Speaking on Sunday at the World Government Summit held from February 12 to 14 in Dubai, he added that “what happened in the world over the last year shows the need for states to regain the confidence of their peoples, as a first step towards achieving development “.
Regarding the situation of young people and women in North Africa and the Middle East, she said that the empowerment of these categories remains relatively low in these regions.
