INSME President Sergio Arzeni has attended the 30th Economic Forum, held in Karpacz, Poland, between September 7th and 9th. The conference saw 4,350 guests from dozens of countries, who had a chance to participate in over 400 events – discussion panels, debates and plenary sessions. The theme of this year’s Economic Forum was “Europe in Search of Leadership”: key representatives of politics, business and science from the Central and Eastern European region debated over the future of the European Community and changes in Europe forced by the pandemic. Many debates focused also on the second big challenge of the future next to the pandemic – global warming and the energy transition it entails.
President Arzeni was invited as a speaker at the panel “Small and Medium-sized Enterprises in the Face of the Challenges of the 21st Century”, which analysed the significant constraints, failures and cost rises which have affected the SME sector over the course of the past year. The panel also discussed which policies could better stimulate entrepreneurial culture, as aid programmes have proven not sufficient.
