15 Jun , 08:00–09:00
Business Breakfast
Congress Centre, zone E, conference hall E12
by invitation only

As the global political and economic landscape changes, states that pursue neutral and sovereign policies aligned with their national interests are increasingly becoming attractive. The expansion of cooperative collaboration, the reorientation of export and import flows, the establishment of new transport and logistics corridors and production chains, the opening of new joint sectors and markets, the digital and technological transformation, and the implementation of joint initiatives, along with the exchange of best practices, create significant opportunities for new development vectors. In the present political landscape, alongside traditional diplomacy, it is crucial to develop new forms and instruments of international engagement to promote national interests. What new formats of international cooperation could serve as alternatives to established institutional arrangements and facilitate economic, financial, humanitarian, and cultural integration? What challenges do friendly states currently encounter, and how can export-import transactions aid in their economic development?
