Discussion panel: Is there one universal way to attract investment? #Professionals

How to attract business investments to the city? Do we need to find an epiphany that will bring investments flooding or just to implement several simpler, but necessary solutions that would make cities vibrant and more attractive for global capital?

Get a chance to ask Government’s and municipalities’ representatives about what they are actually doing to create productive, long term sustainable environment for global and local business.
