KPO: the largest transfer since 2004

On 15 April, Poland received almost PLN 27 billion from the first application for payment under the National Recovery Plan (NRP). The amount is the largest one-off transfer received from the European Union  in the 20-year history of our Poland’s membership. Together with the advance payment from the NRP, Poland already has over PLN 48 billion out of nearly PLN 256 billion that we are to receive.
