In 2019, Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego (BGK) celebrated its 95th birthday.
The history of BGK dates back to 1924 when the President of the Republic of Poland, at the initiative of then Prime Minister and Treasury Minister Wladyslaw Grabski, issued a decree establishing BGK. It was created by a merger of three public banks (the Polish National Bank, the State Reconstruction Bank and the Credit Institution of Malopolska Cities.)
A special reception was held on 13 November at the Polish Embassy in Brussels to mark both the bank's 95th birthday as well as 101 years since Poland regained its Independence.
