Economic Forum of the Poznan Conurbation
Wednesday, 02 June 2010 21:48

?Strong conurbation, modern metropolis? ? this was the motto of the 3rd Economic Forum of the Poznan Conurbation. The participants of the meeting discussed, above all, entrepreneurship promotion in the context of plans and strategies determining the conurbation?s growth directions.

The Economic Forum of the Poznan Conurbation has been a place of experience exchange and a chance to discuss entrepreneurship promotion in the context of plans and strategies determining the conurbation?s growth directions for a couple of years now. During these meetings, subjects connected with currently implemented investments are discussed, such as investments connected with the European Football Championships EURO 2012.

This year?s meeting was dedicated to the currently developing Poznan conurbation strategy by 2020 and 2030. Special guests of the meeting include  representatives of the Spanish region of Barcelona, believed to be one of the model European metropolises.

The Poznan conurbation is a local self-government community created by the inhabitants of the City of Poznan and the Poznan Poviat, encompassing 17 districts situated around Poznan. On account of the central location of Poznan, even districts situated several dozen kilometres from Poznan have declared their intention of joining the district. The conurbation has no legal nature as yet, but is a free union of districts. However, the members of the Conurbation Board plan to intensify the cooperation in the next couple of years.
