As we enter a new phase of globalization (Globalization 4.0), the Middle East and North Africa seeks to create its own path for societal and economic advancement. In a hyperconnected world, partial and isolated responses are ill-adapted to reap the promised benefits that this transformation holds, or to address its challenges.

New systems of cooperation will have to be charted in the region, particularly related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, inclusive economic models and climate change.

In this context, the World Economic Forum on the Middle East and North Africa 2019 will convene over 1,000 key leaders from government, business and civil society at the Dead Sea, Jordan, to enable collaboration on the most pressing challenges facing the region.
