WHY ABU DHABI?
ABU DHABI is at the heart of the oil and gas industry and ADIPEC has played a significant role in positioning Abu Dhabi as a key destination for this sector. With UAE holding the world’s sixth largest oil reserves, the country remains one of the world's most reliable producers and exporters of crude oil.
Recent decades have seen the GCC become increasingly connected to the wider global economy through trade and investment links. Over the years capital flows between the Gulf and the rest of the world have deepened significantly, a process first driven by trade and investment with the historically important blocs of Europe and North America, and more recently by strengthening ties with emerging market economies such as India, China and Brazil.
ENCOURAGING BI-LATERAL TRADE
ADIPEC remains an unrivalled opportunity to create strong bilateral trade links and deep, long-lasting business relationships. Each year, the event attracts an increasing number of key global players, and with high investment levels remaining across Saudi Arabia and the UAE; the opening up of Iran, and exciting developments in North Africa, the need to deepen relationships throughout the region has never been stronger.
