The World Government Summit 2017 will be held today – February 13 – in Dubai. The World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim will discuss how countries can channel policy, markets, and learning into growth and prosperity for their people.
According to the World Bank Group, no country or community has prospered without an educated population. Education is key for economic growth, competitiveness, and social cohesion.
It is also the foundation for innovation and development, and opens the way for lifelong opportunities, which are essential for long-term peace and stability.
