The UAE Government and the United Nations Initiative to commemorate its 75th anniversary launched the “Future Possibilities Report 2020”, presenting six transformational trends that can add up to $30 trillion to the global economy by 2025.
The report, commissioned by the UAE, was launched during a global dialogue on “Opportunities for the Future We Want”, co-hosted by UAE Government and the” UN75: 2020 and Beyond” Initiative.
Led by Ohood Bint Khalfan Al Roumi, Minister of State for Government Development and The Future and Fabrizio Hochschild, United Nations Under-Secretary-General and Special Adviser on UN75, and moderated by Ambassador Lana Zaki Nusseibeh, UAE’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations in New York, the dialogue focused on global approaches to strengthening future-readiness.

The meeting also hosted ministers, ambassadors, and officials from over 100 governments worldwide, in addition to more than 130 international experts.
In her remarks, Al Roumi noted, “The UAE is committed to enhancing global partnerships to shape future development and promote governments’ readiness in cooperation with the United Nations. This embodies the vision of the UAE’s leadership to be proactive and innovate business models across various sectors to better anticipate future risks and secure a more resilient and prosperous future for coming generations.”
