"The world is transparent, there can't be any limits to transparency, as it leads to high ethical standards," Bulgaria's leading PR expert Maxim Behar has declared at the World Communication Forum opening in Davos.

Behar participated in the "Privacy vs. Publicity in the era of transparency" debate along with Allan Mayer, Principal Partner at the biggest show business PR agency in New York, 42West. Moderator of the debate was Daniel H?ltgen, Director of Communications at the Council of Europe.

"No one can stop transparency anymore. From now on transparency will constantly evolve thanks to social media, which make the world better, more honest, and moral, and provide something very important and needed these days – knowledge," said Behar.

This is Maxim Behar's third participation in a row in the prestigious forum in Davos. Two years ago he presented on the topic of social media, and last year he was the moderator of the opening debate between Paul Holmes and Marshall Sponder, as this year Mr. Behar took part in the debate himself.

Maixm Behar is the CEO of the leading PR agency in Bulgaria, M3 Communications Group, Inc., a Hill+Knowlton Strategies affiliate. In January 2012 he was also appointed a Chairman of Hill+Knowlton Strategies office in Prague.

The forum Communication on Top summons professionals and innovators in the field of communications, and lets the trend-makers share creative ideas, and discuss best practices and new strategies. This year more than 30 people from 20 different countries around the globe participate in the forum. Two case studies are to be presented along with seven panel discussions, and three debates, aimed at exploring the future of communications.

The third edition of World Communication forum opened on February 8th. In addition to the "Privacy vs. Publicity" topic, this year the forum program features topics such as "New challenges to the PR consultancies – global vs. local", "Interactions in virtual economics", and "Virtual vs. face-to-face communication in PR and marketing".

In addition to participating in the "Privacy vs. Publicity" debate, Maxim Behar is to moderate the C4F (Communication for Future) Awards closing ceremony. This is the second edition of the awards, given to individuals with major influence on the improvement of communications and contribution to the new trends in the industry.
