Why Attend the Event?
Join us in Nicosia, Cyprus for the EBRD's 26th Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors and Business Forum which will take place on the 9-11 May 2017.
You will learn how the world’s most successful companies are defining and changing the investment landscape, get valuable information about investment opportunities and connect with old business contacts and make new ones through our networking and social events.
We expect to welcome some 2,000 participants from around the globe, including high-level government officials, financial and corporate executives, entrepreneurs from the region, representatives of civil society, as well as a strong media presence.
The overall theme of the Business Forum will be Targeting Green and Inclusive Growth – Meeting Regional and Global Challenges. The Forum will provide an opportunity to reflect on what has been achieved, and on the many economic, social and political issues now facing our region.
The Business Forum will be presented in a new format with discussions reflecting on the six re-defined qualitiesof transition:
Towards a market structure that ensures competition, with productive firms generating value, and the incentive for firms to compete and advance.
Towards a resilient market economy that supports growth and avoids excessive volatility and lasting economic reversals; towards policy predictability and sustainability in financial and economic structures.
In the spirit of the Bank’s Green Economy Transition (GET) approach, the EBRD will endeavour to reduce the environmental impact of the upcoming Annual Meeting & Business Forum in Nicosia, Cyprus in 2017. Find out more about our initiative.
