Krynica Economic Forum focuses on crisis. Report by Alicja Baczynska.
Seeking to find new solutions for the economic situation, the Forum goes ahead with surprising absence of Polish PM, Donald Tusk.
12th Economic Forum gathered 2 500 attendees descended on Krynica Zdroj in Southern Poland to discuss economic issues.
Despite the no show from Polish PM, the Forum attracted presidents: Poland's Wladyslaw Komorowski, his Croatian counterpart Ivo Josipović, as well as former Polish leaders Lech Walesa and Aleksander Kwasniewski.
The issue of current economic crisis weighs heavily on the attendees' minds. There were also calls for new strategies to best capitalise on Poland's relative immunity to economic turmoil thus far.
Alicja Baczynska hears from delegates, including the head of Forum's Program Council Zygmunt Berdychowski, and asks Wawrzyniec Konarski, specialist from Jagiellonian University, why Donald Tusk called off his visit.
