One of the most important issues raised during this year's World Economic Forum in Davos was the growing need for systemic changes that would ensure universal access to high-quality health care. It is a global challenge that is becoming a crucial social problem, faced not only by developing countries, but increasingly also by the developed countries. Can the dynamic development of modern technologies constitute a solution to this problem? Prominent world experts attending the event, which was organised by PZU and the Financial Times Live at the Polish House in Davos, attempted to answer this question.
The world’s population will reach almost 10 billion by the middle of this century. One of the challenges we face today is access to high-quality universal healthcare. This will be one of the issues discussed at the event to be held by PZU and the Financial Times on January 22nd in Davos.
Thanks to the joint efforts of PZU and Bank Pekao S.A., Polish House will be opened for the first time during the World Economic Forum in Davos. For the entire duration of one of the most important meetings of global business leaders, the venue will house debates, presentations and conferences on global issues and the Polish economy.
On Friday, December 14, 2018, the Atlantic Council and PZU SA signed a multi-year strategic partnership agreement at the Council’s Annual Forum in Washington DC.

The optimism was palpable at the Harvard Club on October 4, as speakers and panelists gave presentations at the event “Poland: The Can-Do Nation,” presented by PZU, one of Poland's largest financial institutions, in cooperation with the Boston Consulting Group (BCG). The air of enthusiasm was not surprising, given that just over a week ago Poland was officially recognized as a developed market, less than 30 years after it became a free market economy.
