Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), the financial and business hub connecting the region’s emerging markets with the markets of Europe, Asia and the Americas, announces the launch of DIFC Forum. The Forum, held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and President of DIFC, and in association with Deutsche Bank and Emirates Airlines as the official airline, will take place at the Ritz-Carlton (DIFC) on November 21.
The theme, ‘The Shifting Centre of Gravity’, will examine opportunities and challenges in growth markets in the context of the shift of global financial dynamics to emerging economies. It will also focus on the pivotal role of Dubai in facilitating the emerging trade flows and supporting regional expansion.
Jeffrey Singer, Chief Executive Officer, DIFC Authority says, “The shifting centre of gravity has various implications for businesses in the region and around the world.” He adds, “The surge of a new wealthy middle class in many Middle Eastern and Asian countries, and the rise of the Renminbi as a global currency are two of many other implications and opportunities in terms of trade and investment flows.”
