Participants from 170 countries have begun arriving in Abu Dhabi for the Annual Investment Meeting (AIM Global 2023), which is the leading investment platform for global investors and will launch its 12th edition on May 8 and 10 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. Participants have begun arriving.

The three-day event is anticipated to attract a global audience consisting of top executives, decision makers, senior corporate leaders, government officials, and representatives from civil society. The purpose of this gathering is to identify unrealized business opportunities and promote cooperation on a basis that is beneficial to both parties involved.

The Annual Investment Meeting will be held in Abu Dhabi for the first time ever, with the theme "The Investment Paradigm Shift: Future Investment Opportunities To Foster Sustainable Economic Growth, Diversity, and Prosperity." This event will take place in the city that serves as the country's capital.

This event is co-hosted by the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development and the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology, both of which are providing assistance for it. The Annual Investment Meeting is well-known for its ability to convene thousands of investors from all over the world, and it is expected that this year's gathering will be no different in that regard.

The event will highlight five major pillars — startups, foreign direct investment, small and medium companies, future cities, and foreign portfolio investments — with the goal of boosting local and worldwide economic growth. The primary focus of the event will be on developing a road map for the global economy. Dawood Al Shezawi, Chairman of Annual Investment Meeting, made the following statement regarding the upcoming gathering: "The Annual Investment Meeting has established itself as a leading platform for investors and business leaders from around the world to come together and explore new opportunities for growth and development." As we prepare to welcome delegates to Abu Dhabi for the event that is being held this year, we are excited to share our vision for the future and investigate new cooperation opportunities that will contribute to the expansion of the global economy.

Workshops, displays, and opportunities to network will be some of the activities that will be featured at this year's event, which will feature many initiatives geared to support the five core pillars. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet with renowned professionals from the investment and technology industries to discuss novel approaches to fostering economic expansion and achieving sustainable development objectives.
