"Our world is an interconnected system straining under the burden of its own complexity. The Fourth Industrial Revolution and other factors are combining to make the global environment more unpredictable and difficult to navigate.

This year, the World Economic Forum put in place the framework that will ensure our platform serves an enduring role as the “operating system” for the increased multistakeholder and interdependent cooperation this complexity requires. Our role has always been to connect the dots, to provide leaders with a space to proactively focus on the future and develop a forward-looking strategic view in a world that is increasingly interconnected and, at the same time, absorbed by the challenges of the past."
