Serhat TUNAR –TDO- An increasing number of Polish workers are returning home from the U.K. and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki hopes the trend continues, to help boost a growing local economy.
"More and more are coming back, and we're very happy with that," Morawiecki told the BBC on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Citing low Polish unemployment and one of the EU's strongest GDP growth levels, he said: "I would hope that many, many Poles would come back to Poland; so give us our people back."
The U.K. government says there are close to 1 million Polish nationals living in Britain.
Morawiecki said that Poles wanting to stay on in Britain after the U.K. leaves the EU should not be penalized. "For us it's extremely important, that for those who want to stay, to make sure all the social security system and conditions will stay as they are."
The Polish leader warned that a "default no-deal Brexit" would damage the U.K., Poland and the EU.
