March 21 this year on the basis of the media holding of the CCI-inform held a virtual roundtable on the theme "Global perspectives", organized by the information Agency of the CCI-inform Agency in conjunction with the Center for strategic estimates and forecasts (CSop). The meeting was attended by representatives of information-analytical and expert community of the CIS countries.

Geopolitical development of the first quarter have already put the current year (the year of the "metal rabbit on the Eastern calendar) in the row with the years, when occurred the greatest event of human history that changed the path of civilization.

Two fundamental events – the pan-Arab revolution that swept in January and February 2011 from more than ten countries of the Arab world, and the most powerful earthquake in Japan that caused a catastrophic impact on the third largest economy in the world – has mixed all the cards analysts who build forecasts of development of the world in the coming years. Now clearly, it became clear that things will be different.

What awaits the world in the short to medium term? What adjustments in the projections needs to be made? With these and other questions we turn to our experts.

To find out the opinion of experts on these and other issues has allowed the round table, which took place on 17 March, a Round table was organized by information Agency "CCI-inform" together with the Center for strategic assessments and forecasts.

The meeting was attended by representatives of information-analytical and expert community of the CIS countries. Among them are: Scientific-educational Foundation "Noravank" (Armenia), information and analytical Internet project "Empire" (Belarus), analytical center "Reasonable decisions" (Kyrgyzstan), as well as representatives of Ukraine.

The experts were of the opinion that the present stage of development of mankind in many ways a turning point – events are not allow to say that at the end of the world will return to its previous state. Will continue all the way.

Common was the view that the events have a significant negative impact on the society and economy of the CIS countries, leading to increased social tensions, which in turn further destabilizes the already difficult situation in these countries. In this regard, today it becomes important to study the experiences, causes and effects of the pan-Arab revolution.

The practice of political life and a series of color and velvet revolutions of recent history has shown that Western political scientists are actively working to prevent the spread of processes of revival of the Eurasian unity.

However, experts agree that today a lot will depend on whether our countries to develop a common understanding of the severity of the current situation and to draw correct conclusions from the results of the Arab revolutions and the right to predict the possible development of the situation for themselves.

Such a clear understanding of the situation, in turn, will allow you to understand and realize new threats and, more importantly, to understand and realize the benefits of the current situation, which can be extracted from it.

The key advantage may be the introduction of a new model of Eurasian integration. This step will allow countries that have adopted this development path, to leave the current dying system and lay the foundations of forming new financial and economic relations that are not based on parasitism of some at the expense of others.

The round table participants came to the conclusion about the need to continue discussions on future global and regional policy in the requested format. Thus the round table remains open for new entrants that will give the opportunity to better evaluate current development and on this basis to predict more accurately future trends in global and regional construction.

The participants agreed to continue communication and to follow closely the dynamic processes, quickly discussing their impact on the societies and economies of the countries which took part in the round table.
