Gattaz: We need a new global order, not a global mess

"In a world undergoing profound changes, companies are a crucial factor of adaptation while ensuring stability. My main task as President of BusinessEurope will be to make sure that uncertainties we are facing lead to a new global order rather than to a global mess", Pierre Gattaz said at the opening gala of the European Forum for New Ideas (EFNI). The 8th edition of this forum is taking place from 26 to 28 September in Sopot, Poland, and has been organised since 2011 by the Polish Confederation Lewiatan in cooperation with BusinessEurope. The event, which gathers over a thousand participants – representatives of the world of business, science, culture and administration, Polish and European alike, is dedicated to global trends, new ideas and the future of Europe. During his speech, President Gattaz highlighted that “the next years will be decisive. Free movement of goods, services, capital and people is an absolute 'must' to build a strong Europe". And to end up with an improved global trade system, "we will need to deepen existing partnerships and develop new ones, especially in our neighbourhood”, he concluded. Photo copyright: K.RAINKA
