The thematic agenda is created in the course of dialogue with our partners, experts and participants. The openness of the Congress guarantees the relevance and significance of its agenda.
The programme of the 15th European Economic Congress will surely include crucial thematic areas and trends that are changing the economy and shaping its outlook in a changing environment which proves difficult for doing business.
