Abu Dhabi will host the German Industry Day (GID) on April 29, with the participation of regional and UAE investors. The event, which will be held at the Jumeirah Etihad Towers Hotel, is a perfect platform to bridge the gap between Germany and the booming economies of the GCC, the UAE in particular, according to organizers.
“During the last 12 months, Kizad has witnessed high investor and industrial activity in the zone. The food, aluminum and logistics clusters have taken the lion’s share, in terms of investments. Kizad is an excellent option for European businesses looking to expand into a stable and prosperous area of the Middle East region,” said Khaled Salmeen, CEO of Kizad.
Delegates will have the exclusive opportunity to discuss the latest industrial and market trends, experience state-of-the-art technologies and learn about the drivers that shape Europe’s leading economy. They will also be exposed to the latest industrial and investment opportunities that Abu Dhabi has to offer and explore why many of Europe’s advanced and modern industrial companies are keen on making the move to Abu Dhabi.
The event will feature keynote speeches by opinion leaders such as Mohammed Omar Abdullah, undersecretary of the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development, Joschka Fischer, former vice chancellor and foreign minister of the Federal Republic of Germany, and Khaled Salmeen, CEO of Kizad.
The GID 2014 includes a pre-event gathering to introduce German delegates to FCF Fox Corporate Finance GmbH (FCF)’s local network of partners and friends and a conference day featuring company presentations and speeches, Q&A sessions, one-on-one meetings and high-level networking opportunities.
The event is an effective forum for exploring investment opportunities and broadening the network of top industry executives.
The forum also includes two top level panel discussions with leading industrialists and economists, providing valuable insights into the global macro-economic environment and its relation and effect on industrial production and trade.
Arno Fuchs, CEO of FCF Fox Corporate Finance, the organizer of GID 2014, said: “As an investment bank looking to support business and industrial growth, we are acutely aware of the necessary infrastructure that is often crucial to a company’s success. Since last year, Kizad has made huge strides to attract some big names including Brasil Foods, NFPC and Morgan Advanced Technology, so this is clearly an entity with an offering that will appeal to many German industrial sectors complementing our investment strategies.”
