On 20 June 2011, Warsaw hosted the Polish-German Economic Summit. At the meeting, PGE was represented by Tomasz Zadroga, President of the Management Board. The main objective of the Summit was an evaluation of the economic relations between the two countries, a determination of cooperation trends and a development of recommendations for the joint meeting of the German and Polish government.
The Polish-German Economic Summit was organised within the framework of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the signing of the good neighbour treaty between Poland and Germany.
Tomasz Zadroga, PGE Management Board President, participated in a discussion panel dedicated to power generation and environmental protection. During the debate he stressed the importance of developing an energy mix for the whole EU providing for power generation in hydro power plants in the north of Europe, the use of solar energy in the south of the continent, the dominant role of nuclear power plants in France, and coal/lignite power plants in Poland and Germany.
In Mr Zadroga's opinion, this necessity is understood by the whole power generation sector and a growing number of politicians within the EU. However, as he indicated, this will not be possible without developing common European regulations.
The Economic Summit was attended by the leading representatives of business, experts, members of the diplomatic corps, and ministers responsible for economic affairs.
The Polish-German Economic Summit was organised by the Confederation of Poland's Employers Associations.
