Executive Breakfast on FDI and inclusive growth: accelerating Europe's competitiveness and attractiveness
Location: Stanhope Hotel, Rue du Commerce 9, B-1000 Brussels
Foreign direct investment (FDI) is part of Europe’s economic lifeblood. The 2018 EY’s Europe Attractiveness Survey found that, in 2017, foreign investors made more than 6,500 decisions to invest in the 50 countries of greater Europe. The report comes at a critical time for the future of Europe. It shows that there is everything to play for. But the winners — corporate and geographical — will be those who learn and understand the new rules and apply them to best effect.
However, economic indicators only tell one side of the story. It is crucial to also understand the impact of foreign investment on societies and communities. It could be inferred that FDI only accomplishes its purpose when it fosters sustainable, long-term and inclusive growth that benefits everyone in our societies, not just a few.
EY is delighted to invite you to join to a thought-provoking discussion, as part of Invest Week, which will take place in the heart of Brussels and gather representatives from the EU institutions, C-Suite executives and academia.
Panel discussion moderated by Elizabeth Krahulecz, EY, EMEIA Public Policy, Head of Brussels Office

Lúcio Vinhas De Souza, European Political Strategy Centre (EPSC), Economics Team Leader
Jacob Lund Nielsen, Teneo cabinet DN, CEO (confirmed)
