Abu Dhabi: The UAE will host the regional organisations forum, which is the first event of its kind to be held in the region. The event brings together the decision-makers and heads of international bodies to shed light on the most pressing global issues from 12 -13 November.
This comes in conjunction with convention of the Global Agenda Summit – Davos, and within efforts to highlight the role of the United Arab Emirates in the convergence of views among the international bodies to promote mutual cooperation in the service of humanity.
H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Foreign Minister, said the world event reflects the position occupied by the UAE on the strategic international events map, and its contributory role to achieving the global compliance and restoration of confidence in the performance of agencies and international bodies, and promotion of the joint action system among the international bodies so as to ensure the hopes and aspirations of nations and peoples.
Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economy Forum, said the global economy faces main challenges due to the financial instability and successive crises that led to the widening of income gaps, increment of imposed restrictions on resources, surging in poverty and unemployment rates and lack of security. He added that the international bodies should step up the efforts to upgrade the joint action mechanisms to meet the requirements of peoples.
“We are proud to work with the UAE government represented by the UAE foreign minister to develop communication and dialogue among the international bodies worldwide through the International Organisations,” he added.
For his part, Mohammed Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of the Cabinet Affairs and Chairman of the Organising Committee of the Global Agenda Summit, stressed the importance of holding such forum, which will bring together the elite of international experts and thinkers to brainstorm on how best to make the world a better place for communication among cultures and peoples.
