PwC at the World Economic Forum on the Middle East and North Africa

6 - 7 April, Dead Sea, Jordan

Themed ‘Building New Platforms of Cooperation’, the World Economic Forum on the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) brings together over 1,000 key leaders from government, business and civil society to enable collaboration on the most pressing challenges facing the region.

As the world enters a new phase of globalization, the region seeks to create its own path for societal and economic advancement. In a hyperconnected world, partial and isolated responses are ill-adapted to reap the promised benefits that this transformation holds, or to address the challenges. To harness this wave, new systems of cooperation will have to be charted in the region.

The meeting will provide a collaborative platform for generating progress on the regional agenda for inclusive growth, social advancement and sustainable development. As a strategic partner, PwC will have a strong presence at the event.
