President Ilves is flying to Dubai today to chair the meeting of the Cyber Security Council at the World Economic Forum. Ilves assumed the helm of the Council this year, at the request of the World Economic Forum.

The Network of Global Agenda Councils was established by the World Economic Forum in 2008, and 80 councils belong to the network. The annual meeting focuses on global issues.

Each council consists of 15-20 globally recognized experts from the private and public sectors, who exchange ideas on the global and regional issues that require the most attention. The aim is to integrate different visions into international co-operation and decision-making processes.

Once a year, all the councils meet in Dubai. The Estonian Head of State chairs the cyber security council.

President Ilves will also take part in a public discussion that focuses on the future of Internet and will meet with leaders of different countries.
