The Summit was created and incubated by a team of experts from different disciplines, designed on the cutting edge of futurism, policymaking, technology, service delivery and innovation in an effort to bring government, business and civil society together.

Leading with a Vision for Humanity

In 2013, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, through his prescient vision, commissioned the establishment and launch of the World Government Summit, a global knowledge exchange program for governments. Thus, the Summit was created and incubated by a team of experts gathered from different disciplines. It was designed on the cutting edge of futurism, policymaking, technology, service delivery and innovation, in an effort to bring government, business and civil society disciplines together under one umbrella. The World Government Summit ushers in a new era of responsibility where governments can serve humanity better and more sustainable ways.

The World Government Summit is poised to scale further heights of excellence and inclusion under the dynamic leadership of:

His Excellency Mohammad Abdulla AlGergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs and the Future – UAE | Chairman of the World Government Summit Organization

Her Excellency Ohood Bint Khalfan Al Roumi, Minister of State for Happiness – UAE | Vice Chair of the World Government Summit Organization

Mr. Omar Sultan AlOlama, Managing Director of the World Government Summit Organization
