Participants are discussing how governments could tap into the innovations and technologies to resolve challenges humanity faces.

“This important meeting serves as an analytic platform for future trends, innovations and opportunities,” said Martin Bruncko, AeroMobil strategy and finance director, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “It’s an opportunity to show innovations, best practices and creative solutions to future challenges.”

They discussed capabilities and opportunities that their flying car could bring to the transport systems in vast suburban areas and in countries with less developed road infrastructure.

More than 3,000 participants from more than 100 countries attend WGS, which is under the patronage of United Arab Emirates Vice-President Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Participants can exchange knowledge and experience from the area of technology, TASR wrote.
