Conclusion: Day 1

The new world, energy, digitisation, the EU and the crisis and defending the economy

We talk about the situation on the labour market and the future of the energy sector. We summarize the prospects of the EU and its actual impact on the restart of the economy. We answer questions about what the economic world will look like after the pandemic and whether we will see a digital acceleration.



Conclusion: Day 2

Start-ups, e-commerce, resilient and vulnerable industries, local governments in the time of the pandemic

We answer the questions whether in the era of pandemic start-ups can count on development, whether in trade we are already experiencing a digital revolution and whether financial cuts await us in local government investments. We analyze which industries will gain the most and which ones will lose the most.



Conclusion: Day 3

Infrastructural investments, post-pandemic management, labour market, finances and international trade

We talk about foreign trade, mergers and international acquisitions and ways to maintain liquidity and the future of infrastructure investments. At the „round table” - with representatives of the government, local governments and business - we debate about the chances for a smooth exit from the crisis.
