Poland's government has initiated a special social and informational campaign titled "Good to Be Together: 20 Years of Poland in the European Union," marking a significant milestone in the

country's integration into the bloc.

Regional Policy Minister Katarzyna Pełczyńska-Nałęcz expressed, "The 20th anniversary of Poland's membership in the European Union is a success for Polish men and women," during a press conference introducing the campaign.

She emphasized that no other society or country in the region has utilized its presence in the EU as effectively as Poland has, noting the significant accomplishments achieved.

Polish entrepreneurs have successfully penetrated the EU market, with exports increasing sixfold and surpassing imports to the EU by nearly EUR 80 billion annually, Pełczyńska-Nałęcz stated.

She also praised food producers for their substantial contribution to this success and highlighted the significant role of Polish municipalities in carrying out approximately 300,000 projects over the past two decades, contributing to progress and regional development.

Since its accession to the EU in 2004, Poland has received considerable financial support totaling EUR 261 billion from the EU, while contributing EUR 85.8 billion to EU coffers over the same period, resulting in a net balance of EUR 175 billion in Poland's favor.

Pełczyńska-Nałęcz emphasized the impressive grassroots activity by local government officials, activists, and others in achieving this success.

To commemorate the country's 20 years in the EU, the Ministry of Funds and Regional Policy will coordinate a public awareness campaign titled "Good to Be Together: 20 Years of Poland in the European Union," announced Deputy Regional Policy Minister Jan Szyszko.

The campaign aims to highlight the achievements of Poland's EU membership and its impact on improving the quality of life, reflected in the success stories of individuals and businesses.

Over 1,000 events will be organized throughout Poland as part of the campaign. Photo by User:MateuszEs, User:Kpalion, Wikimedia commons.
