Transcript

  • 1. TOWARDS LISBON 2.1 September 28, 2007 Why Europe needs Lisbon strategy Prof. Dr. Andrej Umek
  • 2. Lisbon goals :
    • T o preserve our live stile
    • To keep up our traditional position in the world.
    Two mega trends:
    • Globalization
    • Rapid technological development, which
    • reached the critical point
  • 3. Europe is not successfully following the Lisbon strategy. Some examples:
    • F or every one job lost to overseas competitors 1.2 jobs have created in US and 0.8 in Europe
    • Economic growth lingers at below 2% a year while it has moved up to more than 3 % on average in America.
    • Decline in productivity growth etc.
  • 4. REVISING THE TRENDS – LISBON STRATEGY
    • It is basically a matter of :
    • Education
    • Innovation
    • Entrepreneurial spirit
    • Simply increasing money for R&D (for example public investment) will never make it, since what is needed, is not merely more invention, but better 'innovation'
  • 5. FIVE AREAS THAT MIGHT MERIT FURTHER EXAMINATION
    • Which areas or sectors are most crucial to reform? Which are 'necessary', which are just 'nice'?
    • Where have we failed and where have we succeeded in adapting to globalisation and why?
    • How can the EU create and finance a more entrepreneurial environment where risks pay?
  • 6. FIVE AREAS THAT MIGHT MERIT FURTHER EXAMINATION – cont.
    • What policy lessons can we learn from the rapid growth of emerging economics?
    • What concrete steps can Europe take to improve conditions for growth and innovation?
  • 7. MY PERSONAL VIEW
    • Human resources
    • Entrepreneurial spirit that results in sufficiently large investments, to put knowledge to work and to enhance the economic growth
  • 8. Thank you for coming. I am looking forward to your contributions. I am going to follow them with keen interest and open mind and am convinced that at the end of the day we will be at least a step wiser and able to adopt the Lisbon strategy more successfully. I wish that this conference will be interesting to you at least as much as it is interesting to me. I thank you all in advance for your interesting and valuable contributions.
