European Dilemmas. Central Europe: An Active Partner or a Passive Spectator? is the motto of this year's 18th Economic Forum to be held in the southeastern Polish mountain resort of Krynica Sept. 10-13.

The main aim of this annual event is to promote dialogue between old and new Europe and "build a climate conducive to the development of political and economic cooperation" between European Union countries and their non-EU neighbors.

Organized by a Polish nongovernmental organization known as the Eastern Institute, the Economic Forum has an established reputation as a high-profile meeting of politicians, businesspeople, scientists and media leaders from Central and Eastern Europe and other countries. This year forum participants will discuss issues such as ways of building "a Europe of security and solidarity," and how to turn Europe into the most competitive economy in the world.

Last year's forum brought together 2,000 participants from 60 countries.

The agenda of this year's meeting includes plenary sessions and 130 or so panel discussions divided into 10 themes, including fuel and energy; security; regional policy and globalization; the EU's relations with its neighbors; the new economy; and science and culture.

For entrepreneurs attending the forum, the Krynica meeting is an opportunity to showcase their companies and find business partners. Every year the event includes a Forum of Regions, or a meeting of local and regional government leaders from Central and Eastern Europe.

In an event accompanying this year's Economic Forum, an Investment Forum will be held in nearby Tarnów that will attract selected investors from Poland and other Central and Eastern European countries as well as decision-makers responsible for privatization in Central Europe. The meeting will attempt to sum up the results of economic transformation in Central and Eastern Europe and outline privatization policy guidelines for the coming years.

Every year, special awards are granted at a ceremony during the forum to outstanding individuals, companies and institutions from Central and Eastern Europe for their work and achievements in the previous calendar year.

The Warsaw Voice is a media patron of the Krynica Economic Forum.
