AMMAN – HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, Founder and Chairman of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Global (TAG.Global) attended the latest meeting of  La Verticale Africa-Mediterranean-Europe (AME) Foundation’s Wise Persons forum in his capacity as its founding Chairman and Co-president.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh was joined by the Honorary President of La Verticale, HE Jean-Claude Juncker, former president of the European Commission; HE Elisabeth Guigou, former Minister of France; alongside other dignitaries representing AME countries. The forum convened for the second time since its establishment in July 2020 to discuss important changes in governance, the progress of its activities and to feed ongoing initiatives relevant for AME integration. 

Projects related to renewable energy investments, special and secure economic zones, industrialization of the automotive sector, e-learning and academic cooperation were presented to the participants. The forum discussed how to strengthen and support these projects and explored possible new joint initiatives that can be undertaken within La Verticale AME Foundation framework.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh discussed the establishment of the La Verticale digital university that could reach millions of students across the three regions. It could also help to democratize education and in turn provide greater opportunities for economic prosperity. He emphasized the need to develop knowledge workers who possess the technology skills needed in the growing digital economy.

As a leading international figure ICT and digital education, Dr. Abu Ghazaleh reaffirmed his commitment to developing a digital Africa and pledged the support of TAG Global and its team of international consultants to help La Verticale achieve its objectives.

La Verticale AME

La Verticale AME is a political project, which finds its origins in civil society and that is actively supported by several political leaders. Those who adhere to this project defend the same conviction: Europe and Africa, across the Mediterranean, share similar challenges and a common destiny. It is therefore necessary to jointly create a permanent, independent and forward-looking instrument, shared between South and North, in order to prepare for a common future and to propose concrete projects and actions. 

The Foundation, which was formally established in April 2019 under Belgian law, was co-founded by TAG.Global and the Mediterranean World Economic Foresight Institute (IPEMED). Its funding will come from both companies and public institutions.
