DUBAI: Ministry of Economy in the UAE has announced key insights on the 7th Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) agenda, which will be held in Dubai from April 2 to 4, 2017 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre under the theme ‘International Investment, Path to Competitiveness & Development’.

The details of the international forum were shared at a press conference held in Armani Hotel in Dubai on Tuesday. The press meeting witnessed the presence of Abdullah Al Saleh, Undersecretary for Foreign Trade & Industry, UAE Ministry of Economy; Khalifa Bin Salem Al Mansouri, Acting Undersecretary of the Abu Dhabi Economic Development Department; Jamal Al Jarwan, Secretary-General, UAE International Investors Council and Dawood Al Shezawi, CEO, AIM’s Organising Committee.

Abdullah Al Saleh expressed his delight for the UAE’s hosting of AIM after witnessing remarkable success in its past seasons. HE Abdullah Al Saleh said that the Ministry of Economy in UAE is extremely proud to be associated to a prestigious event as this, which has become an international platform for drawing foreign direct investments. In the past few years AIM has made significant achievements and has helped support the UAE and varied international countries position themselves as lucrative hubs for the foreign direct investments.

Abdullah Al Saleh extended a warm welcome to all the attendees at the press conference including AIM’s partners and the participants from all over the world. He extended warm wishes to the participants and inspired them to achieve their goals through the medium of this international forum.

Abdullah Al Saleh explained the objective of AIM’s theme this year- ‘International Investment, Path to Competitiveness & Development’ by emphasising the importance of international investments that represent a safety valve in the economy of any country. He also highlighted the reasons for focusing on foreign direct investments considering the global trends moving towards sustainability that ensure a better future for the generation to come.

Abdullah Al Saleh also highlighted the UAE government’s strategy, which position the country among the top 10 countries in the world in terms of government competitiveness and happiness. A large extent of this strategy is governed by international investments as these investments generate a stable and secure economy which eventually raise the happiness quotient among the country’s citizens and visitors.

Khalifa Bin Salem Al Mansouri, Acting Undersecretary of the Abu Dhabi Economic Development Department emphasised the importance of the participation of the emirate of Abu Dhabi as a ‘City Partner’ in the Annual Investment Meeting 2017.

In a statement issued during a press conference to announce the opening of the event, HE Khalifa Al Mansouri said this is particularly important in the light of the growing number of countries and companies participating in the Meeting and the accompanying exhibition, especially those engaged in implementing major investment projects in Abu Dhabi. The government of Abu Dhabi is keen to maintain close investment ties with these countries and companies, especially those from Asia and Europe.

Khalifa Al Mansouri expected that Abu Dhabi’s participation in this year’s Meeting, which is led by ADDED, will be successful.
