"The future of real estate is closely linked to current economic developments. Europe is at the heart of the financial crisis, and acts as a focus point for the doubts and uncertainties of real estate professionals. Well known for his involvement and his key role in European affairs for many years, Joschka Fischer will give the sector’s players and leaders a better understanding of the outlook for the euro zone and raise their awareness about the challenges ahead," says Filippo Rean, Director of MIPIM.

He led the Green Party in their first participation in government, both at state level in Hesse and at federal level. From 1998 to 2005, he served as Minister for Foreign Affairs for the Federal Republic of Germany and Vice-Chancellor to Gerhard Schröder. "As Germany is the Country of Honour for this 23rd MIPIM, we are proud to welcome a distinguished protagonist and connoisseur of the European political and economic scene," says Filippo Rean.
A supporter of a federal Europe, Joschka Fischer will examine the need to adopt a common policy to ensure stability and growth. He will also highlight the role of the single currency in saving the financial system of the euro zone.
