State aid down by 11% in 2011


The total value of state aid awarded by Polish public-sector institutions to companies in the course of 2011 amounted to PLN 21.5bn (approx. €5.2bn), according to official figures released by the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection (UOKiK). This represents a decline of 10.8% compared with 2010. The 2010 figure was boosted by a peak of EU tenders, however.

As in the period 2005-2010, the most frequent form of state aid were tax breaks and grants (97.3%). The transport sector was the biggest individual recipient, with over PLN 4bn (€970m) in state aid. Of this, about 70% was awarded to railway companies. Large firms accounted for more than 50% of total aid, led by PKP Intercity and PGE, the energy group.

The biggest amounts of state aid were granted by the State Fund for the Rehabilitation of the Disabled Persons (PFRON) and the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFOSiGW).
