Annual Investment Meeting 2017 to focus on government’s role in attracting investments and facilitating entrepreneurship and innovation

According to the 2016 Global Investment Report published by UNCTAD, the United Arab Emirates is the 9th largest Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) recipient in Asia. Its main investors are the UK, Japan and Hong Kong. The UAE government plays a strategic role in attracting foreign investments and driving innovation. In wake of the progress, The Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) which will take place in Dubai from 2nd- 4th April 2017 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre will successfully present a strategic platform to discuss the role of government and other stakeholders in shaping a competitive business environment to attract investment, facilitate entrepreneurship and innovation.

The Meeting will provide key insights on how the government and other stakeholders stimulate and facilitate the flow of investments between countries and establish investment partnerships in vital sectors.

“National prosperity is created as competitiveness depends on the capacity of government and other important stakeholders to innovate and upgrade. As such it is important for the public and private sector to work jointly in accordance with clear frameworks for mutual benefit and growth of the country,” said Dawood Al Shezawi, CEO, AIM’s Organising Committee.

The Dubai government works in conjunction with the private sector to enhance foreign direct investments (FDI) which stand as a testimony to the diversity and readiness of Dubai’s economy and its ability to keep pace with regional and global development. In addition, the Dubai Plan 2021 has set a road map for Dubai’s prosperous future with new opportunities for investment in the infrastructure, services and knowledge sector.

At the Annual Investment Meeting (AIM), global business leaders and industry experts will discuss methods to promote their respective countries as attractive trade and investment hubs and focus on efforts that will strengthen trade relations between varied countries.

“The Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) is an ideal platform for companies to learn about business environment, investments and innovation. The past editions have proven successful in presenting a model for the future of strategic investments and this year’s session will provide a close-up look at the global investing and asset management landscape for those looking for secure and profitable investments,” said Al Shezawi.

Held under the theme ‘International Investment, Path to Competitiveness & Development’, this year’s edition of AIM will gather more than 150,000 attendees including renowned personalities, key decision makers in industry, finance and politics from the MENA region and around the globe. The international forum will be host to 100 high-level officials, 500 exhibitors and more than 100 media partners.
