Quick Thinking

The latest issue of Invest digital magazine, available now, explores an innovative UAE government programme designed to tackle nationwide challenges through intelligent teamwork. It also reports on the huge success of the recent Dubai Investment Forum, and gives updates on Expo 2020 and the Dubai Industrial Strategy.
The UAE Government Accelerators initiative, which is the subject of our cover story, is demonstrating that remarkable things can happen in just 100 days - or even less. Announced in October last year and launched just a month later, the programme already has significant achievements to its credit thanks to the hard - and fast - work of teams formed to achieve goals laid out in the National Agenda of the UAE Vision 2021.
At Dubai Investments, meanwhile, MD and CEO Khalid bin Kalban is enthusiastic about growth prospects for his company, which owns or manages more than 40 businesses and has capital of more than $1.3bn. In a wide-ranging interview he discusses the evolution of Dubai’s economic landscape, and highlights emerging areas of opportunity in the emirate.
Elsewhere in the issue we give extensive coverage to the Dubai Investment Forum 2016, which attracted more than 600 attendees from around the world, and featured more than 30 high-level speakers. Invest readers can enjoy a string of exclusive videos from the event, including interviews with key speakers.
Invest, which was named News & Business Magazine of the Year at the prestigious Digital Magazine Awards, is available in four languages: English, Arabic, Mandarin and Russian. The digital magazine, which is published by Touchline on behalf of Dubai FDI, is available for download online and on the Apple App Store.
