5th east forum Berlin
The future of European and Eurasian partnership: Rebuilding trust. Defining drivers. Overcoming barriers.
Every year, the east forum Berlin gathers high-ranking opinion leaders from the worlds of politics and business in the East and West to discuss challenges and opportunities for an economic area from Lisbon to Vladivostok and beyond.
The overall aim of the east forum Berlin is to facilitate dialogue in order to overcome barriers to trade and promote prosperity in the region extending from the Atlantic to the Pacific, exchange know-how and intensify international networks. In addition, this international event is a great opportunity to present Berlin as a vibrant location of political and economic debate, of investment and as an exciting cultural hub.
Under the title “The future of European and Eurasian partnership: Rebuilding trust. Defining drivers. Overcoming barriers”, the 5th east forum Berlin takes place in a time of synchrony of both divergence and convergence: On the one hand, the area is shattered by persisting conflicts, protectionism and fragmentation, creating a “new normal” across the region. On the other hand, we experience the power of the digital revolution, which ignores national borders by fostering cooperation, connectivity and cross-border trade within Europe and Eurasia, opening up new perspectives for building common roads to growth.
The east forum Berlin is the dialogue platform initiated by UniCredit, the Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations (Ost-Ausschuss der Deutschen Wirtschaft) and METRO GROUP. The German Association of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), the German Business Federation (BDI) and Schaeffler Group are cooperation partners.
