The Digital Cooperation Organization (DCO) is hosting the 2nd General Assembly in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on 5e of February, bringing together DCO member states to discuss strategic directions and initiatives to enable digital prosperity for all nations. Ministers representing the 13 DCO member states, along with high-level delegations of DCO observers, as well as representatives of host countries and international organizations will meet before the General Assembly to discuss the state of the digital economy and the challenges faced by all nations in achieving equitable global digital growth and development.

The 2nd The General Assembly will be the first-ever face-to-face meeting of DCO member states, marking two years of progress for the international organization created to help deliver social prosperity and growth by pooling efforts to promote and advance the digital economy.

The landmark event, taking place at the Fairmont Hotel in Riyadh, will also reflect the qualitative leaps member states have made in their transition to a technology-driven economy.

Deemah AlYahya, Secretary General from the DCO said:

“Digital technologies have enormous potential to transform economies and empower groups, including women and entrepreneurs, especially as 70% of new value created in the global economy over the next decade will be based on digitally-enabled platforms, so it is critical that all nations have the same ability to harness the power of digitization to achieve their goals. The DCO was established to accelerate digital transformation through collaboration and knowledge sharing among all stakeholders to enable countries to develop strategies and programs to drive their own digital development and participate equally in the global digital economy .”

“I am delighted that the ministers of the DCO member states will meet in Riyadh, the headquarters of the DCO, for the 2nd General Assembly to mark two years of progress towards the goals of the DCO, and to continue discussions on how to achieve digital prosperity for all in collaboration with our international observers from the ecosystem stakeholders that include the private sector representing academia, think tanks and civil society organizations,” AlYahya added.

Focused on empowering youth, women and entrepreneurs, harnessing the accelerating power of the digital economy and leapfrogging innovation, the DCO is a global multilateral organization founded in November 2020 that aims to enable digital prosperity for all through the inclusive growth of the digital economy. Thirteen Member States have joined DCO so far – Bahrain, Cyprus, Djibouti, Gambia, Ghana, Jordan, Kuwait, Pakistan, Oman, Nigeria, Rwanda, Morocco and Saudi Arabia – along with the private sector, academia and members from NGO observers.
