Within a Global House of Harmony of Economics, Ecology and Ethics the African Continent has to be more in the focus of the global society, Prof.Hallier stated again in the beginning of 2017. Africa has to reduce its food waste at the level of crops as well as by better logistics and processing towards upgraded margins. Retail players can play a major part in this development.

|15.12.2016: CZ-Summit 2017
From the start on the CZ-summit was supported in Prague by ERA due to the strong relationship with Prof.Jiri Jindra and Prof. Dana Zadrazilova (both VSE Prague) as well as Dr.Tomas Krasny and Dr.Barbora Krasna (at the beginning still from Incoma: now Blueevents). The CZ-summit is a success-story of change from socialism to market forces.
Meanwhile the CZ- Summit is the biggest conference player for trade within all Central Europe. The 2017-Event is underlining that consumers, distribution and producers all together form "one market"; they fight with different tools like brick and mortar and with different retail brands for one and the same consumer like the internet-trade; and consumers make up there choices each day new!
