Summit100 – the largest gathering of the business leaders from the SEE countries: competitive potential of the entire SEE


The organizers of the Summit100 are the Croatian Employers’ Association (HUP), Atlas Foundation, Serbian Association of Managers (SAM) and Managers' Association of Slovenia (ZMS).

This year’s Summit100 takes place on July 14 and 15 in Cavtat, Croatia. The main topic of this year’s conference is the improvement of economic opportunities and regional cooperation through recognizing the potentials in the fields of tourism, transport and logistics, food and beverage, ICT and services, pharmaceuticals , construction and energy.
The conference is attended by around a hundred business leaders from the SEE countries.
They participate in roundtable discussions, grouped according to the economic sectors, and discuss the impediments to and possibilities of cooperation in the region. The proposals of how to improve regional cooperation in particular sectors will be presented in a plenary panel session featuring the state delegations from the SEE countries, including Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Slovenia and Serbia. On the second day of the conference, the participants focus on how to attract global investors to the region, with some of the largest investors in the SEE countries sharing their experiences, while the key managers of the region’s prominent banks will attend the final panel and talk about accessing finances for different business projects.

“One of the main goals of this year’s Summit100 is to create new opportunities for cooperation and strengthen the foundations for the realization of the joint business interests in the region’s seven economic sectors with the biggest developmental potentials. At this year’s Summit100 we will also have an opportunity to find out how to successfully institutionalize regional cooperation without jeopardizing the countries’ sovereignty and identity, by hearing about an example of cooperation between the Nordic countries,” stated Damir Kuštrak, President of the Summit100 Board.
