Since the outbreak of the war between Russia and Ukraine, the price of natural gas has spiked, and today it is a hundred times higher than it was at the end of May 2020. Electricity prices in most European countries are almost ten times higher than two years ago. The rise of food prices has never been so dramatic in the European Union. The European Central Bank estimates that the eurozone GDP could fall by up to 1% due to the military conflict. Due to the current situation, the upcoming international conference of the MCC brings together some of the most renowned experts from home and abroad to discuss the economic consequences of war.

The Budapest Summit will be held on September 30 – October 1, 2022, at the Mathias Corvinus Collegium (Tas vezér utca 3-7, 1113 Budapest). For the detailed programme click HERE.
