The world’s leading foreign direct investment platform will be held from April 8 to 10, 2019 at the Dubai World Trade Centre and will be supported by ECI to promote international investments and global expansion of UAE businesses.
This year’s theme, ‘Mapping the Future of FDI: Enriching World Economies through Digital Globalisation’, is a topic that will resonate with UAE-based exporters looking to access markets outside of the UAE as it will give them a glimpse into how the future of FDI landscape will be influenced by digital globalisation.
The focal point of the event is to bring together a distinguished pool of thought leaders, policy makers, regional and international investors, academicians, entrepreneurs and specialists to discuss and demonstrate the latest market intelligence and strategies on attracting foreign direct investments. The event is a significant platform especially for UAE businesses that are looking to penetrate high potential and high growth global markets.
Massimo Falcioni, CEO, ECI said: “ECI is proud to support Annual Investment Meeting, an initiative of the UAE Ministry of Economy, held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai. ECI is well-positioned to play a significant role in the development of the country’s non-oil exports, trade, investments, and strategic sectors, in line with the Vision 2021 agenda. By participating as a gold sponsor, ECI aims to leverage on the Annual Investment Meeting, a leading event for foreign direct investments by creating awareness amongst the UAE businesses regarding the importance of risk mitigation solutions that can support their growth and international expansion. AIM 2019 presents an opportunity for ECI to emphasise the support it extends to local businesses, facilitating access to funding for them to tap international markets. This year’s participation will further allow ECI to showcase the Shariah-compliant and conventional risk mitigation tools and solutions to meet these companies’ needs.”
Massimo Falcioni will also deliver the keynote address in support to UAE's sustainable economic diversification growth strategy at one of the plenary sessions.
