Eurobank EFG was one of the Lead Sponsors of “The 17th Euromoney Central & Eastern European Forum” that was held in Vienna on the 17th - 18th of January 2012.
This year the Forum attracted again important representatives of Governments, Central Banks, International Financial Institutions, businesses,and media with more than 1,100 attendees who had the opportunity to attend panels and workshops primarily related to the future of the region.
Speakers and panellists were focused on ways to support recovery from the global economic crisis, examined the risks and opportunities, as well as the role of the major international and European institutions and local Governments in generating growth.
During the Euromoney Conference, Eurobank EFG organized a Workshop titled: “The role of the public sector in supporting private investments and economic growth”, initiating a discussion of themes and areas in which policy makers may want to enact further structural reforms, particularly during the current period of constrained public finances, such as improving public sector efficiency; reforming local governments and state-owned enterprises; continuing with privatizations, and cutting red tape to attract Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs).
