Global Citizen Forum to be held in Dubai
Dubai, August 26, 2013
A meeting to discuss the opportunities and responsibilities of being a global citizen is set to be held in Dubai next month.
The Global Citizen Forum, which is a platform for exchange between all relevant global citizen stakeholders in an effort to build awareness, educate and promote the concept as a way of life, will take place at the Armani Hotel, Burj Khalifa on September 12.
The participants will include speakers from government agencies, financial, legal and industry professionals.
The forum will serve as a platform to examine the trend of the increasing number of second residency and citizenships being sought by high net worth individuals and their families from the region and the benefits that come with it, besides the new immigrant investor programmes being offered by many countries.
Armand Arton, CEO and president of Arton Capital and founder of the forum, said: “This is the ideal time to raise awareness and explain the importance of Global Citizenship to a broad audience. As of today over 20 countries are engaged in attracting Global Citizens and their investment and it is crucial to have a transparent and informed conversion about this industry as it is estimated that the number of participating countries will double in the coming years. “
Other issues discussed on the panel will cover dual citizenship and global taxation strategies, diligence challenges and global mobility (travel the world visa-free).
The forum will also showcase a debate, encourage participants to engage with distinguished speakers and panelists and seek out answers on various current topics. - TradeArabia News Service
