AlYahya, on her part, underscored the organization's commitment to leveraging technology to foster digital economies aligned with sustainable development goals. She highlighted that the organization, initiated by several countries, aims to enhance cooperation across various fields driven by innovation, ultimately accelerating the growth of the digital economy.
Moreover, AlYahya underlined the organization's initiatives, including support for women's empowerment in the digital labor market, and programs directed at aiding entrepreneurship and small to medium-sized enterprises, contributing to realizing a digital future for all.
