On 24th April 2022, Ms. Maryam Raza, Deputy Director, Pakistan Research Center for a Community with Shared Future, Communication University of China, Beijing, China participated as a speaker in the 5th International New York Academic Research Conference organized by BZT Academy, Turkey. She gave speech on "New Normal and Transformations in the Covid-19 Era: Tackling Challenges with a Shared Approach".
She stated that the life beyond the Covid-19 virus holds a potential change for everyone to adapts well to the new normal. Many countries have been assisting each other by providing pharmaceutical aid and vaccines. However, an important question lies that whether the world will go back to the pre-Covid scenario or the world has to adjust with the new normal? She explained that the world must adapt to the new changes as the conditions in the post-Covid era would be different. She also highlighted that some governments have invested in efficacious conflict preparedness and revamped efforts to address structural and systemic inequities under an integrated sustainable development framework. Ms. Maryam suggested that the post-pandemic recovery must be coordinated at the multi-dimensional level. It must provide inclusive, accountable, and guided approaches prioritizing multi-sectoral collaborations to adapt to the new normal and digital transformation.
