(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The 16th edition of the Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (Wetex), registered a 9.33 per cent increase in the number of exhibiting companies and a nearly 20 per cent increase in the number of participating counties to date.

It is estimated that Wetex 2014 has so far attracted more than 1,500 exhibitors from 40 countries, compared to the 1,360 companies from 32 countries that arrived for the 2013 edition. Wetex 2014 will discuss, through a series of seminars, topics relevant to the fields of electricity, water, solar energy, nuclear energy, water and natural resource conservation, sustainable development, and energy efficiency.

Themed 'At the forefront of sustainability,' the exhibition will be held under the directives of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and under the patronage of Shaikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, Minister of Finance of the UAE and President of the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, or Dewa, between April 14-16, 2014, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and chief executive officer of Dewa, said: "Wetex has established outreach in many countries around the world, and due to the growing international interest from energy, water, oil and gas and the environment sectors, the exhibition is attracting an increasing number of companies and international organisations engaged in these vital sectors more than previous editions."

"The UAE is playing a leading role globally in establishing new principles in accelerating the pace towards green economy and environment sustainability.

"Moreover, Wetex 2014 is an ideal venue to discuss roadmaps to reach a sustainable and achieve green economy," Al Tayer noted.

The exhibition will coincide with the World Green Economy Summit, which will be held in the UAE in collaboration with the Dubai Green Economy Partnership under the theme 'Global Partnerships, Sustainable Future,' where Dewa supervises its organisation under the umbrella of the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy.
