Poland benefits from the presence in the European Union, primarily through access to the common market, protection of fundamental rights and freedoms of EU citizens and participation in the platform of peaceful cooperation in Europe. Therefore, we strive to make our position in the EU stronger.
Poland’s membership in the EU means not only European funds, but above all, access to the common market, whose four freedoms (movement of goods, services, capital and people), competition law and the restrictions on state aid, common product standards, and in the absence thereof, mutual recognition, are protected by the Court of Justice of the EU. The primacy of EU law over national law ensures the uniform application of rules throughout the common market. Moreover, European funds that are allocated to Poland should be spent as effectively as possible to foster development and not to pursue current political interests.
At present, there is no better alternative for Poland than its membership in the European Union. Poland’s role in the EU should be to ensure a high level of freedom, including economic freedom, within the community and to strengthen the common market, which is so important for development.
