Davos, January - Ivaylo Slavov, CEO of BULPROS, joined as a co-founder the new CEE Business Council named Growing Europe on an official ceremony during the World Economic Forum 2020 in Davos. The objective of the initiative is to promote Central and Eastern Europe as an attractive investment destination for global investors and encourage cooperation between business leaders of the region. All the companies which are members of the Business council are leaders in their sectors and share the vision of stable growth, which was the prerequisite to name it “Growing Europe”.
“The foundation of the CEE Business Council Growing Europe is an important step towards further developing the potential of the region which in the recent years has demonstrated rapid growth, stability and sustainability. These and other factors position it as a favorable market for investments with increased business opportunities and one of our main goals is to discuss with companies common business interests and successful economic activities in the CEE region.” explained Ivaylo Slavov.
Paweł Surówka, CEO of the PZU Group, announced the launch of the initiative Growing Europe, founded by the CEOs of 12 of the largest companies in the region and supported by global leaders from Google, Goldman Sachs, or Atlantic Council. As one of the fastest growing IT companies, BULPROS took the opportunity to participate in this ambitious project and promote the CEE region as the world’s rapidly developing and stable market.
“The region is well positioned to become the most attractive investment destination both in Europe and globally. It offers economic, political, and social stability while generating stable economic growth throughout economic cycles. By joining our forces, we can raise awareness about the dynamism, entrepreneurship and innovation of this part of Europe. By doing this, we want to send a positive signal both to the entire European Union and the world: Europe is not defending its status quo, Europe is Growing, invest in Growing Europe,” said PZU CEO Paweł Surówka during the official ceremony of signing the memorandum.
