The second Government Communication Forum (GCF 2013), being held under the patronage of Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, will open on Sunday in Sharjah. The two-day event will address the theme "Effective Communication...Unified Message.”

The forum is being attended by leading academic, political and media figures, prominent thought leaders and communication experts from all over the world, in addition to a large number of government communication professionals from within the UAE and abroad.

The GCF 2013's key themes will identify pathways to establish successful government communication in the Arab world.

Among those scheduled to participate in the event are Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, former secretary-general of the United Nations Kofi Annan, former secretary-general of the Arab League Amr Mousa and former US Ambassador to the United Nations Andrew Young.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan will open the forum with a keynote speech. This will be followed by an address by Kofi Annan, who will share his experiences with the United Nations, his vision regarding the latest developments at a regional and global level, and his opinion regarding the role of effective communication in overcoming obstacles to real-life challenges.

GCF 2013, which hosts around 40 speakers from the Arab region and the world, will be centred around the need to switch the current principles of government communication from "talking to people” to "talking with people” and the need for more flexibility in the light of the civil movements witnessed across the world at large, and the Arab world in particular.

Speakers include high-profile political, government, media and academic figures, in addition to experts in the field of government communication from all over the world.

Sheikh Sultan Bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, chairman of Sharjah Media Centre, said a great deal of care and attention has gone into ensuring this important event provides the right platform that esteemed guests require.

More than 300 media representatives are expected to attend the forum from various local, regional and international media organisations. This would ensure that print, broadcast and online readers and viewers are able to stay up-to-date with all the discussions and activities taking place in this first-of-its-kind event.

Ahmed Al Bairaq, head of the Media Committee, confirmed that all the preparations for setting up the forum's media centre were completed. Equipped with the latest technology and telecommunication facilities, the media centre would act as a news hub, enabling all journalists, correspondents, reporters and other media representatives to carry out their daily tasks with ease and efficiency. – The Gulf Today
