The former prime minister of Libya has warned that states will fail if they don’t adapt to a global world, work towards inclusiveness and recognise that knowledge creates capital – not the other way round.

During Day 2 of the World Government Summit, HE Dr. Mahmoud Gebril reminded delegates to measure their countries in a global context, and become competitive by acquiring essential skills to manage: 

  1. Complexity
  2. Creativity and innovation
  3. Uncertainty
  4. The flow of information
  5. Diversity

 

“Government systems need to be flexible to keep up with the speed of change. The structure of government also needs to change; decentralising to allow bodies of people to micro-govern, keeping the big portfolios, such as foreign affairs… etc. centralised.”
