We are all indebted to Malini Menon and her colleagues at IEDEA for again shaping an efficient, effective, and elegant opportunity to think seriously together and to honour outstanding achievements. I am especially grateful for her vision that broadens the scope of this event and includes both men and women leaders from a wide variety of private and public enterprises that touch so many countries in and contingent to Asia.
I remember it was in 2007, when the idea of the ABLF was conceived with the thought of creating engagement between various people from Asia. 10 years down the road, when I look back, having been associated with the ABLF, I see how much has changed with all the narratives. Kudos to Malini Menon and the IEDEA team for these successful 10 years, who has done great work in enabling, spearheading, and putting the ABLF event together, with me as one of the ABLF Governors.
I really acknowledge the impact of what IEDEA is doing by hosting global gatherings like the ABLF in the UAE, in order to recognise not only business leaders but also to emphasise on social values and development.
IEDEA’s flagship event, the ABLF, is a global leadership platform in the UAE where we can exchange ideas and benefit from the knowledge of other countries, by learning about new technologies and successful innovations that they have adopted.
I am extremely impressed with IEDEA. They have created an excellent platform for promoting international cooperation among Middle East countries, and connecting closely, other Asian nations, including India and Japan.
IEDEA has created a very powerful platform with the ABLF given the fact that most of the Asian nations are represented here. You get to meet a lot of business leaders, entrepreneurs, people of different backgrounds who have really been successful in their ventures. Being in a place like Dubai, it is very accessible, welcoming and an overall wonderful experience.
We are happy to be associated with IEDEA and I congratulate the team for all their efforts in developing the ABLF, a very well attended event where important subjects are discussed and cover a spectrum of various different areas and ideas.
The ABLF (IEDEA’s flagship event) is definitely a great knowledge and networking platform that serves to bring together, in the UAE, stakeholders from all over the world. I see gatherings like the ABLF as steps that power us forward to 2020.
IEDEA has conceived a great forum to meet and network with interesting and innovative leaders who are engaged in making a difference across sectors and based in different parts of Asia. The ABLF is a remarkable platform as it is one of the only places that takes a pan-Asian view, including the Middle East.
IEDEA brings together Asia’s leaders to exchange knowledge and collaborate, with the intent of developing intra-Asia partnerships that support the overall economic and social development. It is an excellent event developed over 10 years.
The relationship between the nations of Asia is significant and historical and at the ABLF (IEDEA’s flagship event) we all get-together and see the different nationalities come together to celebrate their achievements in Dubai and this makes us proud.
My experience as Vice Chairman and Managing Director of the largest bank in the UAE has taught me that the pursuit of excellence is a continuous commitment and requires focused team effort. The ABLF (IEDEA’s flagship event) provides me and my team further impetus to continue to raise the standard of excellence in all that we do.
IEDEA has a prominent history in the UAE, and we do our best to support its well-planned initiatives, such as the ABLF Series, that are showcased here. IEDEA’s work is nothing short of exemplary and I look forward to working closely with them in the years to come.
I must congratulate the IEDEA team for organising a very sleekly-produced ABLForum. The forum has brought together a group of world leaders who are doing and saying the right things on some key issues which will power the future of the Asian economy.
IEDEA has created an outstanding event that celebrates leadership and inspires Asia to come together and work towards regional co-operation. True leadership means hard work, innovation and respect for one another.
This year, IEDEA has outdone itself and brought together the very best people to advance the ABLF Series' agenda. As a host to outstanding events such as this, the UAE is a productive, exciting, peaceful and prosperous country that welcomes a wide variety of people, cultures and ethnic groups.
IEDEA has created an excellent platform. I am glad about the diversity of subjects being discussed at the ABLF Series, which provides young people with insights into the businesses around them and how they tackle some of their biggest issues. I enjoyed speaking at this year’s IEDEA events.
Asia is an emerging economic force, but the potential of its vast human capital is yet to be realised fully. Asia’s leadership needs to explore ways to optimise available opportunities for economic empowerment. That is what forums, such as the ABLF Series, strive to achieve.
IEDEA has created a great event and I am pleased to be part of it. It is very impressive to see leading businessmen from Africa, Asia and the Indian Subcontinent here in Dubai to discuss important issues that are facing the wider region and how Dubai can play a role in leading the region in the future.
Let us together dream of a strong, developed and inclusive India that actively engages with the global community to strengthen the cause of world peace and development.

World Leaders praise IEDEA’s work portfolio
I support the Asian Business Leadership Forum Awards’ effort and initiative to celebrate the achievements of Asia in a common forum and its mandate of strong leadership commitments to excellence, sustainability and development.
The ABLF Series is an important platform for showcasing and celebrating Asian business excellence and promoting intra-Asia business partnerships. It focuses on Industry, Infrastructure and Energy sectors, which are of critical importance to the economic growth of Asian countries. I commend the ABLF initiative.
I fully support the premise of the ABLF: the growth of Asian economies has global ramifications and holds great potential. The work of IEDEA to promote regional and international dialogue between great Asian leaders will strengthen Asian economic success.
I think it is important for us to explore new opportunities that will boost intraeconomic activities within the Asian community. IEDEA provides the ABLF as a platform for such dialogue and can become the Davos [World Economic Forum] of Asia.
But I think the real testament to their success will come when we no longer slot women in a separate category in awards or power lists, when women compete with men on the same footing, under the same conditions.
I’m very proud of IEDEA for creating an Asia-wide initiative that brings the region’s best and most promising leaders and organisations together to collectively celebrate and further our economic progress – I strongly commend and support this significant endeavour.
It is a great pleasure to be at this forum conceptualised by IEDEA where leaders can interface and exchange information about the innumerable business opportunities in Asia which will further economic prosperity in the region.
IEDEA brings together leaders of Asia to engage, inform and partner with each other. With Asia emerging as the engine of global economic growth, it is time for Asian leaders to integrate and participate in the conversation more than ever before.
This is the first time when South Asia, West Asia and Southeast Asia have come together to recognise the importance of the infrastructure industry, and being committed to investing in the potential of this sector in Asia, we fully endorse this IEDEA initiative.
