Dear Sir or Madam,
on behalf of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation I would like to kindly invite you to apply for participation at introduction of our newest publication on state owned enterpriseseSOS SOEs! connected to public debate:
Role of state owned enterprises in central European Markets
In a perfect world, the state would not find it necessary to interfere in market activities nor have a mandate to do so. However, since we are far from an ideal situation, we must make do with what we have. And what we still have in Eastern Europe are state-own enterprises. The aim of this debate is to give an overview of the existing practices employed by governments in SOEs and find possible solutions to make their operation less inconvenient for businesses.
Public debate will take place on 29th November from 17:30 to 19:00 in the Eurostars Thalia Hotel (Národní 13, Prague 1).
