Jordan’s King Abdullah II best summed up the importance of the World Economic Forum on the Middle East and North Africa, which ended last Sunday evening, with a serious attempt to revive the peace process in the Middle East.
For the seventh time in ten years, the forum was held on the Jordanian bank of the Dead Sea. The forum this year was distinguished by its concern over the importance of finding job opportunities for Arab youth and by its attempt to exit the dead end regarding the conflict between the Palestinians and the Israelis.
