ABOUT BIF'19

There is nothing permanent except change. Things we took for granted, seemingly unchallenged values, such as free international trade, no longer look so self-evident. Even more questions will be raised after another wave of elections, with everyone trying to predict its outcome and impact on political and economic processes in the Baltics, Europe, and globally.

Other upcoming changes may not be as obvious: aging being replaced by longevity, society 5.0 and its effect on societal transformation. Technologies that permeate more and more spheres of our activities. Influence of technologies on financial sector and its future trends. Finally, a question that arises while observing these changes: do the rules change as well? Should we reject it or re-write it?

These issues are but a part of agenda at Baltic Investors Forum 2019, one of the key conferences in the region. Join us and world-renowned speakers, business, academy, political leaders and NGOs to discuss one of the most important questions: what ‘s next?

PARTICIPANTS

The biannual event bringing together more than 500 stakeholders provide a unique platform for leaders from the government, political parties, business, academia and civil society to discuss the most important issues as well as explore cooperation possibilities and growth initiatives in the Baltic area.

Over 50 honorary Consuls of Lithuania and Attache come to each conference and bring together foreign business delegations to meet with the participants.

To keep the focus, the discussions follow SMART approach. They are meaningful and aspiring, yet timely, realistic and proposing concrete actions.

NETWORKING PLATFORM

Networking is a particularly important part of BIF, as it brings together leaders and experts from various sectors. The forum gives a great opportunity to meet active, talented and creative people, and make the most of it.
