Riyadh, January 4, 2012
Hundreds of business and NGO leaders and intellectuals will converge in Riyadh at an upcoming summit that is expected to offer insight on the continuing economic and financial problems affecting the world.
The sixth edition of Global Competitiveness Forum (CGF) will run from January 21 to 24 at Four Seasons Hotel.
GCF 2012 is hosted by the Saudi Arabian General Investment Authority (Sagia), which oversees the foreign direct investment (FDI) flow into Saudi Arabia.
Every year, the event addresses the concept of competitiveness from diverse perspectives presented by the keynote speakers and panel sessions attended by leaders and experts in various fields.
The event's key theme is 'The Entrepreneurship Imperative'. The speakers' list for GCF 2012 consists of over 100 business leaders representing diverse sectors such as the government, NGOs, education and training, arts, media and advertising, IT, entrepreneurship, finance consultancy, and industries such as aviation, chemicals, electrical and automobiles.
One of the interesting highlights of GCF 2012 is the dominance of NGO leaders in the speakers' list. The non-profit organizations make up the largest single bloc of speakers at the GCF. Different panel sessions will explore the main theme from different angles.
The GCF 2012 also consists of major sessions dedicated to youth and business start-ups. Many of the businessmen and businesswomen in the country are of young age; they are the driving force behind the small and medium business sector. – TradeArabia News Service
