WARSAW — Poland's new Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki is to outline his foreign and home policy goals, a day after he was sworn in and tasked with boosting the economy and Poland's image abroad.

Morawiecki, who will deliver a policy speech later yesterday, succeeds Beata Szydlo who for over two years led the conservative government of the Law and Justice party. He heads the same team as Szydlo did.

During the ceremony he said he will focus on improving the living standards of ordinary Poles but also on preserving national values and cultural heritages.

A vote of support for the government is scheduled for Wednesday and the team is expected to win it, given the ruling party's majority in parliament.
