World Government Summit

Conference & Exhibit Info

The World Governments Summit 2024 will be held under the theme of “Shaping Future Governments”. The Summit will bring together governments, international organizations, thought leaders, and private sector leaders from around the globe, to promote international cooperation and enable governments to identify innovative solutions for future challenges to inspire and enable the next generation of government.

The World Government Summit Agenda will focus on six main themes:

Government Acceleration and Transformation

Governments worldwide have accelerated their digital transformation initiatives in the past few years. This surge in technological adoption has brought both opportunities and challenges. As governments rush to digitize their processes, improve citizen services, and enhance cybersecurity, how can we ensure that the benefits are inclusive and reach all members of society, while accelerating economic growth? What policies should be taken to address the digital divide and ensure that no one is left behind in this rapidly changing world.

Artificial Intelligence and The Next Frontiers

In the next 10 to 20 years, various trends across multiple domains will shape our world. One such trend is generative AI, a transformative force with the potential to revolutionize technology. From regulation and ethical design to potential use-cases with global impact, this field offers immense value for governments and organizations alike. However, generative AI is just one piece of the puzzle. As we forecast the next decade, we must consider the holistic landscape of emerging trends and innovation across all sectors, and their implications on society, economy, and our daily lives.​

Reimagining Development and Future Economies

​In today’s rapidly evolving economic landscape, individuals, organizations, and governments face the imperative to adapt and innovate to stay competitive and relevant. Embracing new technologies, business models, and social trends becomes crucial in creating fresh opportunities for growth and development. Exploring strategies to navigate these shifts and envisioning new pathways is essential for building resilient and thriving economies of the future.​

Future Societies and Education

As we navigate the future, it is vital to delve into the intertwining realms of societies, education, and technology’s transformative power. Emphasizing the cultivation of inclusive, sustainable, and resilient societies, this exploration pushes the boundaries of scientific and technological advancements. By comprehending these dynamics, we gain the ability to navigate the challenges and seize the opportunities that await us, shaping a future that embraces progress and enhances the wellbeing of individuals across the globe.​

Sustainability and The New Global Shifts

The growing importance of sustainability is reshaping the future of global governance and the global economy, particularly in food security, water security, and energy security. Governments, businesses, and individuals around the world must recognize the criticality of sustainable practices in ensuring a more equitable and just world for all. Through sustainable approaches, how can we address the urgent need to secure access to food, water, and energy, while fostering long-term prosperity and resilience.

Urbanization and Global Health Priorities

Converging urbanization and global health priorities is becoming increasingly important in shaping sustainable, healthy, and inclusive cities. Recognizing cities as dynamic centers of growth and innovation, by integrating cutting-edge mobility solutions and embracing innovative city designs, we can create urban environments that boast accessible and efficient transportation systems. How can we foster these advancements to enable the wellbeing of residents and transform our cities into futuristic hubs of livability and progress.
