Eurasian Economic Summit to discuss technology vs politics
The Marmara Group Foundation will hold the 21st Eurasian Economic Summit with its partners on April 11-12 to discuss the relationship between technology and politics, bringing together current and former statesmen, business people, opinion leaders, NGOs and religious representatives from all over the world.
“As a modest non-governmental organization, we will carry out the Eurasian Economic Summit, which is regarded as an internationally accepted event that has been continuously held for 33 years,” Marmara Group Foundation president Akkan Suver said at an Istanbul press conference on March 21.
“Under this years’ main topic ‘The dilemma of our century: Technology vs. politics,’ we will open up discussions with statesmen, business people, academics, clergymen and young people,” he said.
“This dilemma is a common concern for all of us in terms of peace, stability, economy and future. We will debate this,” Suver said.
“Meanwhile, we are considering our summit as an opportunity for the correct expression and presentation of the terrorist incidents we have been living in and the successful and justified Afrin campaign,” he said, referring to the Turkish military operation in neighboring Syria.
Another session of the event will address the impact of gender equality along with the development of technology under the heading “The mind blowing expectations of women.”
The summit has been held together with the Istanbul Ready-Made Garment Exporters’ Association (İHKİB) since 2003. The İHKİB will organize a fashion show at the gala on the night of the summit, where designer Dilek Hanif’s works will be displayed.
Former İHKİB presidents Nuri Artok and Süleyman Orakçıoğlu and Vice President Mustafa Gültepe also participated in the press conference. Suver said Montenegro, Macedonia, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and Bosnia and Herzegovina will be represented at the level of president at the 21st Eurasian Economic Summit.
