The participants were very concerned that economic pressures have increased after the pandemic. The production facilities are under tremendous pressure and a great number of units have closed down or gone to minimum production levels.

The world is changing and collective thinking can only bring about positive notions for the economy.
The Russian speaker highlighted the narrative given by Pakistani Prime Minister to ease out already suffering weak economies and urging world doners to either relax or forgo the interest payments for the loan so that the economy can recover and the countries could get back on their feet and participate in the growth of the economy.
The point was highlighted that we have to rise up and stop blaming each other for political point-scoring or world dominance.
The Pandemic was a world crisis rather than getting stuck in the trivial matter and blaming each other the world has to harmonise and move forward towards the recovery and solutions.
Food supplies construction and tourism are potential areas where instantly the work can be done and the golden circle countries can work together.
The financial system has to be established among countries and the framework is in process.

Golden Ring Economic Forum (GREF) was initiated in 2010. The basic idea is to share economic goals, create harmony, and device an action plan where member countries can take advantage of the knowledge and expertise attained by other member countries.

GREF, Economic Recovery and COVID-19

Initial members of this group are Russia, China, Pakistan, Iran, and Turkey. The idea is to create uniformity, ease of operation, and enhance cooperation in different sectors of the economy.

This will boost economic activities and the member countries will benefit when specific help will be rendered by the progressed member country.
