In an interview with public broadcaster Polish Radio on Saturday, Morawiecki said that the Polish government’s development program for Silesia, which is Poland’s southern mining region, was to “help change Silesia towards a modern industry.”

With Poland’s coal-dominated electricity mix expected to become more diversified over the next few years in response to the European Union's climate policy, the country’s drive towards a low-emission model was to be sustained while maintaining jobs, Morawiecki said.

“The EU climate policy makes [the transformation] challenging, but the trick is to adjust these goals so that the transformation … could take place according to the capabilities of absorbing these changes by the Upper Silesian mining region,” Morawiecki told the public broadcaster.

A total of PLN 42 (EUR 9.8 bn) from planned PLN 55 bn (EUR 12.9 bn) has been invested in the region since 2017 when the gov't program was introduced, Morawiecki told the Polish Radio.

He added that the program was a multi-faceted plan and pertained to various areas of the economy such as industry, infrastructure and science.

Funds have also been used to create new courses at Silesia’s universities; Morawiecki was quoted as saying by Polish Radio.
