Countdown of world's 500 most powerful Arabs to be published next week
Dubai Police Chief Dahi Khalfan is to officially unveil this year’s Arabian Business Power 500 at a special party being held at 7pm on Monday June 11 at The Pavilion, Downtown Dubai.
Khalfan will head up a star-studded list of some of the world’s most influential Arabs, many of which are expected to attend the event. Arabian Business will also be handing out four special awards on the night to recognise the 'World’s Most Inspiring Arabs'.
The full list of the Power 500 is being published in a special issue of Arabian Business on Sunday 10 June, and will also released online at www.arabianbusiness.com at 9am.
The list is believed to include a record 127 new entries, and more women than ever, with 105 on the 2012 list. The Power 2012 500 has been put together from an initial shortlist of 1782 names.
Arabian Business Editor Ed Attwood said: “The annual Arabian Business Power List has become the most comprehensive guide to Arab success and influence all over the globe. This year’s list features Arabs living in 37 different countries, and working in every sector from business and media, to sports, science and entertainment. Chief Inspector Dahi Khalfan is great symbol of Arab success all around the world, and so it a huge honour for us that he will officially unveil this year’s list.”
