A key focus for the Polish government in 2018 will be to ensure the financial security of families, the country’s prime minister has said.

Speaking to public broadcaster TVP on Monday evening, Mateusz Morawiecki said that his government would work to “ensure that there are as many well-paid jobs as possible.”
He added that every effort would be made to guarantee “internal security in terms of both finances and the physical security of citizens."
The government will also work to ensure "external security” by protecting the country’s borders, Morawiecki said, "in addition to guaranteeing security against various ideas and initiatives being proposed in the world around us by either the European Union or our other neighbours.”
When asked about the biggest challenges for his Cabinet in the new year, Morawiecki listed the health service, including protracted protests by doctors and a shortage of medical personnel, which he said was a legacy of inadequate government policies during the previous 25 years.
"We have a very imperfect medical system that needs to be improved and looked at in a slightly different way," Morawiecki said.
