The European Financial Congress, held every year in Sopot, Poland, consists of pragmatic debates and speeches from experts in the fields of business, politics and academia. These are held at specialist conferences, congresses, sector-related seminars and thematic steering committees and meetings, organised by the Gdansk Institute for Market Economics and the Gdansk School of Banking.
The whole project produces recommendations, and carries out analyses and studies into how these recommendations can be implemented practically.
The main areas of interest are the security and stability of EU financial markets, challenges facing capital market development, finance for major infrastructural projects, and the value-based management of strategic enterprises.
The EIB is an institutional partner in the project, and representation will be provided by President Werner Hoyer, who will speak at the event on 25 June, discussing European initiatives in financing infrastructure.
