The Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy, the Chamber of Commerce of Luxembourg and FEDIL, in cooperation with PwC Luxembourg, are delighted to announce that the next “Journée de l’Économie” conference will take place on

Thursday, 22 March 2018

at the Chamber of Commerce (7, Alcide de Gasperi, Luxembourg - Kirchberg),
and will be dedicated to:

Innovation, growth and prosperity

What will drive economic growth in Luxembourg and worldwide?

The continuation and sustainability of economic growth since WWII is an area of fundamental concern, not least in Europe due to its generous social security systems.
Therefore, the following questions seem essential:

  • Can we expect continued economic growth and what will the future growth drivers be (including sustainable business models, disruptive technologies, etc.)?
  • Is the digital economy capable of generating the significant productivity gains we all hope for?
  • What is the role of the State and other public institutions in stimulating innovation, which is at the heart of economic productivity gains?
  • What is driving the "sustainable growth debate" in Luxembourg?

In the morning, hear from an exceptional line-up of speakers, including insights from:

  • Mariana Mazzucato, Professor in the Economics of Innovation and Public Value and Director of the Institute for Innovation and Public Purpose, University College London (UCL), and
  • Marcel Fratzscher, President, DIW Berlin (German Institute for Economic Research); Professor of Macroeconomics and Finance, Humboldt-University Berlin; Member of the Advisory Council, Ministry of Economy of Germany.

In the afternoon, there will be a panel discussion between international experts, local politicians and businesspeople, focusing on growth - including sustainable growth - in the Luxembourg context.

Finally, there will be two parallel sessions:

  • A working session (15:00 - 16:30), in collaboration with Fondation IDEA, on the implications of economic growth for Luxembourg's society and infrastructure; and
  • A parallel conference (15:00 - 15:45), entitled "Healthy society needs a healthy economy - What is the role of business?" aiming to illustrate in concrete terms what it means to develop a sustainable core business strategy for private business.
