The third edition of AIM, organised by the UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Trade and held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohamed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum UAE Vice president, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai will provide a comprehensive and genuine assessment of investment opportunities in frontier, emerging and transition economies with a special focus on some high growth regions such as Africa and Asia as well as the Middle East and North Africa; and in particular the United Arab Emirates, which has become a regional economic powerhouse.
With the theme “A Future International Economic Landscape in the making, implications on FDI Growth in Frontier and Emerging Countries”, AIM Congress 2013 hopes to facilitate discussions and direct action plans that will further boost trade activities in and among developing economies through unrivalled conference and country presentations as well as panel discussions; in addition to B2B meetings and a plethora of other networking opportunities.
The keynote address will be delivered by Karl Sauvant, Resident Senior Fellow, Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment, and former Director of the UNCTAD Investment Division.
“The conference will provide, not only an in-depth analysis of global trade and investment trends and major policy developments therein, but it will also feature a series of sessions focusing on policy responses to reignite growth, foreign investment policies, strategies and objectives of sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) and fiscal policies and investment incentives in a fiercely competitive world,” said HE Sheikha Lubna Bint Khalid Al Qasimi, Minister of Foreign Trade, UAE. “While the world continues to grapple with one of the most severe economic crisis, with high unemployment rates, mounting sovereign debt and limited economic growth in mature markets, emerging and frontier markets continue to grow and are leading the FDI recovery.”
