Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, on Monday inaugurated the Annual Investment Meeting, AIM 2016, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The event was attended by representatives of official delegations from more than 140 countries, reaffirming the robustness of the UAE economy and its global position as a hotspot for investments across the investor spectrum.
Day one of AIM focused on the latest trends in foreign direct investment (FDI) and its growth prospects in emerging markets and the importance of attracting foreign investment driven by a mix of legislation and flexibility in emerging markets.
AIM 2016 presented a platform for decisions makers, officials, investors, entrepreneurs, experts, analysts and academics who gathered under one roof to discuss FDI challenges, potential and growth. Participants in AIM 2016 had the opportunity on day one to hold meetings, make contacts and share expertise with peers from all over the world. A variety of sessions were held on the first day.
In his welcome speech, Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri, Minister of Economy, said: “Global economic growth remains slow and quite uneven at international levels. According to latest estimates of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the world economy is anticipated to grow at 3.4% in 2016 with the pickup in global activity remaining gradual especially in emerging markets and developing economies. In advanced economies, we witness a modest and uneven recovery as well.”
