Economic Forum in Krynica

Bank Millennium as partner of the 25th Economic Forum in Krynica

The Krynica Economic Forum is Central Europe’s largest get-together of business people and politicians. It is here that prime ministers, representatives of European governments, EU decision makers, CEOs, experts and economists have been meeting for the past 20 years. Bank Millennium is a partner of this special event.

How to build a strong Europe? Strategies for the future

This is the motto of this year’s anniversary 25th Forum. European cohesion and unity are under threat from decentralising political forces and economic problems. At the same time the Old Continent must face up to increasingly tough global economic competition and geopolitical conflicts. Europe’s strength will be determined first of all by its economic growth and security, this is why the policy of the Old Continent should focus on growing competitiveness, supporting innovation and solidarity in external policy. Is it possible to combine these three directions of activity? How to overcome political instability within the community and along its borders? Will Juncker’s 300 billion-worth plan fill-in the investment gap and provide a sufficient impulse for EU economies? These are the questions the Forum’s participants will strive to answer.
