Heart of gmina – interview with Polish wójt

Marcin Zawadka, mayor of the one of the richest gminas in Poland, tells how the hromada can make money by establishing cooperation with entrepreneurs

There were many foreign guests at the 2nd Forum of Amalgamated Hromadas held in Kyiv on 4 December, but the speech of Marcin Zawadka, mayor of a small rural gmina of the Plotsk district of the Mazovian Voivodship in central Poland, appeared to be the most memorable.
