Since 2007, the “Journée de l’Economie” has been organised every year, assembling a community of entrepreneurs, leaders, institutional administrators, politicians and decision-makers from Luxembourg and the Greater Region. This conference presents an opportunity to take stock of the economic situation and contemplate ways to boost the development of businesses in Luxembourg and the Greater Region through open discussions.
Over the years, this conference has come to constitute one of the key events of Luxembourg’s corporate agenda. Now in its twelfth edition, the “Journée de l’Economie” has provided a stage for in-depth discussions about hot topics such as the economic crisis, industrialisation, economic growth and drivers of competitiveness in Luxembourg and the Greater Region.
This year, our annual conference brings together leading names from the worlds of business, academia and politics to discuss and debate the state of the economy and critical issues affecting economic growth globally and in Luxembourg.
