eec baner

 

The European Economic Congress in Katowice is a three-day series of debates and meetings with the participation of six thousand guests from Poland, Europe and the world. Each year, several hundred panellists take part in nearly one hundred sessions and the Congress is attended by European Commissioners, Prime Ministers andrepresentatives of governments of European states, presidents of the largest enterprises, scientists and practitioners, as well as decision-makers, who exert a real influence on economic and social life.

In this opinion-forming circle – assuming the form of an open public debate – we talk about issues of the greatest importance to the development of Europe. Each year, the events of the Congress are reported on by several hundred journalists. Sessions and debates are moderated by experts in their respective fields and well-known economic publicists.

The major subject areas of this year’s edition of the European Economic Congress in Katowice will include: Europe in view of challenges of global competition; new finances of the European Union – wise investments; the industrial and energy policy; migration and the HR & labour market in Europe; the USA, China and Africa – partners and competitors.

This year in May, it will be exactly ten years since the greatest enlargement of the European Union has taken place in the history of the Community. Ten states, including the countries of Central Europe and the Baltic Republics, accessed the European Union at that time. The assessment of the decade, which also encompassed some phenomena and events that were difficult for the European Union, seems to be definitely positive in the common judgement.

A summary of that period may constitute an interesting topic for a public debate – especially in view of the challenges that the enlarged European Union has to face on the brink of a new decade. It is precisely the current development dilemmas of the European Union that the key sessions of the European Economic Congress 2014 in Katowice will focus on.

In accordance with the experience we have gained from the previous editions, the programme of the Congress will also encompass sessions on such fields of the economy and public life as: finance; the energy industry and fuels; mining and metallurgy; self-government and regional policy; infrastructure, transport and logistics; and construction and property.

It is also planned to hold the next edition of the European Union – China meeting, as well as the second Africa – Central Europe Economic Cooperation Forum and the first Pakistan – Central Europe Economic Cooperation Forum.

The 6th European Economic Congress in Katowice will take place between 7 May and 9 May 2014. The event is organised by PTWP Group.
