World Economic Forum on the Middle East and North Africa 2017 "Enabling a Generational Transformation"
The meeting will take place in the context of growing economic reform efforts that are being made in many countries of the region, as well as shifting investment and trade priorities. It will also aim to address continued geopolitical shifts and humanitarian challenges by supporting multistakeholder dialogue on the situation in Syria, Iraq and Libya, and the ongoing refugee crisis. Top decision-makers from Gulf Cooperation Council countries, the Levant and North Africa, as well as key international stakeholders from the United States, Europe, East Africa and other regions, will also explore the impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution – a new era in the global economy promising huge opportunities, resulting from the convergence of digital information and technological advancements in various economic fields. Under this theme, participants will examine in particular how new technologies can be harnessed to create employment, encourage entrepreneurism and drive inclusive growth, especially in this region with a very young population.
