Dubai, UAE: HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), Founder and Chairman of WETEX and Chairman of WGES, has announced that DEWA will organise the 22nd Water, Energy, Technology and Environment Exhibition (WETEX 2020) from 26-28 October 2020 at the site of Expo 2020 Dubai. DEWA is the Official Sustainable Energy Partner of the Expo 2020 Dubai, which will be held for the first time in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia.
The announcement was made at a gala dinner DEWA organised at Grand Hyatt hotel, Dubai, to honour the partners and sponsors of the 6th World Green Economy Summit (WGES), the 21st WETEX, and the 4th Dubai Solar Show. DEWA organises WETEX and the Dubai Solar Show under the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; and under the patronage of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance and President of DEWA.
In his speech at the event, Al Tayer extended his gratitude to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum for his patronage of WGES with the theme 'Innovative Technologies for a Sustainable Economy.' He also thanked HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance and President of DEWA, for honouring the opening ceremony.
“Under the umbrella of Green Week, the success of these leading events in Dubai is a testament to the UAE's commitment to supporting and promoting the sustainable development and the transition towards a green economy. This success also affirms Dubai's position as a leading global hub for clean energy and green economy, based on a vision that recognises the importance of achieving a balance between development and protecting the environment and natural resources. Since its inception, the World Green Economy Summit has played a vital role in formulating effective solutions to the damaging impact of environmental degradation and the irresponsible use of natural resources. WETEX has also established its position as one of the largest and most important global exhibitions in water, environment and energy,” said Al Tayer.
“The UAE has made considerable progress towards sustainability, supported by ambitious projects that are redefining the future of energy, water and the environment. In light of the ambitious vision and the overall development of Dubai, which it translates into major projects and promising opportunities, especially in energy, water, and the environment, cooperation and integration between the public and private sectors has become a foundation to achieve the Emirate’s ambitions and consolidate its position as a developed model that provides a favourable climate and a highly supportive environment for investments. DEWA has made significant accomplishments in this regard and we gather here tonight to celebrate the achievements and successes of DEWA and the partners and sponsors of the World Green Economy Summit, WETEX, and the Dubai Solar Show,” added Al Tayer.
