DUBAI - Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence, praised the exceptional participation and worldwide attention garnered by the World Governments Summit (WGS), commending its commitment to addressing "issues serving humanity."

Speaking to the Emirates News Agency (WAM) on the sidelines of the World Government Summit, which kicked off in Dubai earlier today, Sheikh Nahyan lauded the summit's emphasis on artificial intelligence (AI), highlighting its potential to safeguard communities against emerging technologies.

He reiterated the substantial and extensive presence at the 2024 summit, featuring a wide range of programmes and discussions to benefit the UAE and the global community.
