10TH WIEF THEME
Innovative Partnerships for Economic Growth
The world has seen the rise and fall of economies. The once powerful dollar was severely weakened in the aftermath of the global debt crisis. The strong Euro was also threatened with disintegration after the near collapse of some of the union's key economies. In the wake of the crisis, economic powerhouses such as China and Russia are transforming the global economic landscape, ending the monopoly of the dollar.
With that, the world saw the emergence of strong economies in Africa, Asia, and other continents, bringing to the fire new players in the global economy. In such context, innovative partnerships are more paramount than ever before in forging greater collaboration between nations and bringing a new era of prosperity for the global economy.
