CES was proud to host the fourth Economic Ideas Forum, which was held in Helsinki during the 6th and 7th of June 2013 under the Patronage of Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen. This yearly conference brought together high level economic experts, Ministers of Economy, EU Commissioners, EU Prime Ministers, as well as CEOs of companies from around the world and enterprise representatives. The Forums are a perfect opportunity to present new ideas and offer economic solutions for overcoming issues of global importance and for improving the EU economy. This year's Forum tackled the hottest topics on the economic agenda: the role and continued relevance of the EU in the global economy, new sources of growth, how to deal with unemployment, banking and financial regulation, green economy and sustainability. Every year, over 250 participants attend this high level, interactive conference; previous Forums have been successfully held in Madrid (2010), London (2011) and Dublin (2012) and have received a wide international media coverage. The final programme of the event, profiles of speakers, panel reports and media coverage can all be found below.
