Dubai, UAE: DP World has announced that the Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) has named it as Strategic Sponsor of its sixth edition, to be held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from April 11 to 13, under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

AIM 2016, said the announcement, helps spotlight leading global practices and experiences in all investment sectors, through the participation of public and private organisations, and high-profile decision-makers from around the world.

DP World highlighted that AIM plays a pivotal part in promoting the role of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and its importance in ensuring sustainable economic growth in the region and the world, and added that DP World underscored its international status at the event, with its network of more than 77 terminals supported by over 50 related businesses in 40 countries spanning six continents.

“We are delighted to sponsor a global investment event, such as the Annual Investment Meeting,” said H.E. Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World. “It serves as an ideal platform to review projects, access latest investment trends, and to meet with professionals from a wide variety of economic sectors from around the world. FDI is an instrumental factor in supporting the UAE government in its preparation for diversification of the economy beyond oil, and our participation in the event reinforces its vision and directives to establish trade and investment partnerships between public and private sectors, in addition to promoting investment and enhancing economic cooperation. We commend the efforts of the UAE Ministry of Economy in organising the AIM, and its success in promoting investment in emerging markets.”

Bin Sulayem also revealed that during DP World’s participation at AIM 2016, it will discuss marine and inland terminal and logistics developments in different parts of the world.

Dawood Al Shezawi, CEO of the AIM Organising Committee, added, “We applaud the sponsorship of DP World, and we are confident this move will contribute to attracting more visitors and international delegates over three days.
