What will your country contribute to the EU?

Poland is a rich country, in terms of its culture and traditions. We represent a new market for goods and services from Europe, and bring to the EU a highly qualified workforce.

What is your biggest hope?

I am convinced that entry into the EU will give new momentum to the Polish economy. It is a big opportunity.

What is your biggest fear?

I am afraid that this opportunity could be missed.

Which countries in Europe have you visited?

I know Germany well.

What do you admire about the existing EU?

I love the variety of cultures that the EU contains.

Will you consider emigrating?

Yes. I think our future involves adaptation to new circumstances. We have to be open-minded and to prepare for new challenges.

How do you think your life will change after your country joins the EU?

I cannot foresee the changes that EU entry will bring to my life, but it is an experience I do not want to miss.
