A. Kvasnevs’ky, the President of the Republic of Poland (1995-2005)
I congratulate this most honorable international gathering of economic scientists and wish them inspiration in their creative work. The globalization of any sector of life leads to the appearance of general economic problems, which can be successfully solved only on the basis of joining efforts of scientists from different countries. Your Forum is a real demonstration of the world integration process in the field of economic science.
I wish you progress and new achievements.

Joseph E. Stiglitz 2001 Economics Laureate

Let me congratulate you with the establishing of the International Nobel Forum in Economics, which opening will provide the basis for discussions of some of the important issues facing the world: issues of economic fluctuations, crises, the desire for innovations, social innovations that will enable the world to embrace some of major global problems, such as global warming, increasing integration of countries in the world as a result of swift transportation, communication, cultural and other global changes. I think that the creation of the memorial sign within the framework of the Forum will be impressingly important as well.
