In this talk, I invited Yuki to share his experience of working at the United Nations in Egypt and share his vision for changing the way we cooperate internationally by incorporating more AI and IT.
For anyone who is interested in making a real change in the growing gap between the rich and the poor, working for the UN might be their first career choice. The UN has saved millions of lives from deepest poverty and boosted health and education across the world. It is often criticized for being undemocratic, very expensive, and other failures in vital areas. And yet, people still look to the UN to play a key role in resolving challenges across multiple spheres.
As Yuki suggested in our dialogue, it is not surprising that we need to change the way we organize international aid. Since the UN was set up in 1945, the world has changed drastically, and it is important for the organization to adapt to changing circumstances. If steps aren't taken, the relevance of UN is likely to diminish. The world needs an effective UN but how much we should be relying on it is another question.
I can't agree more with Yuki when he says that a more vibrant business sector is urgently needed to support developing countries. The ongoing sluggish economic growth engenders pubic dissatisfaction and social divisions.
I hope Yuki finds his specialty through business and finds a way to go back to the UN. With his passion and determination, he is someone that can make a positive impact for greater change.
Next up is Mana who shares her experience living in Dubai.
