09:30 – Welcome from Warsaw & London
These remain unprecedented times. In the CEE region, now more than ever, the people on the ground want to know what the international investment market thinks, and the international investors want to hear what the players on the ground are saying. As we can’t travel, it’s even more important to share insights and opinions.
