Global Conference 2011
The Economy and Culture of the New Poland<br>
<i>By invitation only</i>
Tuesday, May 3, 2011 / 9:30 am - 10:45 am
One of the most stable democracies and economies in Europe today, Poland is due to assume the EU's rotating presidency in mid-2011, while former Prime Minister Jerzy Buzek is the current speaker of the European Parliament. Against this diplomatic backdrop, Poland's advocacy of Israel and the Jewish people has fostered a remarkable, full-fledged cultural renaissance. As testament, the stunning Museum of the History of Polish Jews is being erected opposite the memorial to the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. In this session, leaders will discuss the economic, political and cultural outlook for a country that has garnered global respect for its success in building a market economy, a more open society and strong alliances with both Israel and the U.S.
