Poland proposed a PLN 212 billion (appr. EUR 47 billion) program to mitigate economic damage caused by the coronavirus outbreak, which Morawiecki said could last for months.
The package will boost infrastructure and healthcare spending, and help struggling companies pay salaries to avoid layoffs and allow them to defer social security payments, Morawiecki said.
He added that the fiscal plan will be translated into draft legislation by the end of this week and then sent for parliamentary approval.
