Government spokesman Piotr Müller informed yesterday that the final version of the Polish National Reconstruction Plan was sent to Brussels. This information was confirmed by the permanent representative to the EU, and in the evening also by the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen.
“The Commission will evaluate the Polish plan in the next two months based on the eleven criteria set out in the regulation and will translate its content into legally binding acts. This assessment will in particular review whether the plan contributes to an effective solution to all or a significant part of the challenges identified in the relevant country-specific recommendations issued in the context of the European Semester,” the EC reminded of the next steps for the NAP.
It also announced checking whether the plan provides for at least 37 percent spending on investments and reforms supporting climate goals and 20 percent on digital transformation.
Meanwhile, the Polish Sejm at an additional meeting adopted the law on the ratification of the European Council decision of December 14, 2020, on the system of own resources of the European Union. 290 deputies voted "for", 33 "against", and 133 MPs abstained. Now the bill will go to the Senate.
