The UAE Government and the World Economic Forum (WEF) have announced the signing of a partnership agreement to develop the “We the UAE for Strategic Intelligence 2031” platform.
The platform aims to support policymakers, strategists, and government leaders in the UAE with a specialised strategic knowledge base in priority sectors outlined in the ‘We the UAE 2031’ vision.
It was shared that the platform involves the development of a new model for strategic design, powered by artificial intelligence, utilising specialised global resources, and the data and information provided by over 2500 international experts and more than 450 global sources.
Artificial intelligence technology tools will also provide summaries of the latest research, studies, and possible scenarios related to each topic, as well as key strategic trends and practices.
Further, the platform will provide interactive multidimensional analytical maps for decision-makers, policymakers, and government strategists.
The agreement was signed during the World Economic Forum 2024 by Her Excellency Huda Al Hashimi, Deputy Minister of Cabinet Affairs for Strategic Affairs and Stephan Mergenthaler, Head of Strategic Intelligence, World Economic Forum.
Professor Klaus Schwab commented: “We face a fractured world and growing societal divides, leading to pervasive uncertainty and pessimism. We have to rebuild trust in our future by moving beyond crisis management, looking at the root causes of the present problems, and building together a more promising future. Trust and cooperation are a must in a connected, yet divided world.”
Adding: “From empowering food innovation and unlocking trade technologies, to harnessing the full power of technology to improve government services, the World Economic Forum is proud of its many forward-looking collaborations with the United Arab Emirates, which are tackling global challenges from a unique, multi-stakeholder perspective.”
