WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland will continue fighting tax evasion, allowing the government to keep public debt in check and finance its public spending agenda, Prime Minister-designate Mateusz Morawiecki said on Friday.

He also told the Catholic Trwam television that value added tax revenue would most likely increase by 30 billion zlotys (£6.28 billion) this year and the nominal increase in public debt in 2017 would be lowest in more than two decades.

"We are taking money away from mafias and tax criminals and giving it to the people," Morawiecki said.
