The DCO’s participation in this prestigious global economic gathering will be led by Secretary-General Deemah AlYahya, who will participate as a panel member for several high-profile sessions alongside senior international government ministers and digital decision-makers from the private sector seeking ways to unlock innovation and the trillion-dollar potential of digital trade.
DCO Secretary-General Deemah AlYahya said, “As a proud partner to the World Economic Forum, the DCO’s participation will give us a productive platform among global leaders and decision-makers to promote our growing role in fostering global multilateral cooperation by bringing key digital economy stakeholders together in an inclusive framework to shape the global digital economy.”
“During our participation in WEF this year, we will share the findings and recommendations from the latest DCO reports offering recommended actions for both public and private sectors to achieve the shared goal of an inclusive global digital economy. We are determined to ensure that the shaping of a collaborative, inclusive, innovative, and sustainable digital economy is an integral part of the global economic debate – today and in the future.”
“Our thought leadership during these sessions will be of enormous benefit to our organization’s mission and vision towards achieving inclusive and sustainable digital prosperity around the world and continue our role in supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.”
