Speakers discussed a sophisticated pioneer model: a combination of the virtual, digital AIWS City and a real city of Phan Thiet – NovaWorld Phan Thiet.

Bui Thanh Nhon, Chairman of Nova Group said, “The city of Phan Thiet will be the place for the World Leadership Alliance-Club de Madrid and the Michael Dukakis Institute to hold important annual events that gather presidents, prime ministers, and top thinkers from around the world, most especially in 2022, which will be marked by the theme of Building a New Economy for the world in the digital and artificial intelligence era.

Thanks to the partnership with the Michael Dukakis Institute, NovaWorld Phan Thiet, will serve as the venue to announce new achievements in the history of artificial intelligence and the digital economy.”

Governor Michael Dukakis said, “The AIWS City will create new values as AIWS Rewards and presents AIWS Awards to honor new ideas, initiatives, and solutions by thinkers and creators in an effort to build a civilized, prosperous, peaceful, and happy world. We are glad to collaborate with NovaWorld Phan Thiet, World Leadership Alliance Club de Madrid to organize significant events, notably the Conference in Phan Thiet in 2022 – a foundation to contribute to building Phan Thiet as the significant Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions destination in the world.”
