Qatar to Host Global Redesign Summit 2010
2010-05-19

Doha, May 19 (QNA) - Doha will host the Global Redesign Summit 2010 under the aegis of the World Economic Forum, at the Doha Sheraton Hotel on May 30 and 31. Announcing this at a press conference on Wednesday at the Doha Sheraton Hotel, HE Foreign Minister's Assistant for Follow-up Affairs Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Rumaihi said: "The Summit will see the assembly of top experts and academia specializing in economics, finance, banking, institutional governance, international security, planning, climate, science and technology and other fields."
The global redesign initiative, under the patronage of the governments of Switzerland, Singapore, Tanzania and hosts Qatar, is a blue print for meeting the challenges of the 21st century and a collaborative effort of all stakeholders of the global society.
"The challenges of the 21st century, particularly under the new global conditions should be addressed through mutual co-operation; it is the collective responsibility of all nations, it is not the problem of one country," said HE Al Rumaihi.
Since the global financial crisis began, the World Economic forum has provided a platform through its Global Redesign Initiative for business, political and civil society leaders to examine the limitations in international co-operation and develop proposals to overcome these.
Many leaders from the academia, policy, business and non-governmental communities have contributed ideas and research papers as part of the Forum's Global Agenda Councils.
The Forum's Annual Meeting earlier this year in Davos reviewed these proposals; some were tested in Ideas Labs, others were debated in public meetings.
The global redesign calls for a review and reformulating strategies, plans and new initiatives jointly by all stake holders, governments, non-governmental groups and other nodal organisations, he added.
The August assembly in Doha will discuss and probe the proposals on more proactive global co-operation, current issues and look at how the international system be adapted to the new environment.
The conference will hear presentations on nine key themes prepared by various high profile rapporteurs on topics like 'Building Sustained Economic Growth', Strengthening the International Monetary and Financial System, Creating Employment, Eradicating Poverty and Improving Social Welfare, Health, Global Security, Ensuring Sustainability and Building Effective Institutions in an Empowered Society.
Replying to a question by Qatar News Agency (QNA) whether the summit would mull security issues, particularly the increasing incidence of piracy in the commercial sea lanes of the region, HE Al Rumaihi said, "Piracy is just one of the issues, there are 12 issues to be discussed on security. We will be discussing to find solutions from a global point of view.
"The conference will focus on finding lasting solutions and the way forward to achieve this is effective collaboration between various countries and nodal agencies," he added.
Concurrently with the two-day summit the Doha Forum - a conference to enrich the future of the Middle East, organised by the Permanent Committee for Organising Conferences, will be held from May 31 to June 2 at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. (END)
