Geneva, 9 October 2018 - More than 5,000 participants from 160 countries will meet in Geneva to thrash out major new investment-for-development initiatives at UNCTAD’s World Investment Forum 2018 in the Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland from 22-26 October.

The high-level conference comes amid mounting disquiet about declining investment flows and their impact on efforts to meet the ambition of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the international community three years ago.

“Global flows of foreign direct investment fell by 23% in 2017,” United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said. “Cross-border investment in developed and transition economies dropped sharply, while growth was near zero in developing economies. With only a very modest recovery predicted for 2018, this negative trend is a long-term concern for policymakers worldwide, especially for developing countries.”

Private sector investment in developing countries, totaling $3.9 trillion a year, is needed to generate economic activity to meet the Sustainable Development Goals - the core of the 2030 Agenda -according to UNCTAD research. Current levels leave an investment gap of some $2.5 trillion.

Marking its 10th anniversary, the biennial World Investment Forum remains the premier venue to forge partnerships between investment and development stakeholders to close this gap.

A unique gathering of high-level players from the global investment-development community, the forum provides an opportunity to hold an open dialogue, brainstorm solution-oriented initiatives and foster global alliances to advance prosperity for all. This year’s event comprises some 60 functions, including three summits, five ministerial roundtables, private-sector led sessions and several awards ceremonies.

Besides giving participants a chance to spotlight priorities for attracting and channeling investment that will drive sustainable development, the forum sessions will also focus on transformative actions and innovative financing modes for growth, such as blockchain, sustainability bonds, and blended finance.

Speakers from business and special guests include more than 30 top executives of multinationals, among them Aviva, De Beers, Coca-Cola, ContourGlobal, Jumia, Lavazza, PwC, Siemens Financial Services, UBS, and the heads of stock exchanges including those in Bombay, Johannesburg, Luxembourg, Nasdaq Nordic, SIX and Shenzen, as well as the leaders of sovereign wealth and pension funds.

Fourteen heads of state and government have confirmed they will attend, including those from Armenia, Bangladesh, Botswana, Cambodia, the Central African Republic, Kenya, Lesotho, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Malawi, Mongolia, Montenegro, Namibia, Sierra Leone, and Switzerland.

More than fifty ministers from developed and developing countries and 21 heads of international organizations will join them.

In addition to United Nations entities, 50 other organizations will be at the event, including the Commonwealth, the International Labour Organization, the Inter-Parliamentary Union, the International Olympic Committee, the International Organization of Securities Commissions, the International Telecommunication Union, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the World Economic Forum, the World Trade Organization and the World Bank Group.

These partnerships have generated exciting new content for this year’s participants, including an in-depth look at the relationship between sport and development, co-hosted with the International Olympic Committee and, on the annual United Nations Day, 24 October, a session on the role of investment in peace and security.

Five independent tracks will run in parallel with the main forum, with a special programme for parliamentarians, a multidisciplinary academic conference, an investment village, the 35th anniversary session of the Intergovernmental Working Group of Experts on International Standards of Accounting and Reporting (ISAR), and the 2018 UNCTAD Youth Forum, taking youth entrepreneurship as its theme.

Previous World Investment Forums took place in Accra, Ghana (2008), Xiamen, China (2010), Doha, Qatar (2012), Geneva, Switzerland (2014) and Nairobi, Kenya (2016).

Paris, France - At the Paris Motor Show, Groupe Renault has unveiled EZ-ULTIMO, its robot-vehicle concept, an autonomous, electric, connected, and shared mobility service solution offering a premium travel experience.

“Available on-demand, for a single trip, for an hour or a day, EZ-ULTIMO caters to people looking to enhance a special moment through a private trip in a city, a premium tourist experience or businesses looking to offer premium journey services to its clients,” Renault announced.

“As consumer trends change and people are enjoying ride-hailing services more and more, a new paradigm for mobility will emerge. Embodying this revolution, Renault EZ-ULTIMO offers a uniquely luxurious experience aboard a robot-vehicle that can be adapted depending on the service provider,” said Laurens van den Acker, SVP Corporate Design.

The EZ-ULTIMO concept is a robot-vehicle. The traveler can genuinely enjoy the journey in a space designed like an intimate lounge, equipped with all the comfort and services needed to either relax or concentrate.

“Through its design, EZ-ULTIMO embodies the EASY LIFE genes of the Renault brand. Welcoming and comfortable, it offers a wide automatic opening and a seat on a swiveling slide for easy passenger access. For an intimate journey, the car protects the passengers from outside view by slightly transparent facets on the upper part of the bodywork. The refined interior of EZ-ULTIMO reflects French elegance inspired by the world of the living,” Renault said.

New Delhi, 29 September 2018 — Prime Minister Narendra Modi today addressed a Conference on Academic Leadership on Education for Resurgence, in New Delhi, in which the Vice-Chancellors and Directors from more than 350 universities in India participated.

Mr, Modi said that when one thinks of resurgence or revival, the first image that comes to mind is of Swami Vivekananda, who presented before the world, the strength of Indian thought.

The Prime Minister recalled Swami Vivekananda’s emphasis on self-reliance, character building, and human values, as elements of education. The Prime Minister said innovation is another vital element of culture today.

Recalling the ancient Indian texts, the Vedas, the Prime Minister said that we could not imagine our society, our country, and even our lives, without knowledge. He said that our ancient universities such as Taxila, Nalanda, and Vikramshila, gave importance to innovation, besides knowledge.

Narendra Modi said that today, no country or person could live in isolation. He mentioned the importance of thinking concerning ‘global citizen’ or ‘global village.’ He said our Universities and Colleges should be leveraged to find solutions to the challenges facing us. We should “Interlink Institutions to Innovate and Incubate,” he added.

UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay, along with world leaders, notably French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Theresa May and Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, has called on the international community to do more for girls’ education and “Leave no girl behind.”

“Girls’ education is the most powerful driver for global transformation. It is also a fundamental right and a matter of human dignity,” said Director-General Azoulay. She also underscored that “today’s meeting is indeed a strong signal of high-level political commitment to a topic that is at the crossroads of two of the most important challenges of our time: education and gender equality.” However, she also called for more coordination: “UNESCO can serve as a coordinating hub,” noting, “We must work in synergy and on a sustained basis over time if we are to deliver on our ambition collectively.”

The event gave focus to the urgent need for countries to work together for the 132 million girls that are not in school today. It featured three-panel discussions which underscored the determination to do more for the education of girls in conflict and crisis-affected countries.
