Ilona Antoniszyn-Klik

Undersecretary in the Ministry of the Economy


Today, building the image of a reliable business partner is increasingly becoming a more appreciated element in building the competitive edge of enterprises. It is also very important in view of the challenges the economy is currently having to face. In accordance with the Europe 2020 EU strategy, the aim of the economy is to create an intelligent and sustainable development respecting at the same time social and environmental needs.

In pursuing Poland’s economic policy, the Ministry of the Economy enters into a dialogue with a wide range of stakeholders on the challenges of sustainable growth and the role of business in the process. Under the works coordinated by the Corporate Social Responsibility Team in the Ministry of the Economy we wish to strengthen the market cooperation systems based on trust and transparency. We attribute a special role to business leaders who are to become the authors of change and who initiate new solutions based on social and environmental responsibility principles.

As member of the Polska Miedź Foundation, I all the more appreciate the efforts of your Company as, despite the difficult economic conditions that have prevailed in recent years, you effectively meet business challenges and guarantee high quality management and responsibility for your impact on the community and the environment. This determines an over-average level of social and economic commitment which should be treated as an example.
