World Economic Forum (WEF) founder Klaus Schwab is joining the World Government Summit (WGS) 2023 in Dubai to deliver the keynote address to global elites.
Some of the world’s most powerful figures will be flocking to the United Arab Emirates for the WGS event this week.
On Monday, Schwab will address attendees on his globalist agenda for the world.
Just last month, Schwab greeted attendees at the WEF’s annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland with a salute, acknowledging the self-importance of those drawn to hear him speak and their role in shaping the world.
“The future is not just happening,” Schwab outlined.
“The future is built by us, by a powerful community as you here in this room.
“We have the means to improve the state of the world, but two conditions are necessary.
“The first one is that we act all as stakeholders of larger communities.
“That we serve not only self-interest but we serve the community.
“That’s what we call stakeholder responsibility.
“And second, that we collaborate.”
In Dubai, Schwab’s keynote address at the WGS continues that theme with the title: “The State of the World.”
Tesla and Twitter CEO Elon Musk is also listed to speak, along with International Monetary Fund Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva.
They join representatives from the banking and finance industries who are among 10,000 others flying in to network under the overarching banner “Shaping Future Governments.”
Director-General of the World Health Organisation (WHO) Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus will also speak at the event and will discuss transitioning the world to digital health care.
Nick Clegg, a former deputy prime minister of the UK and now president of global affairs at Facebook’s parent company Meta, will speak in Dubai about AI-augmented governance.
Among the other high-profile speakers are:
- António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations
- David Malpass, President of the World Bank
- Ray Dalio, Founder, Co-Chairman and Co-Chief Investment Officer of Bridgewater Associates
- Alan Schwartz, CEO of Guggenheim Partners
- Hiroshi Mikitani, founder and CEO of Rakuten
- Christian Bruch, President and CEO of Siemens Energy
- Also, the summit will host a group of scientists such as the economist Esther Duflo and the chemist Dr. Roger Kornberg, Nobel Prize winners.
The Gulf News reports the emirate sees itself becoming “the center stage of exchange of ideas and visioning for a world facing numerous challenges” over the three-day meeting.
It goes on to set out that thousands of “leaders, including 20 heads of state, 250 ministers, heads of 80 international, regional and governmental organizations” will descend on the city to talk about the world today and in the future.
The outlet reports there will be 220 sessions and 300 speakers, 10,000 government officials, celebrities, and global experts from around the world who will discuss six key themes as Dubai hosts the region’s biggest gathering of leaders in the post-pandemic world next week.
The six themes to be tackled at WGS:
- Accelerating development and governance
- Future of societies and healthcare
- Exploring the frontiers
- Governing economic resilience and connectivity
- Global city design and sustainability; and
- Prioritizing learning and work.
In his “The State of the World” main session speech, Schwab “will speak about big changes awaiting the world economy in the future, and how governments can work together to face possible challenges and build a better future for societies.”
At last year’s event, Schwab told the gathering the time has come for world governments to unite as one.
He urged world leaders to join forces to tackle global problems such as “climate change,” trade, and economic disruption without delay.
