The 28th Economic Forum in Krynica will be held in Krynica from 4th of September until 6th of September in 2018. The main topic of the Economic Forum in 2018 is "A Europe of Common Values or a Europe of Common Interest". In the framework of the Economic Forum, the VAT fraud section will be organized with the participation of the representatives of European Union’s supreme audit institutions, coordinated by the Polish Supreme Audit Office.

The forum called often the Central European Davos. The Krynica Forum became one of the most important political and business meetings of the Central and Eastern European region for the first time in 1991. In the economic forum, the biggest debate over the political situation, economic problems and economic reforms in Central and Eastern Europe has been going on for years, but the cooperation within the Visegrad Group is also an important topic. The Forum is the most important economic conference for participants in Central Europe.


In the 28th Economic Forum in Krynica, the organizers are expected to attend more than 60 countries. In addition to the representatives of the supreme audit institutions, the economic, business and other participants (politicians, researchers etc.) will also be members of the Forum.


Within the framework of the Forum 6 plenary sessions, more than 180 panel discussions and lectures and various workshops will organize. The broadness of the program is well illustrated by the fact that 14 different topics will be discussed during the event through 3 days.



The significance of the conference and the section of the supreme audit office's orientation is that the realization of the revenue of the budget means continuously a central question in every member state. From this point of view, in the member states, the determination of the value added tax revenue is decisive. The methods and techniques of VAT fraud continue to change, and the audit activity of the supreme audit institutions should also be adapted.


The seminar provides an opportunity to meet with the representatives of Central and Eastern European and other supreme audit institutions of the other EU member states and share their current experiences.
