The beginnings of the European Financial Congress stemmed from an urgent need to discuss solutions to the financial crisis of late 2010s and prevent similar developments in the future. In the following years, the EFC focused on debating the innovative and safe future of the financial sector as a guarantee of financial sector stability and sustainable economic growth. Ten years later, the pandemic has once again forced the attendees to discuss the role and condition of the sector in uncertain times as well as responsible finance in a new crisis reality. In 2022, with the military aggression of Russia near EU borders, it was high time the EFC debated finance for values, for freedom, democracy and international solidarity.
As every year, a measurable, practical effect of the Congress’s deliberations will be recommendations on the financial stability and economic development of Poland and the EU.
