We took part in the June session of the European Economic Congress online

From May to September 2020, the European Economic Congress – the largest economic meeting of Central Europe – is held. This year, due to the coronavirus epidemic, some of its events are being held online.

Since May this year, the Congress has been attended by: attorney-at-law Aleksandra Urbanowska-Bohun and attorney-at-law Aneta Fornalik, who specialise in their daily practice, e.g. in local government law, and are responsible for providing legal services to clients from the public finance sector entities, including above all local governments.

The topics of the Congress are mainly focused on the economic effects of the coronavirus epidemic.

The next part of the online session took place from 22-24 June 2020.

First panel on 22 June 2020: “The art of unfreezing. Business, administration, market” began with an interview with Minister of Development Jadwiga Emilewicz. It concerned the summarisation of the first stage of the anti-crisis shields. In the panel: “International trade, export, expansion” participants discussed the unfreezing of trade on a global and local scale. The session entitled “International trade, export, expansion” was also interesting: “Public finances in the face of challenges, needs and limitations. Restructuring under pressure.” Finance Minister Tadeusz Kościński pointed out that the transfers of public funds to the public will not be reduced and the money must go to the economy which should not be “cooled down”. It is also necessary to revise the budget to give a new impetus to the economy. The further part of the discussion concerned restructuring and bankruptcy proceedings against entrepreneurs, taking into account the legal solutions proposed in Shield 4.0.

The main topic of the discussion panels on 23 June 2020 were new technologies: business in a cloud, digital transformation of industry, telecommunications infrastructure and 5G. Understanding the problems arising from the application of new technologies allows us to better advise our Clients, for example in the assessment of planning conditions for solutions using 5G infrastructure.

On the third day of the Congress we discussed, among others, industry in Poland and Europe and the economic and social costs of transformation processes in traditional industrial regions. The last debate was attended by Professor Jerzy Buzek, Member of the European Parliament, President of the European Parliament in the years 2009-2012, Prime Minister in the years 1997-2001, President of the Council of the European Economic Congress, who pointed to the problem of Poland’s exit from coal, the necessary energy transformation and distribution of EU funds.

We would like to thank all the participants for their extremely inspiring presentations.
