“Shaping Future Governments” at WGS 2024
Since its inception in 2013, the annual event has championed the cause of creating a better future for humanity. This year’s Summit – set to run from February 12 to 14 – has adopted the theme of “Shaping Future Governments“.
It will feature over 4,000 delegates from the public and private sectors, including 200 speakers from 80 international, regional and intergovernmental organisations such as the UN, International Monetary Fund, International Atomic Energy Agency and Arab League.
The Dubai event will also include 15 conferences aimed at defining the future of AI, government services, urbanisation, education and smart mobility, reported The National. There will be six additional conferences to cover pressing topics like sustainable development.
Mohammed Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs and chairman of the World Government Summit, said the selection of India, Turkey and Qatar as guests of honour at the global gathering reflected the deep-rooted ties they share with the UAE.
