Pavilion G, conference hall G5

Within the framework of international economic cooperation, exploring intercultural interactions, the phenomenon of cultural interpenetration, the observance of cultural equality principles, and free cultural exchange take leading positions. It forms the basis for an effective, mutually beneficial partnership between national economies and long-term integration. Nowadays a number of important questions relating to cultural economics are raised: how does culture interact with the economy and how can this interaction be made effective? What is the role of state institutions in regulating economic relations in the field of culture? How do cultural economics influence the development of certain territories and how can individual regions use their historical cultural heritage to improve their economy? How important is the role of business in cultural development, and how much influence does the cultural environment have on business? What forms of international cultural cooperation can be used to improve the investment climate and achieve sustainable economic growth, and to what extent can intercultural dialogue improve economic relations between national economies?
