The north-central city of Toruń is preparing to host its 17th Economic Forum Feb. 11-12. This year's event is dedicated to the European Union's Eastern Partnership initiative.

Conference participants will discuss the EU's policies on countries beyond Poland's eastern border and ways of promoting the idea of European integration in that region.

Organized by the Integration and Cooperation Association, the Toruń Economic Forum is a key annual business event in Poland. It attracts officials including prime ministers, ministers, EU commissioners and high-ranking European Commission officials, in addition to heads of government agencies and chief executive officers from stock exchange-listed banks and companies. Participants also include local government officials and academics, both Polish and foreign.

This year's forum will focus on issues associated with political, economic and social changes in Eastern Europe and on Poland's experience in relations with countries beyond its eastern border. Conference participants will also discuss the future of the Central and Eastern European energy sector, the state of Poland's strategic reserves, and the role of banks in overcoming the global economic crisis. In addition to economic issues, social problems will be part of the agenda, including the problem of nation states in the context of European integration and the role of women in a changing world.

Interest in Eastern European markets has increased steadily in recent years. According to the Integration and Cooperation Association, Poland has evolved from a transit country into a bridge linking EU countries with former Soviet republics. Many businessmen from Poland and other EU countries have been successfully doing business on markets east of Poland. These markets have gained special importance at this time of economic crisis, especially in the context of export support policies.

Conference participants will discuss specific cases of business done on Eastern European markets by Polish companies with a view to helping investors avoid mistakes in relations with their eastern partners. Additionally, participants will exchange information about specific sectors and investment opportunities and talk about ways of finding credible business partners and promoting one's products abroad.

An investment fair will accompany the forum, providing an opportunity to promote Polish companies doing business on Eastern European markets.
