The international conference in 2020 is being held for the second year in a row. However, the history of holding international topical events on the basis of the Institute of World Economy (IMEB) of the RUDN University goes back many years. Until 2019, they had the status of international conferences. Each year, the IMEB acted as a platform for discussing the most pressing issues of the global economy.
The boom in demand for digital technologies is a new global reality. The growing demand for digital innovation is observed in almost all areas: education, healthcare, finance, entertainment, management and business organization. In the plenary session, speakers will discuss the impact of the pandemic on various areas of international economic cooperation and identify the main directions for increasing the role and demand for digital technologies.
