During the opening session, H.E. Abdulla Bin Touq Al Marri, Minister of Economy and Chairman of Investopia, said: “The UAE now is in the business of doubling economic growth, incoming foreign direct investment, and investment outflows.”

“The 100% full foreign ownership led to a significant increase in the demand of international companies to work in the UAE, reaching 300,000 companies, which would generate a revenue of 2.2 trillion dirhams.” H.E. added.

H.E. Khaldoon Al Mubarak, Managing Director and Group CEO of Mubadala, said “Our focus on disruptive innovation in the UAE shapes our future economic base and creates solutions that benefit others.
