Budapest Eurasia Forum 2020
The Budapest Eurasia Forum 2020 E-Conference was the second event of the Budapest Eurasia Forum event series, which began its journey in 2019. The concept reflects to MNB’s efforts towards increasing its involvement in the international dialogue and enhance the professional cooperation among various members of the economic community.
Located in the heart of Europe, Hungary is well-positioned to serve as an intellectual hub for experts from various countries and increase its contribution to the cooperation between Europe and Asia. In line with this concept the Budapest Eurasia Forum event series intends to serve as high level professional platform for academics, decision-makers, and business leaders from across Eurasia. The Pre-Forum Session of the Budapest Eurasia Forum was successfully organised in October 2019 with the participation of high-ranking experts from China, Russia, Singapore, and Kazakhstan, among others.
The unprecedented challenges of 2020 highlighted the importance of global solidarity and cooperation, therefore strengthened our belief that the dialogue should continue despite the hurdles caused by the pandemic. As a result, the Budapest Eurasia Forum was organised in a digital format in 2020, on 27th October. The E-Conference was titled “Eurasian cooperation in the post-pandemic era” and it included a high-level opening ceremony, followed by 3 professional panels. The panel topics recalled the core areas of the Forum concept, such as geopolitics, multilateral cooperation, finance, economics, innovation, education, and connectivity.
