WEF 2023 is hosted by ICESCO
Welcome to WEF 2023 in Rabat - a pivotal event taking place during a time when our planet is facing significant challenges in health, environment, energy, and raw materials, among others. It is evident from history that in times of crisis, technology and innovation have played a critical role in finding solutions. Digital and electronic innovations, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain, Internet of Things, quantum computing, 5G/6G, cybersecurity, communication and more, are transforming the way governments, companies, and individuals address these challenges. However, it is imperative that these innovations also consider their societal acceptability and environmental impact. The "electronification" of human activities has become a catalyst for the deployment of these innovations. Objects are becoming programmable, creating new services and becoming data providers. This raises crucial questions about data regulation, governance, and location within networks. WEF 2023 in Rabat aims to bring together key players in the field of digital and electronic innovation, communication, and markets to facilitate cooperation, highlight key innovations from promising companies, research centers, and start-ups, and contribute to resolving the current crises. We will also explore growth opportunities and initiate potential partnerships, including with developing countries. I am thrilled to have each one of you here to engage in thoughtful discussions, share insights, and collectively shape the future of our industry. Let us work together to navigate these challenges and unlock new possibilities for a sustainable and innovative future.
