Elena Badea led a workshop on innovation in financial services, during which the delegates discussed the recent trends and assessed their current level of innovation. The workshop inspired delegates with new ideas for further development. Facing the challenges of the recent changes in General Data Protection Regulation, the firms got to know the approach and measures that should be taken in order to be compliant with the new law and protect their clients’ data in the most efficient way.
At the end of the meeting, member firms from Central Europe discussed the next steps for regional cooperation and developed new projects, to use the resources from the cluster in the most efficient way. Having exchanged their thoughts on different aspects of collaboration, the meeting was very informative and contributed to building trust among the firms through increased connectivity.
The day closed in appropriate style with a hearty traditional Romanian dinner. The delegates also had the chance to take part in a tour around the city and admire the part of Bucharest called ‘little Paris’, that is well known for its charm and characteristic architecture.
