THE IDEA

HOW WAS THE EFSD ESTABLISHED

The idea of establishing the Economic Forum for Sustainable Development dates to 2017, when Professor Manahel Thabet, a Saudi Professor of Economy, specializing in financial engineering and mathematics, accepted a broad invitation from the directors of independent economic institutions to an informal meeting in the City of London. This took place in the UK in February 2017.

The EFSD was launched at the British parliament with the support of APPG as an independent forum. Many events were launched later on to support the direction of the EFSD.
