The Economic Forum which will be held for the 29th time in the Polish town Krynica- Zdrój is one of the biggest economic events in Central and Eastern Europe, and is also known as the ”Eastern Davos.”
Over two thousand participants from Europe and around the world will be present at the Forum, and around 200 panels will cover a wide range of topics, including the future of the EU, migrations, international security, global political and trade relations, digital industry, new communication tools and cutting-edge technologies.
Institute for Development and International Relations (IRMO) is a partner organization of this year’s edition and representatives of IRMO will contribute to work of several panels.
As suggested by this year’s leading theme “Europe of Tomorrow. ‘Strong’ Meaning What?”, the conference will focus on how the Old Continent will cope in the next decade and on strategies that should guide the European governments in the global system. Europe is currently burdened with many problems, above all Brexit. On the other hand, in the CEE region, cooperation flourishes within frameworks like the Visegrad Group and the Three Seas Initiative.
