In the context of the globalization of the economy, knowledge of foreign languages ​​becomes an important information product that helps to objectively assess the situation on the world market and develop strategies to improve the efficiency of enterprises. For an economist, a foreign language opens the way to the most modern areas of practical economics. Experts say that it is impossible to become an economist without knowledge of a foreign language, because most of the concepts of economics have been developed in foreign countries.

On  February 23, 2022 the University of World Economy and Diplomacy  hosted an international conference on the topic “Modern Trends in Education: Foreign Languages and International Economy”, dedicated to the problems, solutions and achievements of distance learning, economics and teaching of foreign languages ​​in the context of economic globalization.
