A record-breaking number of guests, very high levels of satisfaction among the participants and strong support for the young generation - these are the conclusions drawn from the summary of the eighth edition of the European Economic Congress in Katowice, the largest business event in Central Europe.
There is an increasing number of risks, concerns and unknowns in the European Union proper as well as in its geopolitical environment. However, Europe has maintained many of its advantages - it is necessary to make use of that potential in a skilful manner which would be appropriate to the difficult condition - these are the main conclusions developed during the 8th European Economic Congress.
More freedom in the economy and in the market, more courage while investing, as well as in innovations and during expansion, but also common security and deepening of integration – these are the main conclusions developed during the 7th European Economic Congress.
