The Lisbon Summit

13 March 2018

Event Description

Three years after an international bailout programme, Portugal is growing once again. The country began a gradual recovery in 2015, and the economy is expected to expand by more than 2% in 2017-2018. The question now is how this recent progress can be consolidated. Although the current growth rate is the strongest the country has seen in a decade, it does not yet match the rapidly expanding economies of Spain or Ireland. At a time of uncertainty surrounding Brexit and future reform of the EU, The Economist Events’ Lisbon Summit 2018 will bring together government and business leaders, innovators, investors, analysts and academics to examine how innovation can turn the green shoots of economic optimism into sustainable growth.
Can Portugal embrace disruption to grow? How sustainable is Portugal’s economic recovery? Will Portugal remain politically stable over the medium term? How will the global technological revolution impact Portugal? Join The Economist Events’ Lisbon Summit 2018 for an insight in Portugal’s economic and business prospects, into which business sectors in Portugal have the brightest futures and those that need to improve their competitiveness, and for an opportunity to question and interact with top political and business leaders.
