European integration in the face of a security crisis
5th European Financial Congress
European Financial Congress in Sopot from 22 to 24 June 2015
We are happy to announce that the 5th European Financial Congress to be held in Sopot, Poland, on June 22-24, 2015 under the Honorary Patronage of Donald Tusk, President of the European Council. The main theme of this year’s Congress is: European integration in the face of a security crisis.
The 5th European Financial Congress in Sopot takes place during a special time for Europe, a time when after over twenty years geopolitics made its way back to economy. It is a moment when efforts taken in the particular countries and in the entire European Union can test the European solidarity and integration in the face of the security crisis we observe and experience. Will the previously worked out mechanisms and procedures, as well as the stability, innovation and solidarity within the European Union suffice vis-à-vis the risks which we have to face in the 21st century’s second decade? Having this in mind the opening debate of the Congress will focus on fixing the Eurozone, as well as on opportunities and challenges connected with the European Capital Markets Union and Energy Union.
During the plenary session at the Congress opening, Mr Marek Belka, President of the National Bank of Poland will deliver a keynote speech on Moral hazard on the financial markets.
The Congress’ Honorary Committee is chaired by Mr Lech Wałęsa and its Programme Board is chaired by Mr Jan Krzysztof Bielecki.
The debates during the second and third days of the Congress will cover the following subject areas:
- Security and development of the financial markets in the EU,
- Challenges for the development of the capital market,
- Value-based management of enterprises,
- Sustainable financing of infrastructure.
The Congress will end with the announcing of Recommendations followed by an Oxford-Style debate titled “Without immigration Europe will fall”. The Recommendations announced at the Congress closing ceremony allow not only to point out the most up-to-date challenges faced by the modern economy, but also to propose ways of resolving them. The Oxford-Style debate is an initiative of the EFC Academy members, involving students from Poland, Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Spain and Ukraine.</article>
