[Video Announcement] POLICY ANSWERS Special Panel Session at the Economic Conference in Montenegro 2022

POLICY ANSWERS supported a special panel session entitled ‘EU Initiatives and synergies for a smart and green future’ at the regional Economic Conference Montenegro 2022.

The Chamber of Commerce of Montenegro organized a regional Economic Conference 2022 during 26-28 October 2022, in Budva, Montenegro. This conference has a long tradition. Since 2010, the Chamber of Commerce of Montenegro has been organizing the Economic Conference, which is identified as one of the most important economic events in the WB Region in terms of topics discussed by high-level speakers as well as the opportunities to establish business connections as an added value.

The previous editions of the Conference were attended by 600-850 participants with high-level speakers such as presidents, prime ministers and ministers of the Western Balkans, presidents of chambers of commerce and others. Through a partnership with the German Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations, the conference was included in the Final Declaration of the Heads of the Western Balkans Governments in 2014 in Berlin. This was the occasion when the Conference officially got the status as the most important economic event in the region, attracting attendance of companies from Germany, Austria and other EU countries.

The Economic Conference Montenegro 2021 was held within the topic ‘Economic resetting in the post-Covid 19 period’ as part of the closing program of the Montenegrin presidency over the Central European Initiative. This year the Economic Conference will bring back the focus on the economic perspective of the integration of the Western Balkans into the EU.

The title of the Economic Conference 2022 is Talks about Future
