The WIEF Education Trust (WET) was mooted at the 2nd WIEF in 2006 and is aimed at garnering support and resources from the global community to provide education opportunities to the people at large. It is also concerned with imparting knowledge and connecting the academic world with the business community. Towards this end, the Trust has established the Global Discourse Series with the aim of imparting specific knowledge from the business community to the academic world.
