Bahamas represented at Crans Montana Forum
William Wong, a partner in Darville-Wong Realty, was an invited guest of the Crans Montana Forum on Africa and South Cooperation, which was held for the fifth time in Dakhla, Morocco from March 14 to 17 under the patronage of Mohammed VI of Morocco.
The Crans Montana Forum is a non-governmental international organization that was established in 1986. Its mission is working “Towards a more Humane World”. Working with governments, international and regional organizations such as the United Nations, the European Union and numerous non-governmental organizations, the forum aims to strengthen international cooperation by promoting good practices and allowing a permanent dialogue between those in the public and private sectors who are the real decision-makers.
The Crans Montana Forum organizes several events per year with approximately one hundred countries meeting in a private and informal setting to discuss the political, social, economic and security challenges of our century.
The forum this year featured an in-depth debate on building a powerful and modern Africa dedicated to its youth. It brought together heads of state, government ministers, regional and international organizations, ministers of parliament and successful businesses indigenous to Africa and other corners of the world.
Notable key topics included sustainable energy, security environmental challenges, the digital economy, public health, sustainable agriculture and the promotion of youth entrepreneurship and women’s leadership.
