Dead Sea, Jordan 21-23 October 2011
Recent shifts in the Arab world coupled with an economic contraction at the global level have created a new urgency for decision-makers across the region: the need to address the fundamental conditions required to revive growth and support human development.
Now more than ever, it is critical to match employment, entrepreneurship and education prospects with the aspirations of young populations. This has clearly become a key in the decisions taken by government, industry and civil society in the Arab world.
To respond to these apparent and urgent imperatives, the World Economic Forum will convene a “Special Meeting on Economic Growth and Job Creation in the Arab World” at the Dead Sea, Jordan.
Bringing together the GCC countries, Levant, Maghreb and international community, this Special Meeting will focus on best practices in economic policy and reform and elaborate concrete ways in which all stakeholders can drive positive outcomes across the region.
