Guests about the Forum moreAleksander Kwaśniewski, President of the Republic of Poland (1995-2005)
(...) One may already say that the Krynica's Forum has become a rooted, recognized institution, which plays its role in Central and Eastern Europe, and I think even in a broader sense - in Europe. (...) I am convinced that such meetings can be likened to a seed planted in the ground, which bears fruit with time. I believe that this fruit will constitute better communication and understanding, increasingly broader possibilities for cooperation, many new mutual initiatives and specific actions at different levels and platforms. They will be building a good future not only for our own nations, but also for the whole European continent.

The Economic Forum in Krynica has been an important platform for European debate for 25 years. Nowadays, as the European Union is facing numerous challenges and threats- the discussion on the future of the European community and economy is even much more needed.
