In the past decade, we have witnessed how different sets of events can trigger global economic changes. From the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis to today’s increasing number of political and conflict-related shocks, no nation’s economy has proven resistant to these changes. The complexity of interactions between economic and political factors has increased and these elements ought to be incorporated into future policies.

A new development agenda should carry forward the spirit of active response to changes, seeking an answer to the questions of what should and can be done to anticipate changes and transform economies for the better. Practical focus of the Conference is highlighting the agenda of challenges, topics of migrations, national security, poverty, education, economic growth and healthcare to fulfil our vision of promoting sustainable development worldwide.
