Geoeconomic forum, Association for the World Economic Development Studies was founded in 2004, after several years of contemplating the need of gathering experts in Croatia and South East Europe specializing in economic globalisation, international relations and security issues. The essential idea of their association is based on the concept of geoeconomics, or the strategic use of economy.
GEOFO acts on three levels:
- Promotion of economic diplomacy and understanding of Croatian, regional and, global development
- Study of the depth, content and manner of the globalisation of Croatia, South East Europe and The European Union
- Establishment of Pax Oeconomica for South East Europe
GEOFO is oriented neither for nor against globalisation. It monitors and analyses the world economic processes in Croatia and region, based on facts, expert knowledge and non-partisan approaches.
