The road to reforming and reconstructing socio-economic resilience
At the end of February 2021, the Polish Prime Minister and the Minister of Funds and Regional Policy announced the draft National Recovery and Resilience Plan. The document is open for public consultation until 2 April 2021. Three thematic conferences addressed the main focus areas of the Plan:

Poland is set to receive a total of € 58.1 billion from the Recovery and Resilience Facility, of which € 23.9 billion in grants. In addition, it can access loans worth € 34.2 billion on a voluntary basis. The Polish government has stated that it will preliminarily maximise the use of grants, with the intention of utilising loans at a later stage.
Priority areas for reforms and investment
The draft plan is based on five main components for the country's strategy:
- RESILIENCE and COMPETITIVENESS of the economy
- GREEN ENERGY and reduction of energy consumption
- DIGITAL transformation
- Effectiveness, accessibility and quality of the HEALTHCARE system
