Business leaders and policy makers will gather together at the 13th European Business Summit to debate the future of Europe. The summit is one of the largest networking platforms with the main aim of bringing together business and politics to help shape the future.
Every year, the Brussels Economic Forum (BEF) brings together top European policymakers, opinion leaders, civil society members and business leaders to discuss economic developments and identify challenges. It is the flagship annual economic event of the European Commission and attracts over 1000 participants making it a key networking opportunity.
This fi-compass event is organised in partnership with the European Commission and is designed to help Member States to further their understanding of how financial instruments can help in their efforts to deliver the objectives of the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD). The seminar will be opened by Phil Hogan, European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development and Pim van Ballekom, Vice-President of the European Investment Bank. Further high-level participation is expected from Italy’s Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies, including Maurizio Martina, Minister of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies.
