The Munich Economic Summit, a joint initiative of CESifo and the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt, organised in partnership with The Times of London, The Wall Street Journal Europe, and Handelsblatt, is aimed at bringing together academic scholars and decision-makers in politics, industry and finance to discuss vital European issues.
The Summit convenes annually and involves only a limited number of invited participants to allow for a private atmosphere.

6th Summit Lecture, 18 February 2014

In 2009, the CESifo Group and the BMW Stiftung Herbert Quandt launched a Munich-Summit-associated seminar series entitled "Summit Lectures", to be held before the Summit itself and aimed at discussing the main theme of the year's Summit in a smaller, more intimate circle.

The title of the 6th Summit Lecture is "WTO - Breakthrough in Bali for World Free Trade?".
