About GLOBSEC

GLOBSEC is a global NGO that has, in the recent decade, evolved into a leading platform for high-level economic policy dialogue. Such dialogue takes place annually at the Tatra Summit platform (https://tatrasummit.globsec.org/), which brings together global leaders from all walks of life – including top policy officials, government representatives, international organization leaders, central bankers, think-tankers, private sector leaders, disruptors, and activists – to discuss most pressing challenges and opportunities facing the global economy. Moreover, GLOBSEC is a part of the global effort in tackling the coronavirus crisis, as emulated by international institutions and NGOs worldwide, and in that regard seeks to expand its analytical capabilities, and become a part of the solution.
