Public media in many countries operate quite different from how it looked 10 or 20 years ago.

Forum is a truly unique event, with its timing and location. Whole Polish business elite meets there, CEO’s and representatives of the companies from other CEE’s countries. However, there are people from other parts of Europe as well, such as French businessmen, for instance. And in Krynica, these people all meet in the space of one square kilometer, more or less. Similar summits are organized in Katowice or Sopot, but in these cities guests scatter around. Here, in Krynica, it’s all revolving around one pedestrian avenue. As I said: absolutely unique place.

    This lavish multilingualism was on Johnson’s mind at a conference last week in Krynica, just inside Poland near the border with Slovakia. The annual gathering (billed as “the Davos of the east”) is a kind of showcase for today’s Europe. The conference, though heavily Polish in attendance, is officially trilingual (English and Russian materials are available everywhere), and even more multilingual in its attendees. A typical panel featured two Hungarians, one Pole, one Czech, one German and one American.

    Three thousands participants – from Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, as well as from Lithuania and Germany and, what is a novelty, also from India and China - once again came to measure the pulse of Central and Eastern Europe.

    Poland and other Baltic countries might serve as a model for the crisis-ridden South Europe. In the discussion on the indebited European South, the positive example of Poland and other CEE countries is unfairly passed over. It surprises, especially considering the fact that those countries might serve as a model for others and on the other hand, they may be natural allies for the raising concern Southern European countries.
