The programme will convene key stakeholders, including government officials, business leaders, economists, and experts to foster high-level discussions on sustainable economic growth, geo-economic perspectives, and innovative solutions.
The partnership will also focus on cultivating and fostering thought leadership, producing research on emerging trends, challenges, and opportunities that pertain to the Global South. The programme will also progressively enhance the data on the region for future governments.
The MoU was signed by Manoj Ladwa and Mohamed al Sharhan, Managing Director, World Governments Summit, in the presence of Omar Sultan Al Olama, UAE Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence and Digital Economy and Remote Work Applications, Vice-Chair of the World Governments Summit Organization.
Manoj Ladwa, Founder and Chairman of India Global Forum, said, “The recently concluded G20 in New Delhi demonstrated the imperative for the Global South to continue on a path towards building equitable, sustainable & inclusive economies. That’s why I’m delighted that India Global Forum, alongside the World Governments Summit, are launching an Emerging Economies Programme. The programme will be a pivotal new platform that will directly respond to the needs and aspirations of the Global South. This unique partnership will unite the experience and expertise of both organisations with the aim of unleashing the limitless potential of the world’s emerging economies.”
Mohamed Al Sharhan, Managing Director of the World Governments Summit, emphasized the significance of inclusivity in international cooperation and the role of the World Governments Summit Organization as a global platform to unite governments based on shared knowledge and expertise towards forecasting the emerging trends and events that the future brings with them.
Al Sharhan further added that inclusivity in governance yields potential by securing accessibility of knowledge and resources in developing nations, therefore allowing the acceleration of advanced technologies through universality, and that strengthening cooperation between governments and knowledge contributors is the foundation for building resilient governments ready for unforeseen challenges of the future.
“Together both India Global Forum and the World Governments Summit will help make governments around the World more informed, ready and innovative,” said Omar Sultan Al Olama, UAE Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence and Digital Economy and Remote Work Applications, Vice-Chair of the World Governments Summit Organization, after the signing.
