Europe - the next step! Digitalization, decarbonization and diversification as the cornerstones of a new economic strategy

Europe is undergoing a major transformation. The economic rise of Central and Eastern Europe and Russia’s war on Ukraine are shifting the key pillars on which the European Union has operated for decades. The region's emerging economies are benefiting from this, while also confidently questioning common European values and certainties.
At the same time, the climate crisis and questions of economic resilience are challenging outdated structures. How does Europe manage the balancing act between environmental protection and maintaining its industrial competitiveness? Where does the continent position itself in the global game of markets and powers? And how will the balance of power shift within the EU?

On 3 and 4 October 2024, the AHK Europe Conference of the German Chambers of Commerce Abroad (AHK) will explore these and other questions. More than 200 top representatives from politics, business and academia are expected to attend the conference to discuss the transformation of the European economy. High-profile experts will emphasize topics such as industrial competitiveness, the climate crisis and European resilience.

During the two-day conference, participants will engage with the following issues:

  • Europe in a period of complex transformation
  • Economic recovery in Central and Eastern Europe
  • The war in Ukraine is changing the European dynamics
  • Climate crisis and economic resilience
  • The balance between environmental protection and keeping regional industries competitive
  • Where does the continent stand in the global game of markets and powers?
  • How will the dynamics within the EU change?
