The Fortune Global Forum is set to commence tomorrow in Abu Dhabi, gathering CEOs, global leaders, policymakers, and investors to deliberate on pressing global economic challenges and formulate future business strategies. Scheduled from November 27th to 29th, 2023, the event will host a distinguished lineup of speakers, including Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, UAE Minister of State for Foreign Trade, and Omar Sultan Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Digital Economy, and Remote Work Applications.
Among the participants are prominent figures such as Natarajan Chandrasekaran, Chairman of Tata Sons; Ray Dalio, Founder and CIO Mentor at Bridgewater Associates; Jenny Johnson, President and CEO of Franklin Templeton; and Raj Subramaniam, CEO of FedEx. The agenda includes discussions on major global economic challenges and the future of business in the rapidly evolving global landscape.
Rashed Abdulkarim Al Blooshi, Undersecretary of ADDED, expressed enthusiasm about hosting the Fortune Global Forum in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region for the first time. He emphasized the event’s role in fostering cooperation among key stakeholders and contributing to international business development.
Themed “New Era of Business,” the Fortune Global Forum 2023, organized by the Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED), will address pivotal topics such as market dynamics, geopolitical trends, emerging technologies, talent shortages, climate risks, and consumer trends. Abu Dhabi’s status as a growing business and cultural hub, coupled with its strategic timing just before the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) hosted by the UAE, positions it as an ideal location for the forum. The event aims to provide a platform for business leaders to discuss their global footprints in anticipation of COP28.
