 The Ambassador of the Czech Republic is pleased to invite CBCC members to a discussion evening with Mr Jan Fischer on Wednesday 11 April at 6pm at the Embassy of the Czech Republic followed by a cocktail reception.
Czech the Trends are a series of discussions given by outstanding personalities who are specialists in their field. The series will encompass topics including economic, financial market, business, trade and technological developments in the Czech Republic, the EU and on the international scene.

Jan Fischer was born in Prague in 1951 to a family of mathematical statisticians and actuarial mathematicians and went on to graduate in 1974 with a degree in statistics and econometrics from the University of Economics in Prague (VSE). He then went on to become the Vice President of the Federal Statistical Office of Czechoslovakia after serving in several positions.
In 1993, after the creation of the Czech Republic, he was appointed Vice President of the new Czech Statistical Office and went on to become President in 2003. Finally in April 2009, Mr Fischer was appointed Prime Minister of the Czech Republic, a post he held until after the elections in June 2010. During the first 3 months of that period he was also President-in-Office when the Czech Republic held the Presidency of the Council for the European Union for the first half of 2009.
In September 2010, he joined the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) as Vice President for Operational Policy. At the EBRD, Mr Fischer is responsible for coordinating the country strategies, development and delivery of the Bank’s policies in various areas as well as maintaining high level relations with EU institutions and governments.
Mr Fischer is a member of a number of prestigious institutions, including the Czech Statistics Society, the International Statistics Institute, the Science Council, the Board of Trustees of the University of Economics, Prague, as well as the Science Council of J E Purkyně in Ústí nad Labem.
