Ukraine to have huge participation in AIM Dubai

DUBAI, January 24, 2017

The Annual Investment Meeting (AIM), to be held in Dubai, UAE, in April, expects a huge participation of Ukraine, one of the official supporting partners of the event.

Dawood Al Shezawi, head of the organising committee, announced this. The 7th edition of the AIM will be held from April 2 to 4 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

“We have signed a partnership agreement with UBA (Ukrainian Business Association) represented by its President Chepovy Volodymyr in the Ukraine-UAE Networking Forum held last month. Representatives of the private sector, government and NGOs were invited in the UAE to connect with their counterparts to discuss investment possibilities in both markets. We took this opportunity to strengthen ties with UBA and as you can see, the results are promising. Ukraine will take part in AIM as an exhibitor and many Ukrainian companies have confirmed their presence at the event; there will also be a Country Presentation and we hope that AIM 2017 will enable more deals and opportunities for collaboration between Ukraine and UAE, as well as other countries,” said Al Shezawi.

The Ukraine-UAE Networking Forum offered a matchmaking platform and was organised by the UBA in cooperation with the Annual Investment Meeting, Ministry of Economy of the UAE, Organising Committee of Expo 2020 Dubai and other partners.

“The Forum was a great opportunity to find out about the investment potential in the UAE and for our businessmen, operators in several industries, from the private and public sector to exchange information about our country, to get in touch with new partners and contacts, and to cooperate,” commented Daniel Bilak, director of Ukraine Investment Promotion Office and Chief Investment Adviser to the Prime Minister of Ukraine.

“Our delegation met with HE Juma Mohammed Al Kait, Assistant Undersecretary for Foreign Trade at UAE Ministry of Economy. We have been also agreeably surprised by the UAE preparations to host the Expo 2020. So we believe that our participation in the AIM 2017 will reinforce these relations that have been established during the previous event in a more concrete way as our companies will be exhibiting their products and services in various sectors including agriculture and agribusiness, construction, pharmaceutical and energy,” added Bilak.

"We are very pleased that the reputable Ukrainian companies will participate in the Annual Investment Meeting for the first time.  The participation of the Ukrainian Business Association members in such a prestigious event is a great honour and a big responsibility. Our participation will boast top Ukrainian companies from the agro-industrial sector, innovation, production, as well as companies operating in the renewable energy sector," added Oleksii Chuiev, executive director of the Ukrainian Business Association. – TradeArabia News Service
