Bratislava (Slovakia) June 10 th 2019 (PROTEXT)

From the 6th to the 8th of June, the 14th annual GLOBSEC 2019 security conference took place in Bratislava with the CZECHOSLOVAK GROUP (CSG) as its exclusive partner. On the first day of the conference, its participants could adopt a GLOBSEC Democracy Declaration. Highlighting the importance of democracy rule, human rights and the Euro-Atlantic bond essential for the further development of Central Europe, the declaration has been created to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the fall of communism in the region. By authorizing the document, the signees including the CSG owner Michal Strnad committed themselves to proceed with democracy promotion and protection.

“The Euro-Atlantic bond between the democratic states with a market economy is essential for the CZECHOSLOVAK GROUP holding development. Particularly because we have been an industrial group focused on the cooperation with our Western partners such as Raytheon, General Dynamics European Land Systems and Nexter Systems. Without a functioning Euro-Atlantic axis, we could hardly become a partner of the renowned foreign corporations,” Michal Strnad said.

Among GLOBSEC 2019 central topics were democracy protection, defense and security, digital economy and the European future and sustainability in the context of the global economy. About 150 key speakers, including former U.S. Interior Minister and the founder of Chertoff Group Michael Chertoff, the European Union Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, U.S. Senator Ron Johnson, Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić, Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, the Forbes Magazine founder Steven Forbes, South Korean Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha, Oxford Professor Timothy Garton Ash and many others. Czech prominent participants included Prime Minister Andrej Babiš and Minister of Foreign Affairs Tomáš Petříček.
