On June 13, Bloomberg Government, the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency and the Hungarian Consulate will bring together top investors, government and business leaders and innovative entrepreneurs to examine the challenges and opportunities as countries in Central and Eastern Europe respond to Brexit and other geopolitical and economic realities while transforming their economy from one reliant on low-cost manufacturing to one increasingly powered by technology and high-value products and services.
