At the initiative of the Department of Economics and Competition Policy, a student roundtable discussion "New Economic World Order: Threats and Opportunities" was held at the State University of Trade and Economics on November 2, 2023. The purpose of the roundtable was to publish, discuss, and summarize the results of the student youth scientific research on the impact of digitization, geopolitical changes, global economic fragmentation, and the Russian-Ukrainian war on the transformation of the economic world order, the industry structure of the global economy, and national economies.
Students were significantly interested in the topic. Twenty-seven students of first to third-year SUTE, representing the Faculty of Economics, Management, and Psychology, the Faculty of Trade and Marketing, and the Faculty of International Trade and Law, made their presentations.
In their opening remarks to the participants of the roundtable, Anzhelika Gerasymenko, the Vice-rector for Research, Pedagogical Activities and International Relations of SUTE, and Yurii Umantsiv, the Head of the Department of Economics and Competition Policy, emphasized on the relevance of the topic in the context of complex geopolitical and geoeconomic transformations.
The presentations covered a wide range of issues, from the theoretical conceptualization of the new economic global order to the finding of ways and mechanisms for a more equitable distribution of global wealth. Presentations were dedicated to the comprehensive analysis of Ukraine's role and position in the new globalized world, as well as the deep social and economic consequences of the full-scale Russian aggression on the global system.
The moderators of the roundtable, associate professors at the Department of Economics and Competition Policy, Vladyslav Bolhov and Tatyana Ozhelevskaya, summarized the results of the roundtable's work. They emphasized on the high level of preparation of the students' scientific presentations, their relevance, depth, and also highlighted the participants' patriotism and strong civic positions.
We express gratitude to all the participants for their interesting presentations and lively discussions, as well as wish them further scientific achievements!
