Former presidents Aleksander Kwasniewski and Bronisław Komorowski called on the Polish government to approve a long-term migration policy that will give more rights to Ukrainians workers. This is stated in ex-presidents’ joint appeal, Ukrinform reports.
According to politicians, Ukrainian labor migrants ensure the competitiveness of Polish enterprises.
“Maintaining a high pace of economic development is possible thanks to labor migrants from Ukraine who have chosen Poland as their workplace, and more often choose Poland as place to reside,” the message says.
Former presidents noted that since 2020, Germany has significantly simplified the rules for labor migrants from outside the EU, which may result in outflow of labor force from Poland – especially highly qualified specialists.
“We urge to take an immediate steps to develop a long-term migration policy in cooperation with expert centers, local authorities and trade unions,” Kwasniewski and Komorowski emphasized.
As The Journalist reported, Almost 3,000 Ukrainians were born in Poland last year.
