(Dubai) – The UAE government has signed an agreement with the World Economic Forum (WEF) to host the next four editions of the Annual Meeting for Shaping the Future.
The first of these meetings will be hosted in Dubai on November 13-14, featuring 50 specialized councils and more than 700 experts with the aim of preparing a clear future agenda to tackle the many challenges the world faces today.
The UAE-WEF partnership aims to boost efforts of studying and foreseeing the future in a number of vital sectors related to sustainable development, improving living standards, and finding effective solutions to anticipated challenges. The partnership will also help create platforms for the experts of the Global Future Councils to facilitate communication between government organizations, private enterprises, expert houses and consulting firms. These platforms will enable collaboration in building capacity through training courses, workshop, papers and publications related to vital sectors.
Signing the partnership agreement with the WEF on behalf of the UAE Government, Mohammed Abdullah Al-Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs and Future, said: “Foreseeing and mapping the future is one of the UAE’s major contributions to international society. The future is interlinked and connected, challenges are shared and common. In this context, it is important that we work with global councils to foresee the future and support governments around the world in formulating their strategies and preparing for the future.”
