East Forum 2009 – A new global governance for sustainable growth
On June 25, UniCredit Group and "east" - review on culture, politics and economics - will be holding the forth East Forum on "A new global governance for sustainable growth".
Almost two years from the emergence of the first signs preceding the deterioration of the world economic scenario, the scale and the depth of the current crisis are now becoming increasingly clearer. Although the crisis originated in the financial arena, it soon spread to the real economy, propagating globally with total disregard for geographical or political borders.
The institutional structure designed with the Bretton Woods agreements, and the international fora, which over the years have brought together the leading world powers, have proved insufficiently representative and not robust enough to adequately manage and coordinate an increasingly globalised and complex economic and financial system.
The Forum will be organised around three Round Tables, involving a significant number of qualified speakers.
The first session entitled "Governance in the 20th century: principles and inspiring values", will look at the limitations, as well as the values that the current international system of Governance was built upon, putting it into the context of the historic era in which it originated and which saw it evolve.
The second Round Table, entitled "Lessons from the crisis", will concentrate on an analysis of the consequences of the current economic and financial crisis and on the link between the present situation and the limitations of governance at world level.
The last panel "Tomorrow's governance?", will look towards the future, encouraging debate on what model of governance and economic growth to seek for the coming years.
As such, the importance of a new global governance, will be the key topic of discussion on June 25 at Spazio Roma Eventi.
Featuring among the high-profile panel of speakers will be: Alessandro Profumo, CEO of UniCredit Group; Robert Wescott, President of Keybridge Research LLC; Rainer Masera, Member of the "de Larosière Group"; Lorenzo Bini Smaghi, Member of the Executive Board of the European Central Bank; Arkady Dvorkovich, Economic Advisor to the President of Russia, Sherpa G8; conclusions will be given by Jean Paul Fitoussi, President of the Observatoire Français des Conjonctures Economiques
The East Forum will therefore once again confirm its standing as a permanent forum of debate between representatives of European and International institutions, businessmen, academics, and civil society aimed at evaluating, analysing, and making proposals on the future of Europe.
