On the other hand, some forums are met with scepticism from the very beginning. Directly or indirectly, such forums are accused of serving as a platform for empty political rhetoric and considered ill-suited for generating immediate, substantive results. However, over time, their value may turn out to be much greater than first expected. This could certainly be said of the Caspian Economic Forum.
