Europa Forum 2014 / Autumn

"Open global markets" – this was the theme of the 27th Europa Forum at the KKL Lucerne.

The Autumn Symposium was opened on 11 November 2014 by Federal Councillor Johann Schneider-Ammann and Axel A. Weber, Chairman of the Board at UBS, with their thoughts about the importance of free trade agreements and about Switzerland's model for success.  On the second day of the forum, high-profile visitors from four continents gave their assessment of trends in relation to global markets and discussed the pros and cons of open markets as drivers for innovation in the Swiss economy. The Apostroph Group once again supported the Europa Forum with a financial donation.
