Deputy Minister Konrad Szymański attends LSE Polish Economic Forum in London
“Europe needs to adapt and to reform. The new European consensus should be based on the development of the single market, on a defence policy pursued in consultation with NATO, on a new migration policy that rules out relocations and focuses on external aspects, and maybe on a reformed industry policy. Europe needs to prove once again that it is the key to European prosperity and security,” said Deputy Minister Konrad Szymański at the 8th edition of the London School of Economics Polish Economic Forum.
Deputy chief of Polish diplomacy Konrad Szymański took part in a discussion panel titled “Quo vadis Europe?,” which was dedicated to Brexit’s impact on Poland and on the Poles, and, in a broader perspective, to the future of Europe and the European Union, mainly in the context of the forthcoming European Parliament elections. In Deputy Minister Szymański’s view, the debate on the EU reform should start with a diagnosis of current problems, and the solutions to be proposed should be most importantly realistic.
The London School of Economics Polish Economic Forum is the largest conference on Poland that is held out of Poland. The Forum brought together more than 700 Polish students of the best British universities and officials from business and politics. The event is organized by the London School of Economics Polish Business Society, an association which consists of Polish students of the London School of Economics.
