- International Benchmarking Forum 2010 ??Sustainable Competitiveness for Europe and its Regions
- Basel, Hilton, Auditorium B?loise, Switzerland
- What will the future bring and how can European politicians and decision makers cope with the unknown future? How can we render and keep our regions competitive for the next decade? How do global trends affect Europe and its regions? What will be the role of Europe in an integrated world economy and how can we best prepare for this changing international division of labour? Sustainability has become a buzzword over the last years. Originating from natural sciences, it is used today in many different contexts and various meanings. For BAKBASEL sustainability is by no means restricted to ecological issues, it rather describes stable processes of all kinds that can last for a very long time. Thus, the term sustainability can be applied to demographic, social and or economic developments as well as to public finances.When it comes to economic performance of regions, sustainability means lasting competitiveness. This requires both a constant observation of the latest trends in the world and a constant monitoring of the own position. This year's International Benchmarking Forum will help you learn more about relevant global trends and their impact on European regions.[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
