After skipping the 2020 edition due to COVID-19, Imperial Springs International Forum returns this year in a hybrid format focused on Multilateralism 2.0: Global Cooperation in the Post-Pandemic Era. All organisers believe this is a vital issue at this unprecedented moment in time when national interests and great power rivalries have been seriously undermining international cooperation and the multilateral system.
Club de Madrid and its partners – the Australia-China Exchange and Friendship Association, the Chinese People´s Association of Friendship with Foreign Countries and the Provincial Government of Guangzhou – are convinced of the importance of maintaining this unique platform of dialogue between Chinese and international leaders and scholars.
This year’s Forum will gather more than 15 Club de Madrid Members and more than 40 international experts, all of whom will connect remotely. Chinese political and thought leaders will be participating from Imperial Springs.
