Summit on Global Agenda 2012 Ends

(Dubai) – The World Economic Forum’s fifth Summit on the Global Agenda has ended with a call for world leaders to take a long-term global perspective and not be too focused on domestic problems. “2013 will be a very crucial year, with many rupture points,” said Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum, in the closing session.
Relaying the concerns of Summit participants, he added: “I appeal to the world’s leadership, particularly in those countries with new leaders in place or where the current leaders have been reconfirmed, to devote sufficient time and positive energy to look after our global issues and not just to be absorbed with internal problems. Let’s make 2013 a year of true global cooperation.”
More than 1,000 thought leaders and experts on the most significant global challenges, members of the Forum’s 88 Global Agenda Councils participated in this year’s Summit, up from 700 in Abu Dhabi last year.
