24.06.2015 : Entrepreneurial Responsibility
Prof.Hallier lectured at the Alanus University/Germany about the Global House of Harmony combining Economics, Ecology and Ethics.

15.06.2015 : Eurasian Economic Union
The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) was started in 2014 by BelaRus, Kazakhstan and Russia - and is now enlarged by Armenia and Kyrkystan. Its present population is 170 million people. A driving force for innovation in this area is the Astana Economic Forum and G-Global.
Kazakhstan's President Nazarbayev stated in his speech at the Forum that on the external level he is aiming to build a multi-model, high speed Eurasian transcontinental corridor which integrates air, sea, rail and highway-links. For education therefore a trilingual policy is followed : Kazakh, Russian and English. The internal policy will be " Big Country-Big Family" with the emphasis on the history of the country , its culture as well as its modern life. The European Retail Academy used this unique opportunity to support the competition World Economic Youth Forum by a speech of Prof.Dr.Hallier "Today a student, tomorrow an EXPOnent" with the slogan "Global Youth Energy" for EXPO 2017 (More at: www.european-retail-academy.org/EUCVOT )

As a first EXPO in 2015 Milano dedicated its Exhibition to the topic of food, its sustainability and to Food Waste.

He was therefore asked by the Bocconi University to act as an embassador for the student competition at the Expo.
The European Retail Academy created also with the help of the world economic youth forum in Astana www.european-retail-academy.org/GGU as a global green university platform. The GGU is though to be a tactical tool to support the EXPO 2017 in Astana.
„ It is necessary to find a new equilibrium for a combination of Economy, Ecology and Ethics for Global Harmony“ is Hallier‘s credo for Milano 2015 as well was for Astana 2017.
