President Clinton Highlights The Importance Of Government, NGO's And The Private Sector Working Together To Educate Children In The Developing World

DUBAI, UAE, March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Speaking at the inaugural Global Education and Skills Forum in Dubai where 500 delegates from 50 countries are discussing how public private partnerships can solve the global demand for better education, President Clinton said:

"It is projected that by 2050 that 86 per cent of the world's children will be living in what are now developing countries. There is no way that Government's alone or international aid flows alone will be able to provide those children with the quality of education they need to be full participants in global society. This is especially relevant for women and girls.

"The great thing about a public private partnership is that you have the dedication of the public interest with Government bodies and the dedication to keeping score and getting concrete results that is a necessity in the private sector. We're just beginning what I am convinced will be a very exciting story throughout the 21 st century.

"We have to re-imagine what our responsibilities and our opportunities are. In this decade six of the world's fastest growing economies are in Africa. In the following decade seven of the fastest growing economies of the world will be in Africa. We need to help them through public private partnerships to rapidly scale up their own human capital by educating their children. We are seeing the same thing in poor countries in South East Asia.

"We need this commitment to education everywhere and almost everywhere success will require a level of public private partnership never before achieved."

The Forum, jointly organized by UNESCO, The Commonwealth Business Council, The UAE Government and GEMS Education will examine ways to create real, sustainable and scalable change to education systems at global and local levels.
