EFL Header Herbst 2018

European States, among them Switzerland, take up top positions in the international competition. Nevertheless, the advancing internationalization creates an even higher level of competition as well as dependency, which results in uncertainty. How can Europe remain at the forefront of this dynamic environment? What course of action should be taken in the fields of politics and economics? And how is Switzerland's relationship with the EU affecting our own competitiveness?

Learn from top representatives of international companies, the field of policy and economy, how you can seize the opportunity in this increasing competitive environment for your company.
