Caspian Europe Forum 2022

The current disruptive changes in the Caspian Region confront companies with numerous new challenges. The question of resilience is gaining central importance as an overriding task of sustainable corporate management. Whether in the area of energy and raw material security, or with a view to global supply chains and the supply of food, international cooperation will continue to be necessary to meet these challenges.

For the strategic development of the partnership between Europe and the Caspian region, especially Central Asia, it will be of central importance to what extent it will be possible to anchor cooperation with regard to future issues such as sustainable development, renewable energies, food safety and also health issues both at the corporate level and within the framework of intergovernmental cooperation.

The CASPIAN EUROPE FORUM already promoted this exchange under the difficult conditions of the Corona pandemic in 2020 and 2021, and this year, for the third time in a row, it will make a contribution to actively promoting access to markets, resources, technological potential and, not least, interpersonal exchange together with the countries of the Caspian region and positioning it as a strategic priority in Europe's foreign trade agenda.
