Poland’s top auditor says the country is behind on preparations
to co-host the 2012 European Championship.
The Supreme Chamber of Control says that half of the projects
that it has examined are not on schedule. The chamber says some
projects will probably not be ready before the start of Euro 2012,
which Poland is to co-host with Ukraine.
The head of the chamber, Jacek Jezierski, says the biggest
delays are in the building of roads, train stations, airports and
Poland, an ex-communist country that joined the European Union
in 2004, has seen impressive economic growth in recent years. But
the country is still burdened by aging train stations and other
infrastructure and a near lack of modern highways.
