They believed that such optimal use of knowledge would allow countries to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals and meet the challenges of the current decade.
His Excellency Jamal bin Huwaireb, CEO of MBRF, said, “The seventh edition of the Knowledge Summit, held over a period of five days, served as a platform for in-depth intellectual discussions with leaders, experts, thinkers, and participants. These sessions have worked toward highlighting the risks, impacts, opportunities, and options for managing and anticipating challenges, and have worked towards formulating appropriate solutions to combat these challenges in the next 10 years. The Summit has successfully conveyed the message that knowledge is the power of the future, and that its acquisition comes from the modernization of education systems, and facilitation of its provision to young people.”
“The Summit has also resulted in many proposals and recommendations, which we will actively work on during the year by discussing them with intellectuals, opinion makers, leaders, experts, and government officials from all over the world. This is in line with the foundation’s aim to consolidate knowledge and enable societies to devise sustainable solutions,” His Excellency added.
His Excellency was especially delighted by the enthusiastic participation of experts, leaders, and government officials from all over the world, as well as the broad support received from the public and private sectors in the UAE.
