The forum will also feature key note speeches from some of the region’s biggest business leaders, including Emaar chairman Mohammed Alabbar, Alshaya Group boss Mohammed Alshaya, Al Fajer Group CEO HH Sheikh Maktoum Al Hasher Al Maktoum, and former DIFC chairman Dr Habib Al Mulla.
The event will focus on the key economic issues of the day, and also include a specialist debate on “The State of the Nation.” A number of expert panelists are also set to appear, including Accenture Middle East managing director Omar Boulos, American Express Middle East CEO William Keliehor, Crescent Petroleum Executive Director Badr Jafar and Omnicom Media Group MENA CEO Elie Khouri.
The forum is to be hosted by the BBC broadcaster Andrew Neil, also chairman of ITP Group.

It promises to be a day of excellent speeches and fascinating debates.”
