Events on Kiev-s Maidan Square, followed by the so called dignity revolution and territorial conflict between Ukraine and Russia, drastically changed the balance of power in Europe. These events made the West aware of the fact, that the government of Russian Federation did not give up on cold war approach of building its own -sphere of influence-.
As a consequence of the events in Ukraine, unprecedented in post-cold-war history, awakening of NATO regarding collective defence ensured during the Newport and Warsaw Summits. Europe once again stepped into a period of uncertainty, when political situation will be shaped by various, often contradictory, policies.

Plenary Session | Cooperation in the armaments sector in the Central and Eastern Europe

States of the Central and Eastern Europe may gain a lot from regional cooperation in armaments sector. Implementation of mutual solutions and coordination of arms acquisition processes, i.e. within the V4 frames, may significantly contribute to the increase of security level of NATO-s Eastern flank. Member states of the North Atlantic Alliance are also facing the challenge of tightening economic and industrial cooperation with Ukraine and Belarus, which, given the confrontational approach of Russian Federation, are buffer states. Aid in development of Ukrainian armaments sector could contribute to building its assertiveness in its contacts with Russia, and to the rise of competitiveness of Ukraine-s industry on the market.

Speed session | Key projects for the development and economic security of Central and Eastern Europe

The cooperation of Central and Eastern European countries, where Poland and Ukraine play a special role in the field of transport and logistics, as countries located at the EU and Asia’s borders, is crucial to the economic development of Europe. Responsible and long-term development policy, supported by scientific and business expertise can successfully secure the position of Central and Eastern European countries in economic rivalry, contributing to the security of the “Baltic states”, Poland, Ukraine, Romania, Slovakia, Hungary, Moldova, Bulgaria or Belarus. Poland and Ukraine, in cooperation, can become the beginning of transnational cooperation.

14.45 – 15.45 | Working session | Modernization of Ukrainian armaments sector – role of Poland and NATO

Ukrainian armaments sector has big potential, especially in the aviation segment. States of the Central and Eastern Europe, which currently modernise their armed forces, should try hard to engage Ukrainian industry into the European orbit, as it possesses many advanced technologies and modern production facilities. In the perspective of next few years, given favourable development of Ukraine-s situation, it may become a valuable partner for Western arms industry.

14.45 – 15.45 | Working session | Security of oil deliveries to the Central and Eastern Europe

Market and structure of crude oil-s chain of supply in the Central and Eastern Europe will undergo redefining. Most likely, in coming years, decisions, which will affect the energy future of the states of the region, will be made. Ukraine, after political changes of the Maidan events, substantially changed the structure of its natural oil and gas supply chain – it opened for the West and substantially cut down on supplies from Russia. It is a chance for Poland to exploit oil terminal in Gdańsk to its full capabilities.

15.30 – 16.30 | Working session | European natural gas sector – assertive policy and development of infrastructure

European natural gas sector – assertive policy and development of infrastructure

European gas market is one of the fastest growing sectors of economic cooperation within the EU frames. For states of the Central and Eastern Europe, assertive policy towards Russian Federation is of utmost importance, as Russia, by developing transit infrastructure (namely Nord Stream II & Turkish Stream) or attempts to avoid decisions of the so called -third energy package- (OPAL gas pipe) wants to strip these countries from profits from gas-transit and to deprive them of their place in the energy supply chain. The key to counteract this process should be development of common stand in the European Commission, further development of transfer infrastructure amid states of the region (including creation of LNG hub) and creation of infrastructure for supplies from new directions – via LNG terminal in Świnoujście and the Baltic Pipe.
