Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan spoke of the plight of refugees on Wednesday during a panel discussion at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Panellists at the WEF annual Meeting in Davos called for a paradigm shift to help the world's 60 million refugees, and said that traditional ways of helping refugees no longer work on their own as the world faces the worst crisis of displaced persons since World War II.
Jordan hosts 1.3 million refugees as of 2015. Foreign and domestic investors can relocate supply chains there and equip refugees with skill sets needed to later bring back to their home countries once peace is achieved.
Queen Rania of Jordan listens to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) president Peter Maurer during a session at the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos. A string of jihadist attacks and rising risks to the global economy overshadow the opening of the annual gathering of the world's rich and powerful in the snow-blanketed Swiss ski resort. Even as heads of state, billionaires and Hollywood megastar Leonardo DiCaprio were arriving, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) sounded the alarm about perils in the major emerging market economies and lowered its outlook for global economic growth this year.
