On June 29, the Valdai Club held an online presentation of a new report, titled “The World of Platforms: From Corporations to Regions”.
The platform business model prevails today among the largest global companies. The authors of the Club’s new report believe that platform effects can be observed not only at the corporate level, but also implemented as a strategy at the country level and in relation to regional integration projects. Among the main regions of the global economy, the Asia-Pacific is seen as one of the prototypes of the platform for integration projects by combining numerous integration projects in the region.
The new report by the Valdai Club examines the emergence of platforms in the corporate world, and the prospects for the formation of platform alliances in different countries and regions.
How relevant has the creation of digital platforms been for the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) in recent years? What are the trends in the development of digital corporate platforms in leading countries, including China, the USA, Russia and other countries? What are the benefits, dividends and risks that accompany the building of digital corporate platforms and ecosystems in the global economy? What is the foreign experience in the formation of digital platforms at the regional level? These and other questions were answered by the participants of the online presentation.
