Bled Strategic Forum with a Business Note

The Bled Strategic Forum, representing a dialogue between leaders from the private and public sector about key problems faced by Europe in the 21st century, has over the last years established itself as one of the most prominent high-level international conferences. This year, the Forum is organised for the 10th time, supported by the slogan: "Visions of New Partnerships". In addition to the main forum, the Business BSF and Young BSF will take place from 31st August and 1st September.

Over the last decade, the Bled Strategic Forum has evolved into one of the most notable international conferences for strategic dialogue between the private and public sector leaders. This year`s 10th anniversary of the Forum, which is traditionally organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Center for European Perspective, deals with the topic of integration and partnerships, which have become the driving force of today`s politics, economy, diplomacy and society, as we use them to seek effective solutions for numerous challenges. Under the Visions of New Partnerships headline, the Forum participants will seek answers to important questions and solutions for challenges faced by the international community in achieving unity and prosperity.

Business BSF will feature sessions on transport topics and try and the question of how to provide missing links and fill the gaps in the European transport system. In the spirit of integration, panel discussions will touch on the subjects of political and economic reforms and tourism, which is the fastest-growing industry in the world, generating as much as 9% of the annual Gross World Product. Young BSF will run parallel to these events, providing young people with the opportunity to partner with those of similar minds. The solution-oriented panel will encourage discussion and synergise ideas that could become reality.

During the Bled Strategic Forum, Slovenia will host a high-level meeting of 16 + 1 countries from the Central and Eastern Europe and China. This way, the meeting of ministers responsible for tourism at the highest levels will help build a great tourist and travel bridge between Europe and the Far East. For the first time ever, Slovenia will host the China National Tourism Administration Executive and his delegation, which is the greatest opportunity so far to establish a solid partnership between the two countries. "China is among the fastest-growing tourism markets in the world, and this is also reflected in Slovenia. The growth rate of arrivals and overnight stays in visitors from China increases every year," said Karmen Novarlič, head of Tourism Division at the SPIRIT Slovenia public agency, about the international cooperation.
