Islamabad (Adnan Hameed): Central Asia’s leading international conference, the Astana International Forum (AIF), is set to take place on the 13th and 14th of June 2024. The event, under the aegis of the President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, aims to provide a critical platform for the international community to unite in the face of global challenges to security, stability, and prosperity.

Building on the success of the inaugural Forum in 2023, this year’s event is expected to draw over 5,000 participants from more than 50 countries, including heads of state, policymakers, business leaders, and public intellectuals. The Forum’s programme will focus on four pillars: Foreign Policy and International Security, International Development and Sustainability, Energy and Climate Change, and Economy and Finance.

President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, commenting on the launch of the second Astana International Forum, emphasized the importance of cooperation and mutual respect in an era marked by polarization and fragmentation. He expressed pride in Kazakhstan’s role in protecting and enhancing the international system through the Astana International Forum.

The Astana International Forum 2024 is a significant milestone for Kazakhstan, as the country is set to chair several leading international organizations this year. These include the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the Conference on Interaction and Confidence-Building Measures in Asia, the Organisation of Turkic States, the Islamic Food Security Organisation, and the International Fund for Saving the Aral Sea.

Registration for the event is now open. Interested parties can sign up at the official Astana International Forum website: https://astanainternationalforum.org/
