Europe - unsolved problems, new challenges. Seeking for a leader of change
First panel discussion was focused on the topic „Europe – unsolved problems, New challenges. Seeking for a leader of change”, which concerned a meaning of leadership and problems which future leaders will have to face with. Guests of 9th Economic Forum of Young Leaders tried to convince participants not to be afraid of proposing changes, to be active because there are plenty of problems which have to be solved.
Another challenge for future European elites is strengthen of the external policy and EU security policy because it’s still on the stage of planning. Panelists paid a lot of attention on an issue of European integration, which is often underestimated. In their mind we should focus on deepening and spreading that value because in times of competition with giants like China or India, Europe need to be integrated.
Problem of Ukrainian-Russian conflict also was mentioned. Participants provided questions about solutions.

From family business to global success
The guest who was invited for the last panel session of the first day of Economic Forum of Young Leaders was president of FAKRO company – Ryszard Florek.
The FAKRO company produces and sells roof windows. The company started its activity in Nowy Sącz. The main topic of Ryszard Florek presentation was the problem of deficiency of appropriate climate for business development in Poland. Based on his own experience in cooperation with entrepreneurs of different nations he noticed that Poles the most often think about themselves at first and in the second place about good of the community. And according to him this is the biggest obstacle of economic development of our country. The next problem which he was talking about were the negative relationships among people based very often of feeling of envy. This thing obstructs many times human potential and development. Very often the entrepreneurs are perceived in negative way by the society. Unfortunately this kind of situation takes place in Poland and it should be changed.
