2016 CAMCA Regional Forum to be Held in Tbilisi, Georgia, June 17th-19th
Regional meeting fostering an exchange of ideas on key issues throughout the Greater Central Asia region
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 30, 2016
Washington, D.C. — The 2016 CAMCA (Central Asia-Mongolia-Caucasus-Afghanistan) Regional Forum will be held on June 17th-19th in Tbilisi, Georgia, hosted by the Rumsfeld Foundation in partnership with the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute at Johns Hopkins University. Over a three-day meeting, international and regional leaders across all sectors will convene to explore key issues, opportunities and challenges facing the CAMCA region.
The 3rd annual CAMCA Regional Forum will discuss ongoing developments in the region as well as outlooks on broader global trends. The Forum will consist of plenary sessions, keynote addresses and a variety of panels on topics including recent geopolitical and economic developments, intraregional trade and transport, business and investment opportunities in the region, regional security issues and much more.
The CAMCA Regional Forum is a non-political and non-partisan entity established to promote region-wide discussions on means of advancing economic growth and development in Greater Central Asia (Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan). It promotes this goal by fostering dialogue and interaction among rising young leaders from various sectors in the 10 countries of the region, as well as with international leaders and stakeholders.
The CAMCA Regional Forum has evolved out of the Rumsfeld Fellowship Program at the Central Asia-Caucasus Institute at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies, which has been bringing talented leaders from the region to Washington, D.C. since 2008. As of June 2016, over 145 professionals will have completed the Fellowship.
