11:30 – 13:30 What We Know and Don’t Know About the World of Tomorrow. Open Discussion
The open discussion, traditional for Valdai Club conferences, serves to engage all experts participating in the conference in free and dynamic exchange of opinions on topical issues of international and regional development. The following questions were discussed:
1) How irreversible are the processes of de-globalisation?
2) What do we want to preserve in the international order and what should we abandon?
3) What new and perhaps potentially extremely significant factors and trends in the world economy and politics are we not yet paying due attention to?
4) What opportunities do we expect from 2023?
