Welcome to the 9th Annual Abu Dhabi Energy, Industry & Infrastructure Conference
Abu Dhabi, one of the world’s most buoyant economies, rated AA (Source: Fitch) and the capital of the UAE, is entering a new era in which diversification and balance has moved to the top of the government’s agenda. The Vision 2030 has outlined diversification for many years; however, this year, Abu Dhabi will see a real push and execution towards privatization, alternative energy development, industry and continued infrastructure development.
The prestigious 9th Annual Abu Dhabi Conference, in 2014 will focus on 3 pillars Energy, Industry & Infrastructure with emphasis on the future plans, progresses and visions of the Emirate across general urban development, energy, industrial and infrastructure sectors. The Conference is designed to provide factual information on the Emirate’s US$ 337bn projects market in key sectors of development. Read more about the conference.
