PRG Press Release - January 18, 2011

Washington, DC - On January 23-25, 2011 over 100 international
speakers will present at the 5th Annual Global Competitiveness
Conference in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

According to the conference website at www.gcf.org.sa "The
Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF), the only event of its kind,
is an annual meeting of global business leaders, international
political leaders, and selected intellectuals and journalists
brought together to create a dialogue with respect to the
positive impact organizational and national competitiveness can
have on local, regional and global economic and social
development. It was founded in 2006 by the Saudi Arabian General
Investment Authority (SAGIA), and is held in Riyadh, Saudi
Arabia under the patronage of HM King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz,
the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques."

Paradigm Research Group notes with considerable interest the
inclusion of the following panel: Contact: Learning from Outer
Space - Psychological and socio-cultural assumptions and
preconceptions constrain us to a large extent, and shape our
views of the universe so that we are inclined to find what we
are looking for, and fail to see what we are not. Using
knowledge gained from research in the fields of Ufology and the
search for extraterrestrial life, what might we possibly learn
about hindrances to innovation in other areas of inquiry?

The panelists have not yet been formally announced but will
likely include Nick Pope, former head of the UFO desk at the UK
Ministry of Defence; Stanton T. Friedman, nuclear physicist and
extraterrestrial phenomena researcher; Dr. Jacques Vallee,
researcher and venture capitalist; and theoretical physicist,
Dr. Michio Kaku.

According to PRG executive director Stephen Bassett, "Political
leaders and political journalists in the United States might
want to ask themselves how it is a subject the United States
Government claims has no validity is being addressed under royal
patronage at a conference in the capital of the planet's
greatest oil exporter. He added, "They might also note Saudi
Arabia is a nation which will be hugely impacted by the
inevitable end of the now 64-year old UFO/ET truth embargo and
likely subsequent introduction of extraterrestrial derived

"Last September retired Air Force officers testified at the
National Press Club to the direct interference with U. S.
nuclear facilities by extraterrestrial craft. These men all held
high security clearances. The political media, in particular the
Washington Post, did not even bother to ask the Department of
Defense for comment. One nation after another is proactively
releasing thousands of UFO/ET related files. The Vatican and the
Royal Society of London are holding conferences addressing the
implications of extraterrestrial life. It's time for the U. S.
Congress and the political media to grow up and wake up. It's
time for the Obama administration to speak to this issue or be
left behind."
