H.E. Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri, UAE Ministry of Economy, announces Global Trade Development Week 2014, the largest international trade event for business and government leaders

Dubai, July 3, 2014 /Xinwengao.com/ - Global Trade Development Week EMEA will be an unprecedented gathering of influential business and government leaders, entrepreneurs and academics from over 70 countries. The event, which is the world’s largest trade facilitation, development, investment & customs programme, will be held in Emirates Towers, Dubai from 27th till 29th October 2014.

“It is time to set a new course for the global economy”, says the UAE Minister for Economy H.E. Al Mansouri, the official Patron of Global Trade Development Week. Explaining why the UAE is supporting this event, he adds, “the UAE looks forward to hosting a full programme of events that tackle today’s most challenging trade and development issues. The UAE is honored with the presence of such high-level individuals who are experts in their fields”.

Speaking on the importance of the Dubai location of the event, H.E. Al Mansouri points out, “Global Trade and Development Week comes at a special time to Dubai, where the nation is rapidly developing across all sectors, as to prepare for the hosting of EXPO 2020.”
Global Trade Development Week EMEA brings together over 600 high-level delegates from the areas of trade, development, economic zones, trade finance, industrial development, real estate, global customs and trade facilitation; with representatives from across Africa, Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East.

Andrew Keable, Managing Partner and Founder of the KW Group, the organisers of the event, says “Dynamic trade development plays a critical role for economic growth and accordingly each nation sets ambitious goals, yet there is limited opportunity for trade leaders to meet and collaborate outside their various sectors. Global Trade Development Week addresses this challenge providing an essential platform to link business and government leaders from across key sectors to exchange ideas, experiences and to seek solutions to drive forward global trade.”

Global Trade Development week will feature over 120 speakers, panelists and workshop leaders. The event will open with a Ministers and Trade Leaders VIP plenary, followed by four concurrent summits that cover ‘Global Free Trade and Special Economic Zones’, ‘Trade Finance and Industrial Development’, ‘Corporate Real Estate Leaders’ and ‘Global Customs and Trade Facilitation’. The trade exhibition runs along side the summits includes leading governments, banking, commerce, economic zones, ports, customs, technologies suppliers & consultancies.
