Tax on carbon footprints. The United Kingdom will stay economically in Europe. The Polish mega airport. We no longer ask why - we ask how. Here are the news from the first day of the European Economic Congress in Katowice.
Tax on carbon footprints
“EU should impose a tax on carbon footprints for goods imported from countries which do not follow a strategy of fighting emissions”, said Krzysztof Tchórzewski, Poland’s Minister of Energy during EEC 2019 (in the picture above). “We are of the opinion that energy transformation should be evolutionary, at a rate ensuring the safety of the State. It must also ensure regular and certain access to energy for our citizens, at socially acceptable prices, while minimising the adverse impact of energy on the environment,” he added.
The United Kingdom will stay economically in Europe
We must look forward to the future, we must think how we should continue cooperating. “If the European Union continues to be interested in cooperation, the UK will also be ready,” assured Lord Martin Callanan, UK’s Minister of State for Exiting the European Union, in the debate on Future EU-UK relations during the European Economic Congress. “We are leaving the European Union, but we do not wish to exit Europe. Economically we will stay a European country,” he stressed.

Two sessions at EEC 2019 were devoted to the construction of the Central Transportation Hub (CPK) in the centre of Poland, between Warsaw and Łódź. “For 20 years we have been discussing a new airport. A long discussion often ends up in stalemate. Each large investment requires decisions. The time when we have been thinking whether we should go ahead has passed. Now we are thinking how,” said Mikołaj Wild, the Government's representative for CPK, Secretary of State at the Ministry of the Infrastructure.
