The world is currently witnessing fundamental changes in the form and essence of the international relations, in addition to the influence of globalization. Hence, the need for joint collaboration at the international level in diverse fields has risen in confrontation of the contemporary challenges and the accelerated changes.
These changes have been reflected on economies; individually and globally. Thus, the global economy is presently facing problems that affect development and growth requirements. The reports of the international organizations display different global rankings of the countries in the fields of sustainable development, the quality of life, and the fast growing or sluggish economies.
The global competition reports show a good ranking of some Arab countries, which have sensed the importance of this competition, and managed to attain good ranking in the fields of governance, e-government, enhancing the digital and smart systems, quality of education, investment-oriented policies, and supporting small and medium industries and infrastructure.
Here stems a clear vision that incorporates the relationship between the goals of sustainable development, on one hand, and the need to accelerate the economy growth and competitiveness, in such a powerful way that enables it to address the requirements of this development, on the other hand.
This conference aims to administer intellectual dialogues and discussions that probe the roles of Arab governments in promoting their competitive rank in the world, and their positive impact on the global economy. Furthermore, it aims to create new tracks for the Arab economic relations, similar to that in the developed countries, which may differ in their political stances, but sometimes share identical economic attitudes in various domains.
The conference also constitutes an opportunity to exchange Arab expertise in developing, integrating the economies of the Arab countries, and also provides an opportunity to deal with the repercussions and impact of wars, political and ideological strife, and paves the way towards meeting the requirements of sustainable development by 2030.
