Anna Elżbieta Fotyga (pronounced|ˈanːa ɛlˈʒbʲɛta fɔˈtɨɡa, née Kawecka, born January 12, 1957 in Lębork) is a Polish economist, politician, former Member of the European Parliament and former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland, in the successive cabinets of Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz and Jarosław Kaczyński. She is Poland's first female to serve in the role.

Fotyga is a graduate of the University of Gdańsk and the Danish School of Public Administration.

In 1981, and again after 1989, she acted as manager of the Foreign Office of the Solidarity headquarters in Gdańsk, and was a close associate of Lech Kaczyński. From 1997 to 2001, Fotyga served as a foreign affairs adviser under then Prime Minister Jerzy Buzek. Later she was deputy chairman of the Supervisory Board of Social Security (Zakład Ubezpieczen Spolecznych, ZUS) with special expertise concerning International Labour Organization (Międzynarodowa Organizacja Pracy) and the World Bank. From 2002 to 2004, she was deputy mayor of Gdańsk.

Fotyga garnered 25,994 votes (second highest in the region) in the 2004 European parliamentary elections as a candidate of Prawo i Sprawiedliwość in the Pomeranian Voivodship.

On May 9, 2006 Anna Fotyga was appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs of Poland by President Lech Kaczyński, replacing Stefan Meller. The left-wing opposition criticised her office as isolating Poland against Russia and Germany. On September 7, 2007 Fotyga was dismissed from her post but re-appointed again on the same day; in this way the Prime Minister and President avoided her being dismissed by a vote of censure prepared by Platforma Obywatelska three months earlier.

Her take on foreign affairs is congruent with the policy stance of Prawo i Sprawiedliwość, based on the concept of Poland as a strong, independent country, willing to confront Germany or Russia when necessary. She has also pursued a policy of close alignment with the U.S..

With the fall of the Kaczynski administration in 2007, she was succeeded by Radosław Sikorski as foreign minister of Poland.

She is presently Chief of the Office of the President of the Republic of Poland.
