WAIPA also honoured Dubai FDI for its supportnd innovative investment promotion initiatives in the region.


"Over 90 IPAs came together at WIC 2014 to discuss ways of developing investment promotion strategies and attracting foreign direct investment (FDI). The conference provided a valuable opportunity to share information and knowledge on facilitating investment inflows and particularly on networking among Arab countries in this area," said Al Gergawi.

Taking Stock and Moving Forward was the theme around which discussions in the conference centered. In three interactive plenary sessions, panellists renowned for their expertise in investment explored Concerted Action in FDI Strategy and Policy, The Emerging and Established Sources of FDI and In-Country Reality and Outside Perception.
"The event brought together top decision-makers and experts from frontline and emerging markets worldwide. Participants were able to draw critical conclusions from the discussions held and we will try to implement the recommendations of the conference to accelerate investment into our respective regions," added Al Gergawi.
The three-day conference also decided to shift the headquarters of WAIPA to Istanbul from Geneva.
