Global e-Mobility Forum takes place in Warsaw

On Thursday, Poland’s PM Mateusz Morawiecki opened the Global e-Mobility Forum, an event aimed at developing electromobility.

At the opening gala on Thursday morning, PM Mateusz Morawiecki said that electromobility remains a priority for Poland, and the country is a leader in many of its areas.

The Global e-Mobility Forum is a high-level discussion panel aimed at developing electromobility for governments, international organisations, and companies.

The meeting was announced at last year’s COP24, 2018 United Nations Climate Change Conference which took place in Katowice, southern Poland. Representatives of over 40 states, who signed the "Driving Change Together — Katowice Partnership for Electromobility" declaration had been invited to the event.

The panel is organised as round table talks, workshops, and working group sittings, all about the future development of e-mobility, its financing, and the challenges facing the transportation revolution.

According to PM Morawiecki, Poland is a pioneer in supporting the industry, and named recently introduced tax deductions and last years’ bill on electromobility and alternative fuels.

The PM also said that Poland’s vehicle industry has sufficient grounds for future electric development, marking that Poland is the largest manufacturer and exporter of electric busses in the EU.
