How the Forum emerged
The East Forum (formerly the Venice Forum) emerged from the need to create an international venue to explore issues and topics of discussion for European policy and from the need to strengthen the role of UniCredit as an actor in the international debate.
One aim of the Forum was – in a number of previous editions – to contribute to the debate on the integration of future member states into Europe.
The topics covered in the previous editions, among others, energy policy, industrial policy, migration and bilateral trade agreements.
