MEDIA reports on the Forum


The current Forum is of particular importance. It will be the rst organised after the adoption of the Lisbon Treaty by the EU member states. In this context questions about what the Treaty really means for European economic policy take on a new perspective. From this point of view, the participation of the Chairman of the Euro- pean Commission – Jose Manuel Barroso – is of particular importance. It is a symbol. Nobody can have doubts that for these few days the capital city of Europe has moved from Brussels, cluttered with oce buildings, to a more modest and quiet Polish Krynica.


The Chairman of the European Commission – Jose Manuel Barroso, during the 20th Economic Forum in Krynica, an annual meeting of politi- cians and business leaders held in Poland, stated that the Euro was like a sleeping pill in times of global economic crisis for the countries which did not awake a need for reform in themselves.“I do not want to think where we would be now if it hadn’t been for the Euro”.

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

At the beginning of the nineties nobody could dream that the meeting of business tycoons and politicians from Eastern Bloc countries would be mentioned next to the World Economic Forum in Davos. For the countries from the former Eastern Bloc, which are undergoing transformation, and for the Balkans, Krynica has become the most important meeting on the whole year’s agenda.


Tauron, which had its IPO at the Warsaw Stock Exchange, will be included in the WIG20 stock exchange index this year. The index will be subject to other changes this year – declared Ludwik So- bolewski during the 20th Economic Forum.
