The Coface Country Risk Conference, currently at its 10th edition, has become a traditional risk management event in Romania, a catalyst of ideas and debates within the national business community.

Throughout the years gathered, the statute of one of the most prestigious business events in Romania experienced an accelerated growth from one year to another in terms of specialists attending the event and the representativeness of the business environment.

In 2014 the event will bring together 300 participants, country risk experts, academic and banking specialists and Romanian and foreign investors.

The aim of the Coface Country Risk Conference is to debate the world's economic events that have occurred during 2013, to analyze their influence on the CEE and especially Romanian economy and to forecast the tendencies for the following year.

The conference will be structured in 3 sessions in a one day event.

In the first panel, academics, macroeconomic and country risk experts will provide speeches and presentations, debating the economic events of 2013 and the capitalization of the Romanian economic potential, alongside a synthesis of how these events influenced the European and domestic economy.

This debate will be followed by two round tables. During the first one, chief economists of the main banking institutions will focus on engines of sustainable growth, fiscal discipline and lending revival issues and how these will influence the redefinition of the Romanian economy.

The last session will approach effective models of corporate financing within the current economic context, strategies to attract private equity and identifying sectors that feature real investment opportunities.
