27th EF raises an interesting, yet intense discussion entitled "America first, Europe second? The future of the alliance"

Nowy Jork, Wall Street

Are the political alliances, which we all believe in, still valid? Can we still hope for benefits and for help from our partners taking into consideration that the political reality has been changing constantly and drastically?

The political spectrum in majority of countries is being modified considerably, mostly due to the replacement of  countries’ authorities. Recently, the whole world could observe the elections in one of the most powerful countries on our planet – The United States of America, where the political power went to the Republican Party and to President Donald Trump, and in France, where the heated national debate was eventually won by President Emmanuel Macron. In the wake of these events, the geopolitical order has gained a brand new image.

During the debate, its participants will accept the challenge to answer most intriguing questions, for example: To what extent Great Britain’s exit from the European Union will affect the relations as well as the alliances concluded between the Old Continent and the United States of America? What will be the shape of the future transatlantic dialogue?

In this panel, the Economic Forum is proudly joined by its partners: Canadian Global Affairs Institute and Limes, Italian Review of Geopolitics. The forum will also have a pleasure to host confirmed guests such as: Vice President of the Canadian Global Affairs Institute – Mr. Colin Robertson, Member of EU Parliament – Mr. Brando Maria Benifei as well as the Director of the Federal Trust for Education and Research (UK) – Mr. Brendan Donnelly.
