Massimo Deandreis, SRM Director, has been speaker at the Astana Economic Forum, the flagship business event in Eurasia.
The theme of the upcoming XII edition hold on May 16-17 was “Inspiring growth: people, cities, economies“. The world has entered a new era of the fourth industrial revolution: natural resources and geographic locations are no longer a priority. Instead, the ‘technological efficiency’ of the economy, the level of urban development and the quality of human capital now take precedence. The success of the state in the modern world is determined by the readiness of government institutions and citizens for a new reality.
Since the launch of the AEF eleven years ago, the event has become one of the most influential international platforms for discussing issues of the world economy and the financial system. Over 50,000 delegates participated in the forum from 150 countries, including more than 20 Nobel laureates and 30 high-level foreign political figures. As a result of previous Forums, more than 300 memorandums and agreements have been signed.
