World Governments Summit (WGS) 2024: Shaping Future Governments

The World Government Summit Organization is a global non-profit entity committed to influencing the trajectory of governmental futures. Since 2013, the Summit has championed the creation of a better future for humanity by inspiring the next generation of governments. Under the theme of "Shaping Future Governments," this year's summit anticipated future opportunities and challenges, addressing the world's most pressing issues. Through its prominent agenda, WGS discussed a common approach to improve governmental work and strengthen cooperation among governments worldwide. Additionally, it focused on sharing knowledge and expertise while highlighting inspiring stories and models in governmental work.


  • Government Acceleration and Transformation: Global governments are accelerating digital transformation, bringing opportunities and challenges.
  • Artificial Intelligence and The Next Frontiers:
    Governments and organizations must prioritize aspects such as regulation, ethical design, and emerging trends to adeptly navigate the constantly evolving technological landscape.
  • Reimagining Development and Future Economies:
    Embracing emerging technologies, innovative business models, and societal trends not only fuels growth but also positions economies for long-term success. Strategic navigation through these changes is essential for building resilient and prosperous economies.
  • Future Societies and Education: Navigating the future involves exploring links between societies, education, and technology's trans- formative impact. Prioritizing inclusive, sustainable, and resilient societies drives progress in science and technology, addressing challenges and shaping a well-being-focused global future.
  • Sustainability and The New Global Shifts: The paradigm of sustainability is reshaping both global governance and the economy, with a particular emphasis on ensuring food, water, and energy security. Governments, businesses, and individuals worldwide need to adopt sustainable practices, fostering equitable access to resources and securing long-term prosperity.
  • Urbanization and Global Health Priorities: Urbanization and global health intersect for sustainable, inclusive cities. Viewing cities as innovation hubs and integrating modern mobility for efficient transport can enhance well-being and transform urban centers into futuristic, livable hubs of progress.


The spotlight shone on two pivotal themes: Artificial Intelligence (Al) and its influence on industries and societies, as well as Government Acceleration and Transformation, which explored innovative strategies for efficiency in the public sector. Al remains a prevalent topic in today’s technological landscape, sparking discussions about its implications across industries and society. Concurrently, global governments are expediting digital transformation efforts, unveiling opportunities and challenges. Policies must bridge the digital divide to promote inclusive growth amid rapid technological progress.


At the World Governments Summit in Dubai, a consensus among leading figures like Nvidia’s CEO, Jensen Huang, and the UAE’s Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, H.E. Omar Sultan AlOlama, highlighted the importance of Al in shaping the future. They discussed the role of Al in global empowerment through:

  • OPEN-SOURCE INITIATIVES: Open source denotes source code that is accessible for modification and redistribution, fostering collaboration in a decentralized software development model. A key principle is peer production, where source code and documentation are freely accessible, encouraging collaborative contributions.
  • THE CONCEPT OF “SOVEREIGN AI”: This concept urges nations to forge their own Al paths. This notion underscores the strategic importance of countries cultivating and controlling Al systems that mirror their unique cultural, social, and historical fabric.

The summit also featured debates on regulatory frameworks for Al, akin to nuclear oversight, emphasizing the need for regulations that boost innovation while addressing potential risks. A $500 million investment by the UAE for Al and tech research underscored the commitment to advancing these fields.


  • The transformative potential of Al across various sectors.
  • Al as a basic necessities similar to other essential utilities.
  • The advocacy for responsible Al development that aligns with societal values.
