Poland is not only the largest, but also one of the fastest developing countries in Central and Eastern Europe. Its large market of 38 million consumers, robust economic growth (6.5 percent last year and more than 5 percent anticipated this year) and other factors make Poland an increasingly popular destination for international investors. In many respects, the Warsaw Stock Exchange has become the largest capital market in Central and Eastern Europe, and Warsaw aspires to become the financial hub of the region. Before that happens, however, a number of conditions must be met.

Whether or not Warsaw stands a chance to become a regional financial hub in the near future will be the subject of the Warsaw-CEE Financial Hub conference that The Warsaw Voice, the International Herald Tribune and the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE) are holding May 29, at the WSE headquarters. The City of Warsaw is the official host of the event. Central government officials, Warsaw authorities, experts in finance, investors and issuers will all be in attendance at the conference, and the speakers and panelists will include Warsaw Mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz; Treasury Minister Aleksander Grad; Ludwik Sobolewski, president of the Warsaw Stock Exchange; Piotr Wojciechowski, head of the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency; and Marcin Herra, chairman of PL2012, a company that coordinates Poland's preparations for the Euro 2012 soccer tournament.

This unique meeting will provide room for debate on both the strengths and weaknesses of Poland's economy, which is now growing rapidly owing to stimuli such as the region's largest pool of EU structural funds and preparations for Euro 2012, an event that will take place in Poland and Ukraine.

During the conference, Polish government officials and the authorities of Warsaw, currently the fastest developing capital in Europe, will discuss their plans and proposals. Issuers, investors and experts, both Polish and foreign, will present their analyses and evaluations, while other conference participants will voice their views in an open debate, attended by both central and local government officials. The conference in Warsaw will become a unique platform for the exchange of news and opinions and a meeting place for business leaders and politicians with ties to both the Polish and international capital markets.
