The Economist: Fifth EU-Southeast Europe Summit
4 and 5 October 2016, Hofburg Imperial Palace and Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKO), Vienna, Austria
Henley & Partners is proud to participate at the Economist Events 5th EU-Southeast Europe Summit, taking place in Vienna, Austria.
Henley & Partners’ Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Juerg P. Steffen will be speaking on Attracting Global Citizens through Investment Migration Programs on Wednesday, 5 October 2016.
European citizens are paying close attention to the leadership at the helm of the European Union as they tackle the migrant crisis. The EU member states now have an opportunity to strengthen their collaboration and solve the refugee question with consistency.
A unique opportunity has arisen to boost the economy and competitiveness as the European Investment Plan aims to unlock public and private investments in the real economy of at least EUR 315 billion over the next two years which will - hopefully - break the vicious cycle of continued low growth and high unemployment in Europe.
- Can the plan live up to Europe’s expectations?
On Europe’s economic forefront, we are witnessing EU member states breaking away from economic stagnation and emerging stronger from the crisis. Following Ireland and Portugal, Cyprus intends to be the third Eurozone country to leave the international bailout programme.
- What is the outlook for the Balkans?
