From Encyklopedia Administracji Publicznej

STATE ECONOMIC COUNCIL ̶ a temporary nationwide representation of economic life planned in the interwar period, which was intended to be established after the Sanation came to power. The works lasted from December 1926 to September 1928, and the organization was coordinated by the state factor, i.e. Kazimierz Bartel as the deputy prime minister and president of the Economic Committee of Ministers. To this end, three permanent committees were created: the Agricultural Opinion Commission, Industrial Opinion Commission and Labor Opinion Commission. The project was presented by Józef Buzek (KOR) in 1927, the concept was developed by a social factor in the opinion giving committees. Modeled on the solutions of the German Economic Council, it was to function until the establishment of the permanent → Supreme Chamber of Commerce referred to in art. 68 of the Constitution of 1921. The discussion on this council as the supreme representative of social and economic interests caused a lively and wide response in the country and abroad (including the USA), however, the project was not implemented.
