The Executive Director of the Czech Taiwanese Business Chamber, Alice Rezková, was invited to the 13th year of the Czech-Germans Young Professionals Program (CGYPP) seminar in Prague, discussing international trade relations and European dependence on China with young, budding professionals.
The CGYPP's program revolved around resilient societies and how to build them. In the past few years, we as individuals and our communities and societies have faced multifaceted challenges. The ongoing globalization, various economic crises, disinformation, the rise of populism, climate change, influence from foreign authoritarian actors, or lately, the Covid-19 pandemic have shaken the very fundaments of western societies. The stability and fundamental values are being tested.
How can we cope with the dynamic developments? How can we face these challenges as individuals and society? What can we learn from our past experiences? What will society look like in the future? How can we turn problems into solutions and new benefits? How can we strengthen international cooperation? How do we keep our individual integrity and build up a resilient society?
