[pubdate: 21.05.2018, 15:36:40, published by: Баспасөз-орталығы]

The XI Astana Economic Forum Global Challenges Summit (“Global Challenges Summit”) took place in the capital of Kazakhstan on May 17-19. This year, it was based on global trends: economic growth and resource sustainability, digitalization and urbanization, longevity and the financial revolution, global security and a cultural shift.

The forum was attended by more than 500 speakers and 5000 participants from 111 countries. Among the speakers are the eighth UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, co-founder of Apple Steve Wozniak, former French President Francois Olland, film director Kshishtof Zanussi, director of the Asian Bank for Infrastructure Investments Tzin Lutzin and many others.

The forum was opened by the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev.

– The current forum is aimed at finding effective responses to global challenges. Today, historical time has reached unprecedented density. The world is changing at an incredible speed, once again in front of the fork. From where he will turn, it depends what the humanity expects: the epoch of prosperity or the period of stagnation, “said the head of state.

Nursultan Nazarbayev singled out the five major megatrends of the planet’s development: the digitalization of all aspects of humanity’s activity, the energy revolution of the world’s movement towards clean energy, the rapid growth of the world’s population, the change in the pace and nature of urbanization, and the transformation of the global labor market.

The forum has long been an international platform, connecting economic thought, idea and practice. For 10 years, more than fifty thousand delegates from 150 countries of the world took part in the event. The effect of the forum is from attracting international investors to the exchange of new ideas for the formation of an economic policy agenda in the country and in the world.
