ABU DHABI, 26th September, 2022 (WAM) — Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development has supported – for the first time in its history – the participation of three international entrepreneurs to participate at the Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition (ADIHEX).
The international participants include multiple businesses that have been established in the Chechen Republic and are actively supported by the Zayed Foundation and Khalifa Fund’s partner in the region. Khalifa Fund will also be supporting the participation of several UAE-based businesses that represent UAE national heritage through various sectors, including hunting and equestrianism.
The support of the three Chechen businesses comes as part of Khalifa Fund’s long-term international outreach efforts, where Zayed Fund was established and set up by Khalifa Fund in 2017 in Grozny, the Chechen capital, with a capital of $50 million, to empower women and youth by developing their entrepreneurial skillset, and boost the growth of the local economy.
Alia Al Mazrouei. CEO of Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development, said, “ADIHEX is amongst the most prestigious and imperative exhibitions in the region, which uniquely shines a light on our heritage, culture and traditions. For the first time in Khalifa Fund’s history, we’re delighted to support three international businesses alongside our six UAE-based businesses.
“Our international counterparts, who are funded by the Zayed Foundation, share our values within the hunting and equestrian sector and also have a deep-rooted history in manufacturing goods and offering services in this specific sector.”
ADIHX, which is renowned for being the largest exhibition for hunting, equestrian and heritage preservation in the Middle East and Africa, is organised by the Emirates Falconers’ Club and attracts local and global attendees to develop its plans and projects to be in line with its leading environmental and heritage goals in promoting sustainable hunting.
