GLOBSEC Tatra Summit (5 – 6 October 2018) is a prominent annual conference on the most pressing European political, economic and financial issues. Its goal is simple but ambitious – to help shape the future of Europe. Since its foundation, the Tatra Summit has become an indispensable meeting place for hundreds of government and EU representatives, as well as experts from business and non-governmental sectors. Over the years, it has made a significant contribution to defining the challenges facing Europe and further afield and discussing possible solutions. This year’s 7th edition carries on this tradition in the Tatra Summit’s newly established home in the snow capped Tatra Mountains.
