The Minimal Model Program (MMP) plays a central role in the classification theory of projective varieties. In this talk I will discuss recent progress towards the existence of minimal models, which is one of the main open problems in the MMP. In particular, I will explain the close relationship between the existence of minimal models and the existence of so-called weak Zariski decompositions, focusing mainly on applications of the latter. This talk is based on joint works with Xiaowei Jiang, Vladimir Lazić and Lingyao Xie.
