Money and Reforms: Next Generation of European Investments from Rīga

September 13 brings the conference Money and Reforms: Next Generation of European Investments, taking place in Rīga.

The conference aims to inject fresh blood in the Baltic Sea region’s investment environment for the 2021-2027 period. The event will identify key structural reforms that could transform the Baltic economy supported by the Cohesion Policy, InvestEU, capital markets and other public and private funding.

In a series of TED-style talks, speakers will share their perspectives on how to invest in projects and companies for viable growth in the region. Experts will debate the pros and cons of grants versus financial instruments. The conference will be a great networking opportunity with leading authorities and experts from the European Commission, European Investment Bank, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Baltic and Scandinavian governments, business and private investment community, think tanks, academia and local governments.
