Amir H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani arrived in the French capital, Paris, yesterday evening to participate in Paris Peace Forum, which will be held tomorrow, at the invitation of the President of the French Republic, Emmanuel Macron.

HH the Amir is accompanied by an official delegation, QNA reported.

The Paris Peace Forum was initiated by the French President to revive collective governance, international cooperation, norms and institutions at a time when global challenges have never been so pressing. Conceived as an annual gathering of all actors of global governance, from states and international organisations to civil society, it features projects and initiatives meant at improving global governance in five key domains: peace and security, environment, development, new technologies and inclusive economy.

The first edition of the Forum will be inaugurated tomorrow as dozens of heads of state and government are invited to commemorate the fragile peace that followed the First World War – until the world failed to defend common rules and international cooperation.

According to official website of the Forum, The Paris Peace Forum is a new annual event based on a simple idea: international cooperation is key to tackling global challenges and ensuring durable peace. To support collective action, it gathers all actors of global governance under one roof for three days – states, international organisations, local governments, NGOs and foundations, companies, experts, journalists, trade unions, religious groups and citizens.

The Forum is centered on those who seek to develop solutions for today’s trans-border challenges. It is focused on their 120 governance projects and initiatives from around the world, selected from 850 applications, presented in five villages: peace and security, environment, development, new technologies and inclusive economy.

It offers these projects visibility, feedback and connections to potential implementers. Tenprojects will also be elected by participants and the Selection Committee of the Forum to benefit from special support by the Paris Peace Forum until the second edition in November 2019.
