The 25th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will change that.
According to Edward Slavsquat
L ‘Oligarchic Burning Man by Klaus Schwab ended last week, and everyone was amused by predicting how many people would starve to death in the next twelve months. Everyone except the Russian oligarchs and the Kremlin apparatchiks, who were severely excluded from this year’s festivities due to sanctions.
Do not worry. Russia has its own Davos – St. Petersburg International Economic Forum – and this year’s program will be a nuclear war for the Federal Reserve.
First thing: if you want to come to this luxury conference, you have to be tested negative.
Don’t you have any viruses? Good. Here is a sample of the “business program” that begins on June 16:
- FAKE NEWS IN THE ERA OF GLOBALIZATION June 16, 15: 00-16: 15
of fake news on the dreaded virus, oh no! what needs to be done?
The problem of counterfeiting is particularly acute in troubled times such as COVID-19 and the tense geopolitical situation – people make hasty decisions based on unreliable information and the consequences can be serious, even fatal. The company was not prepared for the resulting flood of counterfeits and was unable to critically assess fake news on such a scale as a direct result of the polluted information environment. If we want to create a secure digital environment, we need to improve the digital literacy of everyone, from schoolchildren to seniors. This includes forcing industry to self-regulate, as in the Anti-Misleading Memorandum. Who creates and distributes counterfeits? How do they affect government policy? How can counterfeits lead to death? And what do the statistics on counterfeits in the special operation in Ukraine look like?
- THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CLIMATE AGENDA IN KEY EURASI ECONOMICS 16 June, 17: 00-18: 15
Russian business leaders are concerned about climate change :
The 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, partly in order to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals, including approaches and the necessary mechanisms based on the principles of the functioning of the EAEU as a single market.
Recognizing Greater Eurasia’s unique potential to achieve climate goals will require rapid solutions to a number of practical challenges: reaching political consensus in key areas of cooperation; prevent negative socio-economic impacts, such as widening the gap between developed and developing countries and creating barriers to trade and investment; to find a balance in public-private partnerships in the field of green financing in order 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 the efficient and sustainable use of fossil resources.
Given the current geopolitical situation, is the climate agenda at the heart of economic cooperation? How do issues such as accelerated import substitution relate to low-carbon development goals? How to secure the financing of the technological transition? Are the sources of funding clear and how can the gap be bridged by the actual amount of investment needed? How can we move low carbon technologies from competition to collaboration? Is the International Climate Technology Bank a real option?
That’s a great question: Is the International Climate Technology Bank a real option? This is the first question I would ask if I organized a trade 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 secure that everyone is vaccinated, forever :
Advances in recent decades in biotechnology, immunology, molecular biology, and other related disciplines have enabled the transition to improved next-generation vaccines. In this area, it is a matter of ensuring mass vaccination and creating a strong evidence base for effective and safe innovative approaches. However, new challenges have emerged due to the emergence of previously unknown infections and the global spread of infectious epidemics. In the current geopolitical situation, Russia must avoid failure in the development and production of vaccines and maintain the development potential of industry.
The global pharmaceutical community must rely on the humanitarian dimension and strengthen its international potential to develop effective tools for warning of infectious threats in order to prevent their impact on the socio-economic life of the planet. How can Russia make the most of its potential to ensure the nation’s biosecurity in the face of new challenges? What innovative developments in vaccination can have an impact on biosecurity risk management worldwide? Is the global community prepared to maintain the paradigm of united effort 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, this is further proof that the Russian government is a few days away from the condemnation of the WHO-sponsored vaccination terrorism.
- SANITARY SHIELD: INVESTMENT IN DEVELOPMENT June 17, 10: 00-11: 15
Russia continues to implement its “health shield”, a virus control system. The oligarchs think it could be great resource business :
Prevention of threats to the health of the population has become one of the basic factors of sustainable economic and social development. The month of imprisonment can lead to zero economic growth per year, not to mention the flow of external restrictions that affect the exchange rate and ruble volatility, as well as threats to epidemiological security stemming from the activities of hostile countries. .
Investing 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 substitutions in medical products. Government investment in the “health shield” has a multiplier effect by attracting further investment in science, biotechnology development, test and vaccine production, laboratory equipment and industrial development. a specialist in design and construction, who plays an important role in the period of prohibition sanctions, when import substitution and increased production of Russian products become the only options for development and protection of the country.
The search for specialists will create the necessary conditions for the development of human resources in the areas of genetic technologies, bioinformatics, epidemiology and microbiology. What impact do biohazard preparedness investments have on development? What new tools will the “health shield” provide to protect against epidemics? How can investment in the fight against epidemics turn into the development of science, industry and education? What role do industrial partners play? How will the “health shield” help replace imports? In what specific areas of biosafety can Russia become a leader and set standards? What mechanisms are needed to multiply investment in the “health shield”?
So many good questions.
By the way, who is the main sponsor of this multipolar event? Come on, you know.
But will Sber CEO Herman Gref give a big talk on Kabbalah like at a conference in 2012? We hope so :
[Lors] Petersburg International Economic Forum 2012, Sberbank CEO Herman Gref decided to revive the conversation with ancient occult wisdom. Mr. Gref – who was elected to the board of the World Economic Forum a year earlier – hosted a rounded table during the annual conference entitled “How to Get Out of Management’s Dead End: Crowd Wisdom or Authoritarian Genius? »
The conversation quickly degenerated into a series of clichés and standard monologues about the “crowdsourcing of the future,” and blah blah blah.
Gref a decided to intervene.
“You say terrible things,” he told the participants. “Are you proposing to put power back in the hands of the people … If everyone can be directly involved in the management, then what do we manage? »
Referring to Confucius’ teachings and the mysticism of Kabbalah, he reminded everyone of the millennial tradition of hiding the truth from the untrustworthy masses.
“People do not want to be manipulated when they have knowledge. What does it mean to take the veil off the eyes of millions and strengthen them? How to manage them? Any control of the masses involves an element of manipulation, “remarked Mr. Gref.
(Don’t worry, “he joked.”)
It should be a big event. Unfortunately, Klaus will not be present. Maybe next year ?
