Tags: European Economic Forum

The general theme of this year's Forum was outsourcing, and the slogan: "Modern Business Services and their Influence on the Investment Attractiveness of Polish Regions" We had the opportunity to get to know a variety of opinions concerning the influence of the BPO industry on our region's economy, in the context of its many perspectives, such as staff, office space, development in a global context and the functioning of the increasingly popular call and contact centres. The dialogue was conducted with the participation of many authorities from the BPO industry, not only in Poland, but globally. Those who graced the 6th EEF with their presence included: Roman Lubaczewski, Stephan Fricke, Armand Angeli, Konstyantyn Yakovchuk-Besarab and Jim Costello. The lively discussion proved once again that the outsourcing industry is very strong in Łódzkie, and has a lot to offer.

The 6th European Economic Forum was, as we have come to expect, an occasion to meet many outstanding personalities from the economic world. The EEF was officially inaugurated by the Marshall of Łódzkie Region, Witold Stępień. He then handed over to Prof. Marek Belka, head of the National Bank of Poland, who gave a lecture on the appropriateness of introducing the Euro in Poland Another Honorary Guest of the Forum was Prof. Grzegorz W. Kołodko, whose appearance became an introduction to the session on outsourcing in the world, and after which the Professor dedicated his latest publication "Whither the World?" to the Forum's participants. The Forum was summed up by a lecture given by MEP Jacek Saryusz Wolski, concentrating on the European Union actions presented, which were taken with the aim of minimising the effects of the financial crisis in Europe. This year's Forum was compered by the well known political journalist, Maciej Orłoś.

In the technical part of the meeting, the Forum's organiser - the Department of Entrepreneurship at the Marshall's Office of Łódzkie Region - concentrated on those industries which are to be considered priorities according to the LORIS 2030 Regional Innovation Strategy, including innovative textiles and the fashion industry; innovative agriculture and food processing; medicines, pharmacy and cosmetics; power production including renewable energy sources; IT and advanced construction materials. There were branch salons dedicated to these specialisations, and they enjoyed great interest among the participants at the Forum.

Another highly important element of the 6th EEF were meetings including, foreign delegations, representatives of business and the business environment, including from Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Georgia and Kazakhstan. The central point of these events was the Polish-Romanian Economic Summit with the participation of the Vice Ministers of Agriculture from both countries, the Romanian Ambassador and business representatives.

During the Forum, a wide range of lucrative accords and declarations were signed, including an agreement between Łódzkie Regional Science and Technology Park and the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development regarding the reconstruction of the Park, which will enable one of Poland's most important centres of entrepreneurship and innovation to be created in this place, and an understanding concerning collaboration between the local authorities and Łódź Urban Railways.
