If you want to know what are the Breakthrough Competences to Manage Change in energy sector in coming years or geopolitical and economic change connected with the implementation of New Silk Road project – come to the 30th IPMA World Congress in Astana, 5th -7th September 2017!

IPMA World Congress has a long history reaching back to 1967 so it is not a surprise that with time this event established a brand on its own and became the world’s leading conference on project, program and portfolio management, bringing together business professionals, practitioners and researchers.

This year, 2017, we will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of this renowned project management feast of the year in Astana  – the capital of Kazakhstan – and this choice was not a coincidence. Astana is a city that can be called a living advertisement of project management on its own.
Though this urban settlement was granted city rights in 1862 it did not have a prevailing role in the country until 1994 when the Supreme Council of Kazakhstan decided to transfer the capital of Kazakhstan to a place known today as Astana. This way in 1994 the government of Kazakhstan started one of the most notable national project: construction of a modern capital city that would be a proud title-holder of the XXI century metropolis.

However Astana project, though impressive, is just one of many remarkable projects under implementation in the Republic of Kazakhstan. Most of you heard about strategic geopolitical project  called “New Silk Road” implemented in close cooperation between China and Kazakhstan. The name resembles historical Silk Way but aspires to so much more than a trade path. “New Silk Road” or “New Silk Road Economic Belt” means the creation of a set of international hubs in key transport corridors of Kazakhstan for trade and logistics, finance and business, innovation and technology, and tourism as well.

EXPO 2017 focused on future energy is another example of a Kazakh big-scale project that will be just a starting point for following investments in green energy projects. Astana EXPO-2017 sets the task to gather the best developments in these fields in order to demonstrate not only the future energy, but also the problematic issues of developing countries, connected with the need in it.

If  you want to know more about these projects let me invite you to the 30th IPMA World Congress in Astana that will be held on 5th-7th September 2017.  IPMA World Congress 2017 will be devoted to Breakthrough Competences for Managing Change with a special focus on New Silky Road project demands and future trends in energy sector.
This year’s IPMA World Congress is a special event also for one more reason: the organizers of IPMA World Congress in Astana negotiated a special extension to the EXPO 2017 visiting dates for Congress participants to give them an unique occasion to visit the World Fairs Exhibition on Future Energy before it gets closed.
