Beijing to host New Economy Forum in November

Bloomberg and the China Center for International Economic Exchanges has announced that the 2019 New Economy Forum will be held in Beijing from Nov. 20 to 22 on the shores of Yanqi Lake, looking out at the Great Wall. Nearly 500 of the world’s most influential business executives, technology innovators, government officials, experts and academics from over 60 countries and regions will gather in Beijing to propose solutions to the massive disruption that is occurring, as the balance of global economic power shifts toward the Asia Pacific. 

These include Michael R. Bloomberg, Dr. Henry A. Kissinger, Bill Gates, Zeng Peiyan, Condoleezza Rice, Strive Masiyiwa, Jack Ma, Lawrence H. Summers and Lubna Al-Olayan from Saudi Arabia

Launched in 2018 by Bloomberg, the New Economy Forum is committed to promoting the smooth transition from the old economy — one based on labor-intensive manufacturing and trade in goods — to a new one focused on industrial automation, digital services and exchanges of data. 

“We are experiencing a period of profound change in the world, where new economic centers are emerging, new trading alliances are being formed and new technologies are upending industries,” said Bloomberg. “The New Economy Forum will address these seismic shifts through high-level and frank dialogue, while also fostering private-public collaboration. China is an integral part of these discussions, and the New Economy Forum will bring leaders there from around the world to tackle common challenges and advance our shared interests”

PISJ-ES Plays an integral role in strengthening the Pak-Saudi socio-cultural synergy

The first dawn of Libra marks the anniversary of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia which establishes a deepest connotation, being one of the most gracious and enriching countries around the globe.

On the occasion of Saudi National Day, I extend my heartfelt felicitations to the custodian of the two Holy Mosques, His Excellency King Salman bin Abdul Aziz, the Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman and people of the entire Kingdom.

With its unique eccentricity, Saudi Arabia emits such a compelling oomph that binds all who connect with it whether being an expat living miles away from their homeland or a visitor from any country, ethnicity or culture.

With the rich background, initiating from the beginning of the world itself, and induced by the timeless teachings of our last Prophet, Muhammad, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia establishes a great relation among all Muslims from around the world to reckon this land of peace and brotherhood as the spiritual hub of Islam.

Besides, its air of peace and harmony blows stirring religious inspiration for Muslims that connect them with their roots.

Millions of Muslims internationally are uniquely attracted to visit the blessed mosques of Makkah and Madinah as pilgrims to satiate their religious obligations.

Today is the day for all Saudis and those who dwell in this pure land to celebrate their individuality, peace and sovereignty as a nation.

However, alongside the celebrations, we must focus our sincere endeavors towards the development of this country in our exclusive capacities with hard work, dedication and respect for the law to preserve the country’s capabilities and achievements and take those to the new heights of glory and achievement.

Pakistan International School Jeddah - English section has been playing an integral role in strengthening our indestructible ties of the Pak-Saudi relationship.

Our students feel pride in studying its culture and language which reinforce their profound intimacy with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Both the countries maintain exemplary bilateral military, economic, security and cultural relations.

This cultural synergy is supporting to elevate the overall socio-economical structure in terms of trade, values, health and education in both the countries.

The Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s overwhelmingly heartfelt statement during his recent visit to Pakistan – “I am the ambassador of Pakistan in Saudi Arabia,” not only endorses our fondness towards each other but also reflects our combined desire to take the history of our strategic relationships to a new level.

Sharing the joy of celebrating the Saudi National day with great pride and enthusiasm, I pray for the eternal peace in both the countries and their everlasting friendship.

Long live Saudi Arabia and Pak-Saudi friendship!
