talk to business and political leaders and will discuss ways of counteracting a slowdown in the global economy.

The Polish PM admitted that "some signs from major countries in the world have been indicating that there may be an economic slowdown." But Morawiecki also said he was "very pleased that our Polish economy is doing well. We'll show how we're dealing with tax, the revenue side of the economy."

The prime minister said he is very critical of tax havens and the fact that "some companies transfer their tax settlements to other (...) countries, they're trying not to pay taxes where they generate sales." He noted that if this was eliminated, the world would be much fairer and better in economic terms.

The Polish PM is going to Davos on Wednesday. President Andrzej Duda arrived in the Swiss town on Monday evening. His agenda includes a meeting with the NATO chief and the Brazilian president.
