What will we discuss?

Western Balkan countries and Turkey are developing and implementing structural reform measures for accession to the EU and its common market. These measures are intended to boost inclusive growth and competitiveness while ensuring fiscal discipline and sustainability. Achieving a balance between aspirations for long-term competitiveness and early stabilization of the economy from the COVID-19 shock is like navigating in unchartered territory.

At this event, we will:

  • Discuss leadership for navigating towards the new normal economies
  • Get insight into the importance of data analysis as support in decision-making processes
  • Think of various options for cross-sectoral collaboration in policy-design.
  • Who is it for?

    With the need for cross-sector collaboration in mind, this event reaches out to leaders who work towards strengthened economic governance and move the economy forward. This includes policy-makers from South East Europe who work in offices of prime ministers, line ministries, public enterprises, and their partners in the business sector, local governments, academia, civil society and development agencies.
