Prepayment of KPO for Poland. The European Commission has approved the payment of 5 billion euros

The European Commission has approved the payment of 5 billion euros to Poland. This concerns an advance from the amended National Reconstruction Plan.

“EU commissioners will officially announce their decision on this issue today. But it has already been formally adopted. There are many indications that the money will appear early next year. It is unlikely to be received by the end of December. ”, reports RMF FM.

As indicated, the EC’s decision must still be accepted by the finance ministers of 27 EU countries on December 8. However, this would only be a formality. That must be emphasized payment of the advance does not mean that the Polish National Reconstruction Plan is unblocked, because it concerns Warsaw meeting the so-called milestones. “The money in question is extra money for energy independence from Russia. The advance does not depend on the state of the rule of law in our country,” reserves RMF FM.

Puda: Poland will receive more than 5 billion euros in advance payments from the KPO

– The payment of the funds is the result of many months of work and very effective actions of officials of the Ministry of Funds and Regional Policy – ​​said Grzegorz Puda, Minister of Funds and Regional Policy, on Wednesday.

He said that a positive assessment by the European Commission of the amended FPA and the new chapter of REPowerEU is expected early next week, and its adoption by the Council of the European Union is expected to take place on December 8.

Payment of advances to Poland

The payment of advances to Poland from the Recovery and Resilience Fund results from the programming of investments and reforms in the new chapter of the FPA, namely REPowerEU. The REPowerEU budget awards Poland €2.76 billion in grants and another €22.5 billion in loans. The funds will be disbursed after the Minister of Funds and Regional Policy signs agreements with the EC for the subsidy and loan part in December.

Next year, Poland will receive advances in two tranches, each amounting to more than 2.5 billion euros (from the grant and loan part). Our country will receive two advances from the subsidy part, each for an amount of more than PLN 1.2 billion. Poland submitted the application for revision of the KPO on time. – The awarding of money to our country under REPowerEU is the result of my submission, as Minister, of an appropriate application and the very effective actions of officials of the Ministry of Funds and Regional Policy – ​​said Grzegorz Puda.
