The exchanges and cooperation in the fields of international politics, economy, society and culture are in a complex situation where opportunities and challenges coexist. It is an important mission of the NEXT Summit to be a catalyst for a better world by facilitating cooperation among various actors, such as government institutions, think tanks, industrial associations, financial institutions, social organizations, media, and international organizations, that is, getting the right people in the same room all with a desire to get good things done.
