This will be the Forum's second meeting in the capital of Kazakhstan.
It moved here for the first time last October, after a decade of
annual conferences in Almaty, the country's commercial hub.
Dariga Nazarbayeva, the Forum's founder and chair of the Organising
Committee, will welcome delegates old and new - political analysts,
economists and media specialists - to two days of debate on the most
pressing issues affecting East-West relations.
The programme this year will again feature a stimulating combination of
international and regional topics. In particular it is expected to
include sessions on religious tolerance, economic and food security in
the region and worldwide, the green economy, the financial crisis in
Western countries and the outlook for further integration in the CIS.
"We hope the discussions in the Forum will make a fresh contribution
towards shaping the global intellectual answer to the challenges of the
21st century," Dr Nazarbayeva declared.
The Forum was launched in 2002, in the aftermath of the attacks on
Manhattan and Washington. Its aim was to improve public understanding
of complex problems, with the help of the media. Over the years it has
acquired a distinguished reputation, especially in the international
media community, as a unique platform for East-West dialogue.
The organising team remains convinced that it helps to meet an actual
need to facilitate further joint efforts by leading journalists,
specialists and public figures to resolve crucial geopolitical issues.
The full list of speakers will be announced closer to the event.
Prominent participants at past sessions have included former Iranian
President Mohammad Khatami, ex-Russian Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov,
former United States National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski and
former Supreme Allied Commander Europe General Wesley K. Clark
