DUBAI, 3rd December, 2019 (WAM) -- The 12th edition of the Arab Strategy Forum will begin in Dubai on December 9 , with former US Vice President Dick Cheney, and former Foreign Minister of the People’s Republic of China, Li Zhaoxing, set to lay out the future direction that US-China relations and competition will have on the global order. The Forum will also host a discussion on whether we are heading into the next decade by starting with a global economic recession and what can be done to mitigate its effect.

Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, at Ritz Carlton DIFC, the annual event explores the major social, political and economic factors that will shape the Arab world in the coming years. This year’s edition will draw the participation of 18 keynote speakers, including an array of former ministers, international officials, leading industry experts, international strategists, writers and media professionals.

This year’s Forum is running under the theme ‘Forecasting the Next Decade’. The panels, discussions and keynotes held at the one-day event will explore and forecast the events and trends anticipated to unfold over the next ten years, and their impact on politics, socio-economic frameworks, international relationships and diplomacy.

In addition, the Forum will issue three reports that expound further on the social conditions of the next decade: The Future of Islamism, Global Trends in 2030 and 11 Questions for the Next Decade.

Saeed Al Etr, Assistant Secretary-General of the Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives Foundation, said: "With our current geopolitical and economic context as a starting point, the 12th edition of the Arab Strategy Forum will hear from prominent political and economic figures and their forecasts for the future in the region, and globally. In the coming decade, we expect to witness the consequences and changes from many of the important events and social transformations developing around us today.

"Knowledge, leadership and practical solutions are essential in being prepared for the years ahead, and a sustainable and steady future ? all of which we will see and hear at this year's edition of the Arab Strategy Forum."

He added: "The Forum presents today’s challenges and opportunities to the world’s leading decision-makers who can address them in a precise, balanced and politically-scientific manner, so we can best learn how to anticipate, manage and maintain socio-political equilibrium in the region and beyond.

"Hosting this tolerant, open-minded, future-forward approach to tackling the big issues that face our world, is paramount to our aims to bring greater harmony and unity to the world, and a testament to the UAE's continuous efforts to spread a culture of tolerance and coexistence by forecasting and preparing for the future."
