1. The Council of the EU has adopted our KPO, we are getting closer to the money of the Reconstruction Fund

The Council of the European Union, made up in this case of EU finance ministers, approved the Polish national reconstruction plan, which is a fundamental step on the way for Poland to obtain funds from the the EU.
