About the Summit

The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is rich in human capital and poised to assume greater influence in today’s global economy. The MENA region is known not only as the driving force in global energy markets, but also for its more recent advances in technology, education, health care, and capital markets.

While continuing its progress in social, political, and economic reforms, how will the region execute strategic investments that support its vision for sustainable growth?

The inaugural Milken Institute MENA Summit will bring together a curated group of high-profile senior executives, influential investors, government officials, sovereign wealth fund directors, and philanthropists to discuss, confront, and create solutions to the region’s most pressing issues. The program will encourage action-oriented conversations with global thought leaders who have a deep understanding of the region or the sectors of focus.
