Opinions about the Forum:
During the past 15 years, the Krynica Forum has become a very "in" place, where it is worthwhile to be.
The Forum succeeded and one should expect it to be continued as the Eastern European Davos.
Valdas Adamkus - President of the Republic of Lithuania
I am convinced that the upcoming Forum will contribute to the further successful development of cooperation between the countries of Central and Eastern Europe. A good political and economic situation in all the CEE countries is an important matter for all of us. The Forum in Krynica - Zdroj increases our determination to cooperate. It also gives us an excellent opportunity to contribute to the realization of the idea of a free and united Europe.
