I think that IEDEA addresses extremely important themes by discussing what’s happening, the cutting-edge issues that really matter to the future of this region and the future of the business in this region.
IEDEA can take the lead in providing a platform for Asian and African economies to share the knowledge and the blueprint that UAE possesses on the development of infrastructure.
IEDEA has developed an excellent platform to come together and interact with people who will be leading the economic powerhouse of the future.
I must congratulate IEDEA for organising the ABLF, a very sleekly-produced Forum. The platform has brought together a group of world leaders who are doing and saying the right things on key issues which will power the future of the Asian economy.
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.
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.
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.
IEDEA has outdone itself and brought together the very best people to advance the ABLF's 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 carries out extremely important work by celebrating dialogue and cooperation to deliver growth for the region. I am pleased to support these efforts.
I remember it was in 2007, when the idea of the ABLF was conceived with the thought of creating engagement between various dignitaries from Asia. Kudos to Malini Menon and the IEDEA team for these successful 12 years, who has done great work in enabling, spearheading and putting the ABLF event together, with me as one of the ABLF Governors.
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 which covers a spectrum of various areas and ideas.
We are all indebted to Malini Menon and her colleagues at IEDEA for 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.
