On December 7-8, the Valdai Discussion Club will host the 12th Asian Conference, titled “Russia and Asia in a Changing World Order”. The event will take place at the Club’s conference hall, at Tsvetnoy Boulevard 16/1, Moscow, Russia.
This year, the Asian Valdai conference will be held mainly in full-time format, with the participation of more than 30 experts from 10 countries (China, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mongolia, Pakistan, the Republic of Korea, Russia, Singapore and Vietnam). Some of the speakers will take part online.
The theme of this year’s conference is related to the transformation that the world community is going through. The international order that emerged after the end of the Cold War is over — a new one is emerging before our eyes. Asia is playing the central role in changing the global balance of power and is the main platform for global change.
Among the main topics to be discussed by Valdai Club experts are the “closure” of China, the establishment of the AUKUS military bloc on Asia’s periphery, the adaptation of Asian countries to new epidemiological conditions, the situation in Afghanistan, and much more.
