The Doha Forum 2018 opened on Dec. 15 in Doha, Qatar, with policymakers, business leaders, and academics from around the world arriving to discuss some of the most pressing challenges the world faces today.

In his speech, the President of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno Garces, explained that the Doha Forum is a global platform to achieve the most ambitious goals in the modern world and to launch an effective global dialogue among all people on possible challenges ahead.
