Singapore, December 13-14, 2016

A regional policy-dialogue conference of the Valdai Discussion Club (in partnership with the Centre on Asia and Globalization of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore) will be held in Singapore on December 13-14. The topic –"New Institutions for Growth in Asia and Eurasia: What Mission for Russia? – will be discussed as a new international order in Asia-Pacific, linked to the results of the US presidential election and other developments over the past months, is taking shape. The region’s states are seeking for ways to consensus and trying to define a new agenda for cooperation. The role of the Russian Federation, whose turn to the East has acquired its own dynamism, is intriguing.

The success of Russia and its regional partners can bring more peace and prosperity to Asia and Eurasia. Russia has much to share with Asia: natural resources; energy industry; military-industrial complex; space exploration; agricultural production; secure transit routes to Europe; along with its commitment to the idea of multipolar world and international law. Russia should use every opportunity to communicate with regional political and business leaders in order to better understand what is expected from Moscow and how it can meet these expectations in the most beneficial ways, as well as the prospects of its participation in international investment and political projects.

The event will be attended by 30-40 prominent members of the expert community, retired politicians and business people from Russia, China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and other countries. It will include a special session on the prospects of synergy between Russian new technologies and Asian markets, organized in partnership with the Russian Venture Company.
