    SALT Conference wraps up with resounding success in Abu Dhabi

    ADGM 11/12/2019
    SALT Abu Dhabi

    In cooperation with Abu Dhabi’s award-winning international financial centre, Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), SALT concluded its three days of activities at the inaugural conference with more than 50 sessions and 200+ globally renowned speakers hosted from December 9-11 at the Abu Dhabi Global Market Authorities Building and Emirates Palace. The forum brings together more than 1,000 leading global business professionals from around the world to discuss global collaboration opportunities at the intersection of finance, technology and geopolitics.

    This edition of SALT sought to address important economic themes including how Abu Dhabi and the UAE are playing a vital role in augmenting the county’s commitment to create robust and sustainable growth locally and globally. Many of the sessions and panels explored new ways to expand their reach to global standards and promote sustainability as they support the growth of the nation’s business centre, considering Abu Dhabi’s strategic location of being a vital East-West gateway. The prestigious event brought together hundreds of experienced entrepreneurs, researchers, business leaders and policymakers from around the world, where they engaged in a broad mix of thought leadership across business, investment, energy and public policy.

    Many of the sessions and panels discussed during the conference covered topics such as venture capital opportunities, the Middle East entrepreneurship boom, artificial intelligence (AI), bilateral relations and policies, how family offices are driving innovation, alternative investments in sovereign wealth management and other major investment advantages and opportunities in Abu Dhabi and the UAE.

    Another well-received highlight included a panel discussion with guest panellists: H.E. Omar Al Olama, Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence, Jamil Asfour, Executive Director of Technology Partnerships, Abu Dhabi Investment Office; Seth Weingram, Senior Vice President of Acadian; and Peng Xiao, Member, Board of Trustees of MBZUAI. The panellists discussed various initiatives, country strategies and policy changes being made to promote and benefit SMEs and start-ups in UAE and the wider region, as well as the various obstacles entrepreneurs have faced amidst today’s economic landscape. Initiatives and policy changes are being put in place to not only position Abu Dhabi as a business-friendly ecosystem but also to empower Emirati partnerships abroad. SALT Abu Dhabi also saw further discussions on “Healthcare Innovations”, delivered by H.E. Dr. Hawaa Al Thahak Al Mansoori from the United Arab Emirates Federal National Council.

    Notable speakers included: H.E. Ahmed Ali Al Sayegh, UAE Minister of State and Chairman of ADGM; H.E. Omar Al Olama, UAE Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence; Waleed Al Mukarrab Al Muhairi , Group Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Mubadala Investment Company; David Rubenstein, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Chairman of Carlyle Group; General John Kelly, USMC (Ret.), former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; Dr. Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations; and former Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, among others.

    Over its 10-year history, SALT has grown from a conference focused on alternative investments to a comprehensive global thought leadership forum bringing together thousands of global pioneers across industries, ideologies and cultures. This prestigious conference is a result of ADGM’s efforts to position Abu Dhabi as a global investment and business hub, attracting various businesses and entrepreneurs from all corners of the world. ADGM is committed to fostering a world-class business ecosystem that provides unrivaled opportunities to its registered companies across all sectors.
