ASTANA, Kazakhstan, Feb. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - Organisers of the annual Astana Economic Forum have issued a challenge to international experts and United Nations Member States to contribute proposals and recommendations to the draft World Anti-Crisis Plan before it is debated and adopted in the Kazakhstan capital in May.
Submissions are invited by 15 March 2014 from government agencies, non-governmental organizations, research centers, think tanks, economic and financial experts, as well as the business and scientific communities. In order to find more information on the World Anti-Crisis Plan Project and submit recommendations, please follow the link: http://www.group-global.org/en/page/view/516
Their ideas will be incorporated into the World Anti-Crisis Plan and the authors of the best contributions will be invited to attend the second World Anti-Crisis Conference (II WAC), to be held in Astana on 21-23 May in conjunction with the Astana Economic Forum. The purpose of the Conference is to approve the Plan.
The World Anti-Crisis Project stems from an appeal by the President of Kazakhstan in December 2011 to launch a 'G-Global' initiative to coordinate efforts to deal with continuing global instability and turbulence in financial markets and the impact on economic development.
The Project was developed by the Kazakhstan-based Eurasian Economic Club of Scientists Association and the Reinventing Bretton Woods Committee, supported by the United Nations General Assembly.
Thus the first World Anti-Crisis Conference was held in Astana in May 2013 with the participation of 104 United Nations Member States at the level of ministers of economy and finance, together with Central Bank Governors.
The Conference drew up the Astana Declaration and the main directions of the World Anti-Crisis Plan project developed by the consideration and proposals of the world expert community, UN member states and UN Secretariat.
The Astana Declaration and directions of first World Anti-Crisis Plan were welcomed to the UN General Assembly's 68th session in September/October 2013 and were welcomed with the adoption of a UN Resolution entitled "International financial system and development".
The preparatory work has already been substantial, involving participants from 160 countries. The G-Global communications platform has assembled 10,000 research papers, 35,000 expert views and comments, as well as more than 210 video-conferences held online.
The revised draft of the Plan is now based on two tracks: International Financial Architecture and Development. It will be forwarded to all United Nations Member States and international organisations with a view to its adoption at the second World Anti-Crisis Conference in Astana in May.
