On June 16, at 11:00 Moscow time (GMT+3), the Valdai Discussion Club hosted an international Asian conference online, titled “Prospects for a New Bipolarity and its Impact on the Asia-Pacific Region”.
How do the Asia-Pacific countries assess the newly-emerging risks? How can their negative consequences be minimised? What should we learn from each other, given our experiences, including the Cold War of the 20th century, and what impact will the emerging global trends have on established areas of interaction and development in Asia?
