The Polish gaming industry, Polish IT specialists and programmers are among the best in the world, President Andrzej Duda said on Wednesday, four days before the second round of the presidential election.

Duda added that there are about 400 companies in Poland that deal with game design and development.

The president took part in a "Summer with esports" event during which he stressed that the gaming industry in Poland is a "true industry," open to talents.

According to Duda, Polish IT specialists are among the best in the world. He added that this industry will develop and build an innovative industry, leading towards the 22nd century.

President Duda welcomed the fact that Polish IT specialists no longer go abroad to work in large foreign corporations related to this industry. He pointed out that they are finding work in domestic companies that are in the "world avant-garde".
