ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The conference of the ''Belgrade Strategic Dialogue'' entitled ''The World after Coronavirus'' will be held on May 29, 2020 at the premises of ''Klub Poslanika'' restaurant (2 Tolstojeva St, Belgrade). The Conference, opened by the President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić, will be devoted to analyzing geopolitical, economic and healthcare aspects of coronavirus.
The conference will provide high-ranking state officials of the Republic of Serbia, representatives of the diplomatic corps and prominent economic and healthcare experts with an opportunity to discuss an entire spectrum of challenges that the coronavirus pandemic has posed, not only to Serbia, but also to the population worldwide, and to shed light on the problem of the pandemic and its still unknown long-term consequences, through an exchange of arguments in an atmosphere of debate.
Unfortunately, the challenges the whole world is facing today are yet another confirmation of the need for an open discussion on international cooperation and collective responses to global challenges, within a platform such as this one, offered by the Belgrade Strategic Dialogue.
