Mariusz Błaszczak was speaking at the international Defence24 Day conference, which convened in Warsaw to discuss a range of military and security topics, including ways of modernizing Poland's armed forces and the role of domestic producers in the process.

Błaszczak told the gathering that the overriding aim of the modernization drive was to “make Poland stronger and more secure.”

Poland’s government on Tuesday approved the country's budget for 2022, which ensures a hefty stream of cash on defence and security, according to officials.

The country's defence spending is expected to stand at 2.2 percent of GDP next year, state news agency PAP reported.

The two-day Defence24 Day conference in the Polish capital includes debates on topics such as the use of unmanned aerial vehicles for security and defence purposes, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.

The event is being held at Warsaw’s EXPO XXI exhibition centre under the auspices of the Polish defence ministry, the president’s National Security Bureau (BBN), the Ministry of State Assets, and the Government Centre for Security (RCB).

Polish Radio is a media partner of the event, which runs until Thursday.
