Danil Kerimi, regional deputy head of the Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution Network affiliated to World Economic Forum, delivered a speech on leadership in the intelligence era and said a more inclusive leadership and collaboration system are needed to tackle the challenges brought by the fourth industrial revolution.

In the new era of revolution, Kerimi said there would be fundamental changes in the global economy along with environmental challenges, regional competition, economic disparities and technological disruption.

Thus, he suggested world leaders should work together to "make sustained, positive and systemic change and develop the collaborative platforms" though formal dialogue and cooperation.

"We believe any problem of a magnitude capable of impacting our world, or a whole region or industry, needs to be addressed in a systemic way, and all efforts need to be integrated and aggregated for scale and impact," he noted.
