ABOUT US

The event "STRATEGIC ECONOMIC TALKS" is an annual business event and our goal is to present to the international participants the investment and market trends in Southeast Europe as well as to connect the participants and thus promote new investment, trade and business opportunities.

 

In addition to the official part consisting of panel discussions and keynote speeches, the participants should have enough time for personal opinion exchange and networking,  in a relaxed atmosphere.

 

This year's STRATEGIC ECONOMIC TALKS, which will take place from 30th September - 2nd October 2021 at the Kempinski Adriatic Istria hotel in Croatia, with a  limited number of participants, will focus on the economic relationship between Southeast Europe and the German-speaking countries under the title “SEE & DACH Region Moving Closer Together”.

 

As part of this event, current economic policy issues will be discussed with prominent decision-makers from business and politics, entrepreneurs, executives, high-ranking representatives of selected interest groups from industry  and economic chambers, experts from various economic sectors and media representatives from Southeast Europe and German-speaking countries.
