This year's second Three Seas Stock Exchanges Conference is taking place on October 7 and 8 at the Museum of the John Paul II Collection (Porczyński Gallery), a historic venue and the seat of the Warsaw Stock Exchange in 1828-1887, according to Polish news agency PAP. The event is also broadcasted online.
A live webcast is available at https://www.gpw.pl/thethreeseasconference and on GPW's YouTube channel. The event will proceed in English with simultaneous interpretation into Polish.
"The Three Seas Initiative conceived six years ago is gaining ground. As stock exchanges and capital markets of the region, we are a natural fit for the Initiative. We can see clear practical benefits of the co-operation. On the one hand, it enables joint promotion of the regional market: as a whole, it is much more attractive for global investors," said Marek Dietl, president of the GPW Management Board.
"On the other hand, our cooperation ensures that the voice of smaller exchanges can be heard in the drafting of European capital market regulations; as a result, Community law can address the interests of both the biggest and the smallest stock exchanges. Moreover, GPW is looking forward to closer collaboration in the field of technology. The Three Seas Stock Exchanges Conference is a perfect platform both to exchange opinions and to conduct practical business talks," he added.
The first day of the event is dedicated to GPW. Speakers at the debate on "Thirty Years of GPW's Experience for the Development of Central and Eastern European Markets" include Alexander Saveliev, European Bank for Reconstruction and Development; Nikoloz Gagua, National Bank of Georgia; and Davit Nahapetyan, Central Bank of Armenia. The cooperation of the Three Seas exchanges includes exchange of experience with technology, which is the main theme of an address by Witold Wiliński, CEO, GPW Tech.
The second day of the conference is dedicated to the cooperation of the Three Seas Stock Exchanges. GPW is the initiative's co-founder and leader. The day will open with an address by Paweł Jabłoński, Undersecretary of State, Ministry of Foreign Affairs. A discussion moderated by GPW CEO Marek Dietl will bring together the CEOs of the stock exchanges in Bratislava, Bucharest, Budapest, Ljubljana, Prague, Sofia, Vienna, and Zagreb. Paweł Nierada, First Vice-President, Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego, will outline the economic dimension of the Three Seas Initiative: the Three Seas Fund, of which BGK is the initiator, co-founder and principal investor. The final panel discussion will feature CEEplus companies from Romania, Slovenia and Croatia as well as TFI PZU CEO Robert Kubin.
