AIM 2015 is focused on the concepts of innovation and technology transfer through Foreign Direct Investment (FDI)

UAE Ministry of Economy (MoE), organizer of the 5th Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) has invited international delegations to visit the Dubai Government Achievements Exhibition (DGAE 2015) which is being held concurrently under the directive of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai from 30 March – 1 April 2015 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Two tours will be organized, one to the DGAE for catching glimpses of achievements of several government departments and agencies in Dubai on the final two days of AIM, and the other to the AIM exhibition taking place alongside the meeting.

AIM has attracted participants from over 140 countries, including Ministers, Undersecretaries and top government officials and decision-makers.

H.E. Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri, UAE Minister of Economy, said the planned tours reflect the ministry’s drive to demonstrate to prominent AIM delegates the achievements of government departments of Dubai as well as the federal and regional entities.

AIM 2015 represents a global umbrella for all those interested in the investment business, including decision-makers, government officials, investors, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, experts, analysts and academics from around the world. Participating countries have the opportunity to present information about their investment opportunities through focused session held during the forum.

“We look at AIM as a significant event to exchange expertise. It is a platform where international investors meet and study existing investment opportunities in emerging markets. The forum has succeeded in acquiring a global stature by attracting a mix of senior government officials, owners of private entities, entrepreneurs from around the world to review the prospects for developing successful investment partnerships. It provides appropriate and feasible investment options for international and regional investors,” added H.E. Al Mansouri

AIM 2015 is focused on the concepts of innovation and technology transfer through Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), under the specific theme of ‘Sustainable Development through FDI Induced Innovation and Technology Transfer’.

Dr. Ahmed Nuseirat, Coordinator General, Dubai Government Excellence Programme (DGEP), the organising body of DGAE, praised the move of MoE to promote the exhibition among foreign delegates: “This is an exceptional edition by all counts, especially as we have opened the doors for federal and regional government institutions to participate.”

“This is an important step to review the level of innovation and creativity adopted by government agencies in Dubai, which will infuse greater confidence in the Emirate on the global stage. We will intensify our efforts to bring benefits to all participants in the exhibition by facilitating opportunities to meet international delegations coming to AIM,” said Dr. Nuseirat.

Mr. Dawood Al Shezawi, CEO, AIM’s Organizing Committee said: “We are in touch with several global delegations visiting the AIM to join these tours and explore opportunities for cooperation with government institutions in the UAE and the region. This is a strategy to promote FDIs in the country, which is a very effective way to boost investments in emerging markets.”

AIM Organizing Committee has widened the focus of discussions at these tours to include key achievements in the areas of innovation, customer service, efficiency and performance.

Speaking about the 5th AIM, Al Shezawi added this edition provides real assessment of investment opportunities in many countries around the world, including emerging and developing markets.

He said that AIM is focused on the global economic landscape and its impact on FDI and growth prospects in emerging markets as well as the importance of attracting FDIs through stimulating investment legislation in these markets.
