Approximately 600 speakers from 35 countries will participate in the fifth edition of the Delphi Economic Forum that will take place in the historic town of Delphi, central Greece, during March 5-8.
Under the theme, “Action with Vision”, the four-day event, will once again, host prominent politicians, world-class academics, entrepreneurs and scientists. For four days, they will be cross-talking and sharing opinions, insight, innovative ideas, their vision for the future and the developments on a regional and global level.
“We have a new Greek government and a new European Commission, so we thought that the forum’s central theme should work as an ‘umbrella’ and cover a wide-range of issues in 80 sessions,” Delphi Economic Forum President Symeon Tsomokos told reporters during a press conference on Wednesday.
The keynote speeches, conversations, panels and events of the Delphi Economic Forum 2020 will unfold under five thematic pillars:
● Power shifts and geopolitics – Developments in the S.E. Mediterranean,
● The future of the European Union and the priorities of the new Commission,
● Disruptions and future trends,
● Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and global challenges,
● Greece: Structural reforms, growth and investments.
Other issues to be discussed during the forum include shipping, tourism, culture and AI.
Among the forum’s speakers are Margaritis Schinas, Vice-President of the European Commission, Tao Zhang, Deputy Managing Director, IMF; Nicholas Negroponte, Founder, MIT Media Lab; Andrea Enria, Chair of the Supervisory Board, ECB; Alan Wolff, Deputy Director General, World Trade Organization; Klaus Regling, Managing Director, European Stability Mechanism and Jean-Claude Trichet, Former President, European Central Bank.
