Problems of Polish emigration are being addressed during a conference in the attendance of experts and organised in Warsaw by the "Wspólnota Polska" Association.
A report released by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs quotes as many as 1.5 million Poles who have emigrated for labour abroad.
Jan Borkowski, the vice-minister of foreign affairs, has commented, saying that work in the EU has its upsides, yet the emigration of specialist tradesmen and manual construction workers has meant that Poland is suffering from a lack of such a workforce.
The economy may have suffered, but families are also at risk, especially children, who may only see their parents once a month, but usually for extended periods of time in some cases.
Borkowski added that it is important for ex-pats to return home and work in Poland.
Additionally Janusz Grzyb, from the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy, insists that labour conditions are improving in the country. (jb)
