or lost... Transparency is a very weak side of the EU, however this is characteristic to every bureaucratic regime.
canada-poland.com/files/EUStructuralFundsInfoForCompanies.pdfPoland's National Convergence Strategy for 2007-2013. Under the current convergence
policy, 85.5 billion Euro has been earmarked for Poland; which includes 67.3 billion Euro from the EU budget - the remaining 18.2 billion will come from the Polish state budget
Complete non-issue in my opinion.
It is easy to take a very narrow view with a limited amount of information.
Poland has gained so much via EU Membership, its ridiculous to even consider Poland outside of the European Union.
Is there any viable alternative for Poland?
(FYI, I never met a Polish person in my entire life before November 11 2004, much less heard their language)
If Poland were a net contributor rather than a benefactor, such as Germany or Sweden, there may be an issue for debate. People who consider Ireland or Poland outside of the European Union have failed to ever give a solid rational reason why this should occur.
Its true that there is a lot of bureaucracy in the EU, and not are not terribly efficient.
However, local governments are even more inefficient.
I would be in favour of reform, equally I am certain that any country planning a future outside of the EU, without a valuable natural resource such as oil, may as well go join Iceland and prepare for catastrophe.
