It's an ultimate honor to be on the stage amongst you all, leading investors, government officials, social entrepreneurs, talents from across the globe. Welcome dear friends.. In between the wise words of his highness, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan founding father of the UAE, there is a quote that mirrors the world essence.

Future generations will be living in a world that is very different from what we are accustomed. It is essential that we have prepared ourselves and our children for that new world. With pride and honor. We echo the same sentiment today. Thank you all for being part of our Investopia sessions.

Thank you for coming together to mark a new beginning. The partners, we are just recovering from the pandemic. We are witnessing an era of economic change. I take a quote from his highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He said from crisis emerge people that demand to succeed. This is exactly what we're here today. As the investment world is in the hunt for returns, as a multiple new growth hubs are emerging across different sectors and geographies, we are here to succeed simply because the future lies in the global investment community. To work together as one. Investopia is a global initiative that will launch and sponsor activities in different geographies. To take its message forward and promote investments in the future sectors. In emerging markets, Investopia will present at all key international gatherings because Investopia was born to be a global dialogue.

Today's summit is the beginning of the defining future, and the future lies in the areas that will certainly shape the economies of tomorrow. The shifting global geoeconomic landscape where here to explore how global growth hubs are shift. How globalization is changing and what it means for cross-border investments.

We're shedding the light to opportunities that have emerged from the pandemic in emerging markets, the search for sustainable alpha. We're here to look at an environmental, social, governance opportunities, but also to tap into on underserved groups and impact investing the future technologies in vital sectors.

Were here to explore applications of AI, quantum, the Metaverse, FinTech, digital assets and currencies. We're here to discuss investments in food system from agriculture to agritech, the shifts from healthcare to health tech. The global demographic shifts on the way hold the potential to both rapidly expand the opportunities for investments and returns from the inclusion of underserved groups across increasingly young and female purchasing power in emerging markets to more and woman founders, and investors, how can investors capitalize on all these trends? The future, 3.5 billion dialogues we're gonna have today is gonna engage with participants with inclusive insights into latest markets developments, economic reforms and investments, opportunities in various markets and regions. From Eurasia to Asia to the Middle East, Africa, Latin America.

Dear Investopia participants, We're here to discuss investment opportunities, incentives, and facilities in various countries of the world to allow the governments to present their development projects, opportunities, facilities to investors, and the legislative environment which regulates investments in the market.

We are also here to support the national economic priorities and investments attraction program with an ambitious goal to strengthen the flow of inward investments and attract 550 billion worth of FDI into the UAE over the next nine years.
