DUBAI, 12th March, 2022 (WAM) — The Annual Investment Meeting (AIM 2022), which will be held from 29th-31st March 2022, has announced a series of pre-conference activities designed to bolster sustainable investments, including key workshops focused on attracting new investments, future cities and youth entrepreneurship.
Held at the Dubai Exhibition Centre, EXPO 2020 Dubai, AIM 2022 will be under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, with the theme, “Investments in sustainable innovation for a thriving future”.
According to the show’s organisers, AIM 2022 has rolled out an extensive two-day agenda from 26th-28th March, with the participation of some of the world’s leading finance specialists.
Activities include workshops carefully prepared by the World Association of Investment Promotion Agencies like “Attracting Quality Investments,” “Integrating Innovative Approaches in Investment Promotion,” “Customer Discovery: What’s the Problem and What Needs to be Validated,” “What are Future Cities? How can FDI be leveraged to deliver Future Cities’ solutions,” “Accelerating FDI in Uncertain Times,” “Inclusive Sustainable Finance,” and “Global Leaders Debate: Investments in Sustainable Innovation for a Thriving Future,” to name a few.
The organisers have revealed that businesses across the UAE today have expressed their bullishness on the further acquisition and adoption of newer technologies to help power their respective operations. Encouragingly, the country’s welcome attitude towards digital adoption has earmarked critical investments across various forms of tech–including information and telecommunications, blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), augmented and virtual reality, robotics, digital economy and software development, among others.
“The UAE is widely recognised for being a global model for tech adoption, which is attributed to the strong support and guidance from the country’s wise leadership–ensuring that the UAE economy continues to be competitive and prosperous. At AIM 2022, we want to go further and explore the potential of tech investments by bringing these opportunities to the forefront,” said Walid Farghal, Director-General of AIM Congress.
These tech-enabled industries, both in the region and from international markets, will have to prepare for an increased demand for their products and services.
Companies offering solutions in e-Commerce, q-commerce, education tech, health tech, fintech, proptech and entertainment are expected to thrive this year.
