The UAE is playing an increasingly important role in the global economy, both as a provider of capital and as a highly attractive destination for investment. New opportunities for investors and financial intermediaries are being created through the UAE's strategy to diversify its economy and implement progressive reforms. The Forum will provide a setting for Abu Dhabi to showcase investment opportunities in finance, real estate, tourism, infrastructure and industry.

The event will bring together international, regional and domestic investors with industry leaders, financial intermediaries and high-profile government officials. Interactive panel discussions, workshops, keynote speeches and networking sessions will enable attendees to gain a unique insight into the outlook for UAE's economy. Participants will also hear how they can make the most of investment opportunities in the region and global capital markets.
