BAKU, 26 October (BelTA) – The Eurasian Economic Forum, which was held in Italy's Verona for 14 years, has been relocated to Baku this year. The 15th edition of the forum will be held in the capital of Azerbaijan on 27-28 October, BelTA learned from the forum's organizers.

This event brings together politicians, experts, diplomats, company heads and journalists from the West and the East. The forum was held in Italy even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, today's geopolitical realities forced the organizers to change the traditional venue of the forum.

“I am very glad that despite the global uncertainty the 15th edition of the Eurasian Economic Forum will take place, although not in Italy's Verona as usual, but in Baku,”

Antonio Fallico, the founding father of the forum, Chairman of Banca Intesa and President of the Conoscere Eurasia Association, said. “The capital of Azerbaijan was chosen because geographically it is located in the central part of Eurasia between the Atlantic and the Pacific, on the border of Europe and Asia, it used to be a crossroads of trade routes. In the rapidly changing world, this space is coming to play an increasingly important role in maintaining global security and bringing prosperity to the world. Only by joining forces we can build a new human-centered economy. In this regard, business diplomacy plays a key role, as it can promote the common interests of economic development, look for something that unifies rather than separates, find new points of contact and explore new opportunities for cooperation and growth. I am sure that this forum will be able to come up with viable and constructive ideas to promote socio-economic development that will benefit the entire humankind,” he added.

The forum participants will discuss a wide range of practical issues in the field of economy and finance, healthcare, environment, energy and technological innovations in Greater Eurasia. This year the forum will be themed “Eurasia on its path to a new geopolitical, social, and economic order: transition to a new, human-centered economy”. On the first day of the forum, the participants will discuss global energy challenges, European energy security, the role of business in global geopolitics and the creation of a cooperation economy from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

The event is organized by the non-profit organization Conoscere Eurasia Association (Italy), the Roscongress Foundation, the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum with the support of the Ministry of Economy of Azerbaijan.
