To discuss ‘Global Political and Economic Changes after Coronavirus Crisis’ Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah University Hosts Abu-Ghazaleh


AMMAN - Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah University in Fez City- Morocco hosted HE Dr. Talal Abu-Ghazaleh, founder and chairman of Talal Abu-Ghazaleh Global (TAG.Global) to discuss ‘Global Political and Economic Changes after the Coronavirus Crisis.’

During the meeting, moderated by Dr. Nabil Balmaki, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh stressed that 2020 will be a decisive year, as it will witness a conflict between the two superpowers (the US and China) on different industrial, commercial and military levels, due to fears that Beijing may take over from Washington the leadership of the world, indicating that US President Donald Trump will use possible war with China as excuse for a second presidential term.   

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh pointed out that the West tries to show Coronavirus (COVID-19) as the main reason behind the world economic crises, emphasizing that these claims defy the truth because the world has historically experienced many pandemics such as the Great Plague which had in the past struck Europe and killed around 50% of its population.

“What is going on could be described as media intensification; this pandemic will remain and we will be living with it for a long time, and it is about time for the world to wake up from its selfish preoccupations,” Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh said. 

Meanwhile, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh attributed the current disputes among the Arab countries to the Israeli occupation describing it as a cancerous implant in the Arab region; which will inevitably come to an end. He pointed out that after that the Arab region will start its reconstruction especially after the pandemic is over, for two main reasons: first, because it is the most affected area, secondly, because it is the most important area in the cycle of conflict  for its wealth and many other competitive advantages. 

Furthermore, Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh praised the role of youth ‘Makers of Nations’ Future’, stressing the need to build their capacities in line with the foundations of Knowledge Revolution, noting that education is the most influential authority that needs to develop its methods to become digital, and be transformed from indoctrination to innovation. 

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh expressed hopes that the Arab nation would restore its  leading role in the world especially as it is qualified for this purpose. He added that TAG.Global has established the most important Arab platform for Arab researchers (TAGIPEDIA), in line with its keenness to preserve and promote Arabic language, to be the first Arab encyclopedia of its kind that includes more than one million entries.

Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh concluded by talking about his realized dream by establishing the first Arab factory for manufacturing, designing and producing smart devices in the Arab region so that every Arab citizen would be able to purchase his/her laptop with high-specs at competitive prices to put their hands on the tools of knowledge and innovation.
