The 25th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will change that.
By Edward Slavsquat
L’Oligarchic Burning Man by Klaus Schwab ended last week and everyone had fun predicting how many people would starve to death in the next twelve months. Everyone except Russian oligarchs and Kremlin apparatchiks who have been grossly excluded from this year’s festivities, due to the sanctions.
Do not worry. Russia has its own Davos – the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum – and this year’s agenda will nuke the Federal Reserve.
First thing: if you want to come to this fancy conference, you have to test negative.
You don’t have any viruses? Good. Here is a sample of the “business program” which will begin on June 16:
- FAKE NEWS IN THE ERA OF GLOBALIZATION June 16, 15:00-16:15
Of the fake news on the dreaded Virus, oh no! What should be done ?
The problem of fakes is particularly pronounced in troubled times, such as that of COVID-19 and a tense geopolitical situation – people make rash decisions based on unreliable information, and the consequences can be severe, even fatal. . Society was unprepared for the resulting deluge of fakes and was unable to critically assess fake news on such a scale as a direct result of a polluted information environment. Everyone’s digital literacy needs to be improved, from schoolchildren to the elderly, if we want to create a safe digital environment. This includes getting the industry to self-regulate, as in the Anti-Misleading Information Memorandum. Who creates and disseminates the fakes? How do they influence government policy? How can fakes lead to deaths? And what do the statistics on fakes look like in the special operation in Ukraine?
- THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CLIMATE AGENDA IN KEY EURASIAN ECONOMIES 16 June, 17:00-18:15
Russian business leaders are concerned about climate change:
A common climate agenda should be one of the unifying projects in a region as diverse as Eurasia. Today, economic cooperation must be developed within the framework of the climate agenda, in part with the aim of achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, including approaches and necessary mechanisms based on the principles of the EAEU functioning as a single market.
Realizing Greater Eurasia’s unique potential to achieve climate goals will require quick solutions to a number of practical issues: reaching political consensus on key areas of cooperation; prevent negative socio-economic effects, such as the widening of the gap between developed and developing nations and the emergence of barriers to trade and investment; find a balance in public-private partnerships in green financing to stimulate technological transformation, including through extra-budgetary funds; creating a basis for the free movement of carbon units within the EAEU and further integration with major trading partners; and facilitating the availability of technologies that help reduce emissions and ensure low-carbon development and efficient and sustainable use of fossil resources.
Given the current geopolitical situation, is the climate agenda at the center of economic collaboration? How do issues such as accelerated import substitution relate to low-carbon development goals? How to ensure the financing of the technological transition? Are the sources of funding clear, and how can the gap be bridged with the true scale of investment needed? How can we move low-carbon technologies from an area of competition to an area of cooperation? Is an international climate technology bank a real possibility?
That’s an excellent question: Is an international climate technology bank a real possibility? This is the first question I would ask if I was organizing a business conference in a country that has just severed all ties with the degenerate West.
- VACCINE PRODUCTION: INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN THE NAME OF HEALTH June 16, 11:00-12:15
Russian business leaders are also determined to ensure that everyone is vaccinated, forever:
Advances made over the past decades in biotechnology, immunology, molecular biology and other related disciplines have enabled the move to improved next-generation vaccines. The issues in this area are to ensure mass vaccination and to create a strong evidence base for effective and safe innovative approaches. However, new challenges have arisen due to the emergence of previously unknown infections and the spread of infectious epidemics globally. In the current geopolitical situation, Russia must avoid a setback in the development and production of vaccines and maintain the development potential of the industry.
The global pharmaceutical community must rely on the humanitarian aspect and consolidate the international potential for the development of effective tools for alerting infectious threats in order to prevent their impact on the socio-economic life of the planet. How can Russia best harness its potential to ensure the nation’s biosecurity in the face of new challenges? What innovative developments in the field of vaccinations can have an impact on the management of biosecurity risks around the world? Is the global community ready to maintain the paradigm of united efforts in the face of the threat posed by infectious epidemics? What role does Russia play as an international partner in preventing new and re-emerging infectious threats in the face of new challenges?
If we read between the lines, it is further proof that the Russian government is a few days away from denouncing WHO-sponsored vaccine terrorism.
- THE SANITARY SHIELD: INVESTMENT IN DEVELOPMENT June 17, 10:00-11:15
Russia continues to implement its “health shield”, a virus control system. The oligarchs believe this could be a great source of business :
The prevention of threats to the health of the population has become one of the fundamental factors for sustainable economic and social development. A month of confinement can lead to zero growth in the economy for the year, not to mention the flow of external restrictions that affect the exchange rate and the volatility of the ruble, as well as threats to epidemiological security emanating from the activities of countries hostile.
Investments in strengthening the country’s “health shield” will not only prevent potential losses in the event of new pandemics, but should also help develop related industries and stimulate technological breakthroughs and import substitution in the field of health products. biotechnologies. Government investment in a “health shield” has a multiplier effect by attracting additional investment in science, biotechnology development, test and vaccine production, laboratory instrumentation, and industry development. design and construction specialist, which plays an important role during the period of prohibitive sanctions, when import substitution and increased production of Russian products become the only option to develop and protect the country.
The search for specialists will create the necessary conditions for the development of human resources in the fields of genetic technologies, bioinformatics, epidemiology and microbiology. What kind of effect do investments in biohazard preparedness have on development? What new tools will the “health shield” provide to protect against epidemics? How can investments in the fight against epidemics be converted into the development of science, industry and education? What role do industrial partners play? How will the “health shield” contribute to import substitution? In what specific areas of biosafety can Russia become a leader and create standards? What mechanisms are needed to multiply investments in the “health shield”?
So many good questions.
By the way, who is the main sponsor of this multipolar event? Come on, you know that.
But will Sber CEO Herman Gref give a big talk on Kabbalah like he did at the 2012 conference? We hope :
[Lors] Petersburg International Economic Forum 2012, Sberbank CEO Herman Gref decided to liven up the conversation with some ancient occult wisdom. Mr. Gref – who a year earlier had been elected to the board of directors of the World Economic Forum – moderated a panel discussion at the annual conference titled “Breaking Management’s Deadlock: The Wisdom of Crowds or the authoritative genius? »
The conversation quickly degenerated into a succession of hackneyed cliches and boilerplate monologues about “the crowdsourcing of the future” and blah blah blah.
Gref decided to intervene.
“You say terrible things,” he told the participants. “You are proposing to put power back in the hands of the people… If each person can participate directly in management, then what are we managing? »
Citing the teachings of Confucius and the mysticism of Kabbalah, he reminded everyone of the millennial tradition of hiding the truth from the untrustworthy masses.
“People don’t want to be manipulated when they have knowledge. What does it mean to lift the veil from the eyes of millions of people and empower them? How to manage them? Any control of the masses involves an element of manipulation,” Mr. Gref observed.
(Don’t worry, he was “joking.”)
It should be a big event. Unfortunately, Klaus will not be present. Maybe next year ?
