Yves Mersch, Member of the Executive Board of the ECB
Any signs of fragmentation diminishing?

Certainly. It is visible in the sovereign spreads. There is less divergence. The number of banks accessing markets is going up. But there is still a long way to go. We think establishing a complete banking union would help along that way.

Kliton Gerxhani: This summer was a bit specific in Albania, due to elections we had in June, which took a bit of attention as they are very important to us. Therefore we cannot say this year was better to the last one, besides few investments in the road infrastructure especially the tunnel which connects Tirana to Elbasan and the east part of Albania, which now shorten the distance  and improve the comfort of traveling. What countries are the main percentage of tourists coming from?

David Amerland - Founder, SEO / Social Media Consultant and Author of Google Semantic Search
 The web is changing and the behaviour of the online population is changing with it. Behind the familiar desktop field box of Google’s search a new intelligence is beginning to grow and it’s learning everything it needs about yourself and your business.


The semantic web is an old idea whose time has finally come. First articulated by the inventor of the web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, as far back as 2004, it has taken over a dozen years to get to the point where it can become a reality. But now that it is here there are some very real questions that need to be asked on the way it affects business and marketing.

At the top level and obviously speaking generally in the CEE I am expecting to see more growth in linear channels and an accelerating trend in HD services, which are attractive to viewers. I also expect to see more on demand services, particularly “catch up” services which are proving to be highly attractive in the marketplace. There will be more and more video and obviously much of this will be delivered using broadband connectivity.

Can you tell us why you thought it was a good idea to bring the initiative to Serbia?

As part of my education initiative, I thought this would be a brilliant way to launch an entrepreneurship initiative through this program within my education foundation. Did you know that roughly 80% of participants in startup weekend plan to continue working with their team after startup weekend and that 5000 startups have been created just because of this global initiative.

Mr. P. Chatzaras, The owner of Brillant S.A. Sewing Threads Industry Over the past 15 years, the industry has experienced dramatic changes in Greece. Could you highlight the main factors which contributed to developments that resulted in the current situation?

Mr. Chatzaras: The gradual elimination of the subsidies by the Greek government, due to EEC regulations, forced a lot of factories to bankruptcy, because they depended solely on the subsidies and not on their profit and as a consequence they did not make in time the necessary investments to cut their costs, to become more organized, more efficient and also they did not use modern techniques in marketing.
