Congress Centre, zone B, 2nd floor, conference hall B2

Amidst changing geopolitical realities and increasing turbulence in the global economy, businesses require conducive conditions for sustainable development and clear, predictable rules of engagement. Many members of the business community anticipate that the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation will be able to create such an environment. It is widely agreed that we presently have a historic opportunity to capitalize on the robust trade and economic potential of SCO cooperation. Together, how can we address new external challenges and foster more open, inclusive, and mutually beneficial business cooperation, ultimately shaping a common economic space for the benefit of all member countries? What practical measures can be taken to further enhance business relations in key sectors, including transport and logistics, innovation and high technology, and investment cooperation, which are in high demand among businesses?
