Economic challenges of globalisation



The condition of the energy infrastruc- ture in Poland guarantees stable econo- mic development. This economic sector requires gigantic investment. Therefore, representatives of the energy sector de- bated how to wisely invest in the Polish energy industry. What is the develop- ment strategy that would be best suited for this sector? How is it possible to take into account the risks we know about and those we are not aware of, such as climatic regulations, fuel prices and fu- ture demand levels for electricity? They arrived at the conclusion that the lack of well thought-out strategies may pose a threat to the existence of particular players or even entail the necessity of importing electricity on a considerable scale. This subject was discussed by, among others, Mirosław Bieliński from ENERGA, Da- riusz Mioduski, President of the Board at Kulczyk Holding SA, Maciej Owczarek, Pre- sident of the Board at ENEA SA, and Wojciech Topolnicki, Vice President at PGE Pol- ska Grupa Energetyczna SA, Polska. Joze Mencinger, former Minister of Economy in Slovenia, pointed out that the arrival of foreign investors is connected with a certain risk as they may transfer the problems of their countries onto the countries in which they invest. On the other hand, Jacek Socha, Vice President of PricewaterhouseCo- opers in Poland, when referring to the report presented during the 20th Economic Forum, emphasised that the investment attractiveness of the region is due to the fact that “the crisis in Central and Eastern Europe is not over and that we are facing Marc Coleman, Economics Editor / Current Aairs presente , Newstalk 106, 108 FM, Ireland

considerable problems regarding budget decit, public debt and possible perspec- tives for economic growth. The report clearly shows that Central and Eastern Europe is no longer a monolith and that some of the countries in this region are deeply troubled and their problems may not be over this or next year.”
