ΛΕΠΤΟΜΕΡΕΙΕΣ ΕΚΔΗΛΩΣΗΣ

The Economic Ideas Forum (EIF) is a high-level, award-winning, interactive conference on the most pressing issues facing the economy. After successful past Forums held in Brussels, Bratislava, Helsinki, Dublin, London, Madrid and Paris, our 2019 stop is Nicosia!

Cyprus, which successfully ended its financial assistance programme in 2016, is now one of the fastest growing economies in the Eurozone. As a long-established hub linking Europe with the wider world, Cyprus is also ideally placed to assist in cultivating growth, innovation and the digital economy in its MENA neighbourhood.

Be it the technicalities of Cyprus’s economic success story, the welfare of the middle class, energy security and digital innovation in the MENA region and beyond, #EIF19 will be the go-to conference for all connoisseurs interested in novel economic thought. Make sure you reserve your seat and don’t miss out on our high-level speakers and dynamic panels!

    Former Prime Minister of Malta

    Lawrence Gonzi is a Maltese statesman and lawyer, who served in various critical roles in Maltese politics. Gonzi was Prime Minister of Malta (2004–2013) and leader of the Nationalist Party. He also served as speaker of the House, Minister of Social Policy and as a Deputy Prime Minister. He led the island through the delicate first years of EU membership. He piloted crucial economic and political reforms, spearheaded Malta’s adoption of the euro, and the entry into force of the Schengen agreement. In international diplomacy, Gonzi was lauded for his role in the Libyan Revolution, breaking Malta’s longstanding relationship with the Gaddafi regime.

GCI in cooperation with: Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies

Hi, we are the Wilfried Martens Centre for European Studies, the official think tank of the European People’s Party. Through our work, we inspire ideas for action and shape responses to European challenges. During testing times for Europe, we believe these challenges deserve the best of our intellectual efforts and that is why we aim to be a leading and innovative catalyst of centre-right ideas and thinking. The Martens Centre analyses and contributes to the debate on EU policy that is relevant for policymakers, experts and the broader European public. Working closely with national partners allows the Centre to bring the European debate closer to those to whom it matters most: the people. The numerous activities it promotes are a wonderful environment for us all to continue our discussion on the future of Europe. 20 Rue du Commerce 1000 Brussels, Belgium
