Kazakhstan will host the Astana International Forum in June to discuss global challenges.

The Astana International Forum (AIF), aimed at discussing key global challenges, will be held in the capital of Kazakhstan on June 8-9. This was announced on Tuesday by the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Kazakhstan.

"While the international community is moving towards an era of growing polarization and geopolitical division, Kazakhstan is launching a new dialogue platform — the Astana International Forum in order to unite efforts to solve key global challenges. The forum will be held under the auspices of the President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Tokayev on June 8-9, 2023 in Astana," the message reads.

It was noted that the Astana International Forum was preceded by the success of the Astana Economic Forum. Its concept was developed to address four key global issues: foreign policy, security and sustainability, energy and climate, as well as economics and finance.

"Today, all over the world, we are facing historical challenges, the likes of which we have not had the opportunity to meet for several decades or more. These challenges exert unprecedented pressure on the international community, create new dividing lines and challenge the principles of globalization and multilateralism. The Astana International Forum was created to respond to these challenges, giving priority to cooperation as the main postulate of a functioning international system," Tokayev said, quoted by the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The forum program includes main reports, panel sessions, discussions and other related events.
