Opening of the Valdai Club's Eighth Asian Regional Conference

On November 27, 2017, the eighth Asian regional conference of the Valdai Discussion Club, organized in partnership with the Korea Institute for International Economic Policy (KIEP), kicked off in Seoul. At the opening ceremony, the Valdai Club chairman Andrei Bystritskiy said that the Club has been the intellectual flagship of Russia’s “turn to the East” and the construction of a large Eurasian space. He urged all participants to discuss actively not only the numerous existing threats, but also the opportunities for cooperation and “co-creation” between all countries.
