Elias Neocleous & Co LLC is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the 13th Limassol Economic Forum (LEF) which will take place at the Park Lane Resort & Spa, Limassol on 21 October 2022. Our firm has supported LEF since its inception and we are proud to have witnessed its growth into one of the region's premier business conferences attracting speakers and guests from around the globe.

We live in uncertain times which seem beset by seismic occurrences such as the Covid 19 pandemic, war in Ukraine and climate change. At times it is difficult to see a path forward, however, that is what LEF 2022 will bravely try to do! In response to current geopolitical and economic upheaval LEF 2022 will focus on "Understanding the new world order: Economics, Business and International Relations redefined". Clearly there will be much to discuss and hopefully some positive guidance for weathering the storms ahead! Helping us along with the journey will be an impressive array of speakers which includes Francesco Ceccato ( CEO Barclays Europe), Dr. Michael Haliassos ( Chair of Macroeconomics and Finance at Goethe University Frankfurt), Niklas Swanström (Executive Director, Institute for Security and Development Policy, Sweden), Yannis Stournaras (Governor, Bank of Greece and Member of the Governing Council of the European Central Bank), several ambassadors, senior government ministers and leading business figures.

As befits the vastness of the challenge the topics under consideration are wide ranging touching on a need to redefine foreign policy and international relations, the changing role of China on the world stage, the re-emergence of inflation as a threat to western economies, and the future of diplomacy to name just a few. Our own managing partner, Elias Neocleous, will be drawing on our firm's experiences and lending his thoughts to a panel discussion on technology megatrends and their impact on business whilst Francesco Ceccato will be attempting to answer the question on many people's lips 'How do we finance Europe's future'?

The event will offer some frank exchange of views and hopefully the promise of a glimpse of light ahead! We look forward to seeing you there.
