    “Currently, we are all at the epicentre of great change. During this year’s edition of EEC Trends, we will recognise at what stage of change the functioning economy is. Among the best experts, we will look at the changes that will shape social, economic, and business processes in the near future. The topics to be tackled during EEC Trends will become the basis for the culminating debate – the 15th European Economic Congress,”

    Wojciech Kuśpik, President of PTWP Group says. 

    Economy 2023

    EEC Trends will be inaugurated by a session entitled ‘Economy 2023: trends, opportunities, risk factors.’ The aim of it will be to find answers to the most important questions concerning, among others, inflation and the Polish zloty, public finance and development measures, taxes and levies. 

    Participants will also address geopolitical issues – discussing factors shaping the conditions for the Polish economy, as well as touching on potential crisis scenarios in the sphere of energy prices, the market and transition. Entering the topic of business and economics in an election year, guests at the opening session will set out what to expect from politicians, as well as discuss what sustainable, cost-effective, modern, and competitive manufacturing should look like under the new rules. The opening session of the event will close with an attempt to answer the question ” How could the pressure of external factors be utilized in accelerating changes in the Polish economy?”.

    A total of 9 debates are planned as part of EEC Trends. Key topics include the transformation of the Polish energy sector in the face of the crisis and changes caused by war, new trade routes, changes in supply chains and planned and ongoing infrastructure investments, trends and technologies in companies’ strategies, investments in sustainable production, and the condition of the Polish capital market vs. investments and innovations in the Polish economy and many others.
