Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ A delegation of Mongolia headed by P.Tsagaan is taking part in the WEF Summit on the Global Agenda 2015, which kicked off Monday in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Within the Summit, 80 sub-meetings are to run on urgent problems to the world. Mr Tsagaan and  S.Oyun MP, a president of the United Nations Environment Assembly of the UNEP (UNEA), will take part in sub-meetings dedicated to mining, metallurgy and water issues. Other sub-meetings will touch upon issues such as innovation’s future, economic growth and capability, sustainable development of the coal sector, future of cities, the fourth revolution of industrialization, climate change and immigration.

The Summit on the Global Agenda, established as a unique partnership between the World Economic Forum and the United Arab Emirates since 2008, is the annual gathering of the Network of Global Agenda Councils. It brings together 1,000 leaders and influencers to assess critical global, regional and industry challenges. In light of the World Economic Forum’s new status as an international institution for public-private cooperation, the Summit will serve as a global brainstorming for innovative ideas to unlock some of the world’s most protracted global challenges. It also marks the second meeting in the two-year term of Global Agenda Councils, providing an opportunity to showcase and contextualize the councils’ achievements since the beginning of the term.

By focusing on the unique breadth of knowledge and expertise represented within the Network of Global Agenda Councils and facilitating active collaboration and exchange between councils, the summit emphasizes the need for networked solutions for an increasingly networked world.
