(International Conference, Berlin; March 4th – 7th, 2015)
The Berlin Economic Forum is the world’s leading global conference combining the fields of International Economics and Relations, Nation Branding and Cultural Diplomacy with an interdisciplinary and multinational program. The inauguration of the event took place in November 2014 in Berlin and is a part of a series of a 10 year program of projects and initiatives, which aim to further promote sustainable economies worldwide.
The onset of the 2008 global financial crisis together with the growing economic influence of the process of globalization has prompted the emergence of creative economies, and sustainable tourism, while further developing a new agenda for socially responsible foreign investments in both industrialized and developing countries. Promising to generate sustainable economic growth through the creation of jobs and the innovation of trade, creative industries, sustainable tourism and socially responsible foreign investments can simultaneously occupy a central role in promoting and maintaining economic equalities, cultural diversity, social inclusion and environmental sustainability. The effects are thus two-fold, delivering both sustainable economic and socio-cultural benefits.
