From November 18 to 20 the Macedonia Economic Summit in Skopje will present ideas and best practices in how to advance industry and business in Macedonia. Macedonia2025 invited experts from more than 15 countries from the Balkan region and from around the world who will present their analysis, ideas and programs for economic development.
Tomi Ahonen, whom Forbes rates one of the top mobile experts in the world, is a keynote speaker at the Summit. Mr. Ahonen, who has filled executive positions in Nokia, advises a number of countries such as Singapore, Finland, Malaysia and Ireland, on bringing about digital transformation. Mr. Ahonen has regularly speaks at events in Silicon Valley and Tokyo and has spoken at more than 100 conferences around the world. He has written twelve books and provided his input into more than 140 publications where he has predicted future trends in technology.
Mr. Ahonen is a keynote speaker at the Summit in Skopje where he will talk about the South Korean digital miracle and about the development of this sector in Kenya, Ireland, South Africa and Columbia. Furthermore, he will relate examples from his work in Europe about the possibility of Macedonia developing into a smart technologies hub.
Macedonia2025 is especially honored that many professionals and experts from Macedonia who work abroad in successful and famous companies have signed up to participate in the Summit. People such as Filip Misovski from SAP in Germany, Petar Kajevski from Oracle in Austria, Dino Gramatikov from Inmarsat in Switzerland, Bistra Kumbaroska from Impact Hub Vienna, Lou Naumovski from Kinross Gold Corp. in Russia and many others, are eager to give their contribution to the vision of a more successful and more advanced Macedonia.
By unselfishly sharing knowledge, but also by expanding the capacities for such knowledge to be absorbed, Macedonia can transform itself into a center where technology is developed. What is significant about economic development is the need for some segments in the industry to transform, to interact with others and to try to integrate with industries and sectors outside Macedonia.
Macedonia2025 would like to invite professionals, entrepreneurs, analysts and those who are generally interested in business and technology, to connect with the attendees of the Summit and to work on their own vision of developing a company or a capacity.
