To address the myriad of complex challenges brought about by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, World Economic Forum President Børge Brende said the Forum would continue to leverage its platform for public-private cooperation and the greater good.

“We cannot solve the most pressing global challenges without unique partnerships between government, business and civil society,” Brende told participants.

Commending the tremendous outcomes of the meeting this year – from global initiatives to tackle plastic waste and mental-health drives to facilitate peace in countries besieged by conflict – Brende called for integrated global action to repair broken trust and uphold dignity for all.

Shaping a global architecture adapted to the pressing challenges of our time, said Brende, is crucial and can only be
achieved “with all stakeholders at the table”.
