The speakers at Vienna Economic Talks - Belgrade Meeting 2017 are personalities who represent a broad spectrum of business and public life corporations, institutions and organizations not only in Europe, but worldwide, and who hold themselves responsible for the better economic development of the whole region and shared European future.

Only the fact, that Vienna Economic Talks - Belgrade Meeting 2017 is under the Patronage of Jean-Claude Junker, President of the European Commission, speaks for the role of Serbia in terms of EU integration process and economic cooperation for the whole region and Vienna Economic Forum is very thankful for the great support of the European Union Delegation in Belgrade in realising Vienna Economic Talks - Belgrade Meeting 2017.

 Vienna Economic Forum is very proud that Vienna Economic Talks - Belgrade Meeting 2017 is organised together with Serbian Association of Economists and with the big support of Serbian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Vienna Economic Talks - Belgrade Meeting 2017 focuses on 3 themes: the Responsibility to be Regionally Connected, the need to boost the Regional Cooperation on a European Path, and the Regional Investment Chances with particular focus on the good economic development of Serbia. More than 200 participants from 19 countries have registered.

It is a special goal of Vienna Economic Talks - Belgrade Meeting 2017 to emphasize the importance of regional economic cooperation, which could mean consolidation of the whole region for the common European path, and to insist on the big responsibility regional leaders have in demand.
