The CEPA Forum is the only platform of its kind in Washington for government leaders and the expert community to engage on key strategic questions linking the United States and its Central-East European Allies. The Forum highlights the transformative economic and political impact of the countries between the Baltic and Black Seas and their importance to the United States. Now in its 7th meeting, the Forum brings together more than 400 leaders from government, business and research institutions for high-level, policy-focused discussions aimed at strengthening U.S. engagement in Central-East Europe. Incorporating experts and senior decision-makers from both sides of the Atlantic, the Forum considers emerging opportunities and potential strategic risks in this critical region of the world. The proceedings are widely covered in U.S. and Central-East European media.
