The panel aims to examine the current geopolitical changes in Eurasia, regarding the value chains, the global trade relations and the distinction of the global and regional solutions of the actual challenges. One of the main questions of the discussion is whether globalization or regionalisation will be more influential in the next decades, and which will serve better the competitiveness and the active cooperation of the Eurasian nations?

PANEL 4. ECONOMY: Success in unchartered waters: How can businesses gain ground in 21st-century Eurasian markets?

PANEL 4. ECONOMY: Success in unchartered waters: How can businesses gain ground in 21st-century Eurasian markets?

For decades, the rise of Asia has been seen as a huge opportunity, so it is time to analyse how these benefits can be reaped. What are the key factors for European exports and outward investments to succeed in the emerging markets? The question is all the more crucial as the economic, digital and sustainable transformation of Asia involves the quick development of consumer markets and many new infrastructure projects. Several needs arise in many parts of Asia to create brand new physical and digital infrastructure which is efficient, smart and carbon-neutral at the same time. This can be the solution for enhancing competitiveness to overcome the triple crisis of our times, i.e., the supply chain, health and geopolitical crisis. Thus, the key question is what the best strategies are to benefit from the opportunities.
