10AM-12noon 1st session and 13:00 to 15:00 2nd session (Stockholm time, CET)
The rise of China and Asia is an inevitable and unstoppable part of global development. In light of the Belt and Road Initiative and the Global Development Initiative, proposed by China’s President Xi Jinping, there exists a clear foundation for all nations to move in the direction of modernization, infrastructure development and ultimately the complete elimination of poverty.
This is the direction that will lead all humanity forward through technological innovation and cooperation. It is also the basis for defining a stable international security arrangement, in which especially the security concerns of China, Russia, and India are respected as sovereign nation-states, rather than being challenged or viewed as threats to prevailing western interests. The emergence of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa), as a growing forum and alignment for new economic cooperation) is showing the way to new financial and monetary agreements, that are most beneficial for the developing world.
The rise of Asia and China in world history is not reversible, yet it does not and should not pose a threat to European well-being and economic interests. Rather, Swedish and European economic and security interests, are in reality, closely aligned with the Belt and Road Initiative and cross-cultural cooperation. The coming webinar will further discuss and elaborate this theme.
