HH the Emir Opens Doha Forum 2010 & Enriching Future Economy Conference
2010-05-31

HH the Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani on Monday opened the Doha Forum 2010 and the Enriching the Middle East's Economic Future Conference at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The opening ceremony was attended by President Tarja Halonen of Finland, President Gjorge Ivanov of Macedonia, wife of the Jordanian Monarch Queen Rania Al Abdullah, Zanzibar President Amani Karume and Prime Minister Gordon Bajnai of Hungary. It was also attended by HE the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor Al Thani, HE the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Energy and Industry Abdullah bin Hamad Al Attiyah, besides a number of their Excellencies Sheikhs and Ministers, the Advisory Council Speaker, heads of the diplomatic Missions accredited to the states and several guests. Addressing the opening session of the 10th session of the Doha Forum, HH the Emir Sheikh said: Our meeting is being held this year at very difficult circumstances because of the economic and financial turmoil encountered by the world that deserves to be studied and examined, and which makes it difficult for any conference or forum to reach a conclusive view or declare a decision on issues that might be definitive or detailed. We all are required to follow up what is going on at the sites of international decision- making, world production and globalized markets, with utmost seriousness and keenness, because we are facing a moment of a major change that the world stability, security and safety necessitate. There is a contradiction, we have now reached an unprecedented degree of scientific and technological advance in terms of availability of commodities, services and funds, and that gives us reasons to be assured about the future. But on the other hand, we see throughout both the developed and developing world what stirs our serious concern as a result of the violent disturbances we witnessed, as we have an advanced world whose communities are vulnerable to apprehension regarding their social security and the legitimate aspirations of their people. Over the past decades, these developed worlds imagined that the ears of war, which they had borne the brunt of their woes, ended and that they could now afford to live in a sustained and guaranteed prosperity free from recession and unemployment. In the meantime, the developing countries that had accomplished some sort of national independence were looking forward to a future they perceive ahead of them after securing what was achieved by those who were forerunners for advancement. They thought that they could afford to rely on their own resources and on the support of those advanced through synergic, capable and competent international authorities and organizations to assist them in keeping pace with securing their move towards the future. But the current situation in the world as we see it is confronting all of us with a critical contradiction, where neither the ground for reassurance is available and standing on the part of the advanced, nor the ground for hope is certain and guaranteed on the part of growth seekers. That will set the world intellectuals and decision-makers vis-a-vis a very complex challenge. We neither face a devastating global danger, nor a reassuring situation of global stability, and in our opinion what we see before us either in the field of politics or in economy and finance has basic implications that mean if the major realities about the causes of progress are noticeable, and if the political and economic fluctuations in the money markets and political practices are in trouble, that means the disorderliness in this contradiction between the real which entails reassurance, and the actual which causes concern, is in the systems and not in the basics, in management and not in the potentials. In conclusion and accordingly what we anticipate from this forum are not resolutions on any of the issues, because that in our opinion is affected by the real liquidity situations which threaten the global economic solidity as well as the methods of political practice. In this forum you are encountered by an agenda full of important global, regional and local issues, but allow me to remind you that all the issues and problems that concern us are associated with the wider framework, and while we could not await on many problems until the clouds building up around us to dissipate, we see that the movement of this uniquely interdependent world in history can not find the most and best solutions without having stable atmospheres and systematic situations, where each of us could make sound planning on the basis of clear perceptions and rules according to which balanced calculations could be made. I wish you and the Forum all success. For his part, HE Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor Al Thani has delivered a speech at the opening session of the forum in which he underlined that the forum has undertaken over the past ten years to open free , responsible and constructive dialogue and has adopted open discussion as a basis for action and achieving gains for all the participants and then let them free to offer whatever ideas and initiatives to be taken into consideration at the humanitarian level for the benefit of all . HE Sheikh Hamad Bin Jabor Bin Jassim Al Thani made clear that the main topics of the forum are similar and interrelated in their relationship with the international and humanitarian affairs in each year since its inception , explaining meantime that this year''s topics had been chosen more extensively within the agenda of the forum, in coordination with the concerned partners of the research centers in the world. HE the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister indicated that the forum''s organizers have forumlated their concept on how best to develop the forum in its 11th edition next year while the forum is considering in its current edition the idea of culminating its current deliberations with a statement or a communique that could be a base to be build upon in its next sessions. ''''Democracy at the inner level is the sole means for realizing the social peace on the basis of justice, equity and equality , the matter which would lead us inevitably to provide for stability and thus rules and frames required for the development of communities for a better life in all areas will be available'''', said the Prime Minister And Foreign Minister in his speech before the forum. He further said that via such a channel, the responsible freedom would be availble to explore means of science and knowledge and what it involves of creativity and a peaceful settlement would prevail and under tensions and conflicts that plagued social relations noting that democracy is in itself a recognition of a predetermined acceptable legal framework governing the social relations. HE Sheikh Hamad bin jabor bin jassim Al Thani further that the other important fact is that the prevalence of such an approach in the governance of communities must in turn be reflected on relations between the different communities and thus those countries that are represented in their relations with each other. HE the prime minister and foreign minister stressed that whenever democracy be prevailed in international relations , the force of law would in turn prevail on the law of force as being the adequate approach for spreading peace , security and stability, which would accordingly lead to availability of means of humanitarian development in a manner of cooperation and solidarity to realise the common interest of humanity. Concluding his speech, HE Sheikh Hamad Bin Jassim Bin Jabor Al Thani welcomed the dinstinguished guests and the participants attending the Forum who have the experience and views and contributions to offer to the forum.(END) Contribute a better translationand the each other and interrelative and feartures opened the Doha Forum 2010 and the Enriching the Middle East''s Economic Future Conference at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. translationShow romanization Ways of science and knowledge and what it involves creativity and prevail in a peaceful settlement plagued by social relations, tensions and conflicts .. noting that democracy is in itself a recognition of the legal framework governing the predetermined acceptable social relations.
