The conference aims to initiate and facilitate a dialogue between government officials, experts and businesses from Taiwan and the wider V4 region on some of the most imminent threats Central Europe is facing after the pandemic. The current global crisis has underlined how globalised societies are unprepared to face major shocks, such as the pandemic. New disruptions arose as the fight against the virus intensified, such as democratic decision-making, the reliability of science and information, a decrease in public trust and ultimately, the resilience of our society. At the same time, we hope it will contribute to finding solutions on how to restructure supply chains to make them more reliable and less vulnerable to large-scale shocks, and how to bolster countries’ economic growth and boost recovery from the pandemic.

Dr Jaushieh Joseph Wu, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of China (Taiwan), will join us in person to deliver a keynote speech during the conference. The session will be followed by two panel discussions, the first will focus on the Resilience in Post-pandemic World and the second on the Global Economic Cooperation and Supply Chains.
