The Economic Forum is the largest political and economic conference in Central and Eastern Europe. Discussions concern security, prospects for economic development, contemporary challenges and overcoming crises. Wroclaw is once again a partner of the event.

As the capital of the region, Wroclaw operates like a well-oiled economic machine. Never before have there been so many initiatives, companies, direct investments, startups, investment projects in Wroclaw, in the Wroclaw Agglomeration.  We want to build together with local governments, with the world of science, with NGOs a strong capital and a strong province. That's why here in Karpacz we will also ask about KPO money or talk about the lost finances of local governments

Economic Forum in Karpacz the largest political and economic conference in Central and Eastern Europe.

In recent years, with the participation of the Wroclaw Agglomeration Development Agency, more than 260 FDI ( foreign direct investment) projects have been carried out, thanks to which more than 130,000 new jobs have been created in the agglomeration. In 2023, another 15 investors trusted us, which brought another 5500 jobs.

Wroclaw is hosting 4 panel discussions:

  • A healthy city is a smart city
  • Digital co-creation as a model for building a flexible urban strategy
  • New or old values? Young people about the ethos of scientific people
  • The role of the international community in the reconstruction of Ukraine

Dynamic digitalization is changing the world and people. It enables rapid development of technology and improves communication. Therefore, the ICT industry is now a driving force for the economy. It affects not only all business sectors, but also the future of cities. The Wroclaw agglomeration is a place where it is developing exceptionally fast, so we have something to talk about
