Greek and international experts exchanged analysis and opinions on the key challenges for Greece and Southeast Europe, aiming to identify the main global trends, assess their implications and review the resulting challenges and policy options confronting decision-makers of the wider Eastern Mediterranean Region.
The discussions also focused on Greece’s need for structural reforms and new leadership strategies, which could result in a new model of governance.
More than 250 leading personalities attended the forum, focused on 41 issues and explored solutions to today’s most pressing policy challenges, such as the migration problem, industrial policies, investments in the region, restoring trust in Democracy, the dynamics of entrepreneurship (creating jobs and promoting growth), the future of the European Union, the impact of Brexit and the new globalization.
It offered a mixture of public sessions and restricted workshops, where scholars, members and stakeholders could bring crucial topics to an audience of decision makers.
The forum took place with the participation of senior EU officials and international organizations, major think-tanks, current and former ministers, former prime ministers and very important representatives of domestic and international academic community.
