The programme of the 15th European Economic Congress did not miss the most important, up-to-date trends of the present day that determine the development prospects of the economy, its social and geopolitical environment.
Challenges related to the environmental and climate impact of the economy, the green transformation of energy and industry, war in Europe and the clash of global powers, but also the effects of pandemics, the raw materials and energy crisis.
All of these were the content of events and discussions - in the campaign preceding EEC and in the culminating debate in Katowice in April. Follow us for exclusive interviews, in-depth texts, reports and analyses.
The EEC creates an open and representative platform for the discussion of a wide spectrum of economic issues, important key trends and the phenomena that shape our nearest future.See the full agenda
