As part of the summit a number of global initiatives and research studies will be released throughout the year, highlighting the summit’s status as an organisation that works constantly to find innovative solutions in government services.

Announcing the summit, Mohammed Abdullah Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs, and Chairman of the Organising Committee of the World Government Summit, said: “The previous editions of the summit have been successful in establishing a global platform for best practices in innovation for the development of government services.

The new name of the summit reflects the goal of expanding its role on the international level and strengthening partnerships with major global and regional organisations such as United Nations, Arab League, Gulf Cooperation Council, World Bank, Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, and World Economic Forum.” More info
