Economic connectivity is a main feature of current globalised societies, characterised by an increasing multiplicity of both political and economic interactions, while playing a key role since ancient times. Historically, the most illustrative example of economic connectivity is the Silk Road, which helped developing durable economic and political ties between civilizations in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Economic connectivity has the potential to increase opportunities for improved economic relations between (and within) states and is one of the major drivers for economic development.
Economic Diplomacy and Connectivity workshop
Among participants of the workshop were the representatives of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, Austrian Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs, Friedrich Ebert Foundation, German Institute for International and Security Affairs and University of Birmingham.
