The GLOBSEC “30 Years of Democratic Transition in CEE: Unfinished Business?”

Thirty years of democracy in Central and Eastern Europe is certainly a cause for celebration and a watershed moment in the annals of history. Recalling the past achievements, the liberal-democratic revolution of 1989 was the first step in correcting grievances of the past and confirmed the region’s rightful place in the European family of nations.

The GLOBSEC “30 Years of Democratic Transition in CEE: Unfinished Business?” commemorates the determination of the people and nations of the region to live free, prosperous, and secure societies. The Baltic American Chamber of Commerce (BACC) is proud to celebrate together with other Central and Eastern Europe nations this tremendous success story for democracy and the idea of Europe whole and free and at peace with American partners who helped confirm the rightful place of the region in the democratic family of nations.

The Conference brought together a limited number of stakeholders from different sectors (government, business and NGOs from CEE and the US) to encourage open and lively discussions. The Conference was followed by a Gala Dinner to commemorate and celebrate this turning point in the history of our nations. We have been joined by the new President of Slovakia, H.E. Zuzana Čaputová, Minister of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic, H.E. Miroslav Lajčák and many other distinguished guests.

Conference and Gala Dinner took place on September 20, 2019 in New York City’s Bohemian National Hall.
