Another element of the meeting was a panel discussion “Support for entrepreneurship – expectations and reality”. The thematic blocks that the panel managed to address included pro-entrepreneurial education – challenges and opportunities, and the situation in the local market and market needs.

At the end of the debate, attendees were asked to identify topics for future meetings. Leading issues in this regard were housing in the broadest sense and the place of women in business and the labor market.
