Morawiecki, who replaces Paweł Szałamacha, will also lead a new Government Economic Committee.
On Wednesday PM Beata Szydlo announced that "Morawiecki will be the development and finance minister as it is necessary to coordinate ministries dealing with economic matters".
She explained that she was introducing "structural changes in the state administration and in the government" in line with the ruling Law and Justice (PiS) programme and plans adopted by her government.
