In a post-Covid world, competitiveness will be more important than ever. In the first of our CEE Forward series of live panels, the heads of three of the region’s biggest investors – Erste Group, the EBRD and Mid Europa Partners – discussed how Central and Eastern Europe can take advantage of a changing global environment.
Key topics include:
• How CEE can build on its tech strength to develop the knowledge economy
• The EU Recovery Fund, building back better and sustainability challenges
• Convergence 2.0: achieving deeper political and cultural integration with western Europe
• CEE’s image problem: the gap between perception and reality
