His Majesty King Abdullah on Saturday said the region stands at the gates of future, emphasising that dignity, opportunity, democracy, and peace and justice are four crucial areas that must be taken into consideration when planning the future of the Arab world.

The four gates of the Arab future are not alternatives and are inseparable, said the King, stressing that the Arabs must pass through them .

“To cement progress anywhere, we will need progress everywhere,” said the Monarch at the opening of the World Economic Forum Special Meeting on Economic Growth and Job Creation in the Arab World, which brought together more than 1,000 participants from around 50 nations.
