Investopia launches its global talks starting from India
In September of 2021, the UAE government launched Investopia. There were two panel discussions held in Mumbai and New Delhi to kick-start a global dialogue in world markets, starting with India. The discussion covered the rapid changes in the investment world as a result of technological advances, ways to channel investments in emerging markets, and the growth opportunities in India.
The mission of Investopia is to channel investments into emerging markets and new economies in a region of 3.5 billion people. It was Investopia’s first international event outside UAE, as it has been held in India, one of Investopia’s countries of interest, coinciding with the beginning of the implementation of the comprehensive economic partnership agreement (CEPA) where Investopia aims to play a crucial role in mobilizing investments between the UAE and India.
Senior officials, policy makers, and prominent businessmen and investors from UAE and India attended both sessions, including Abdullah bin Touq Al Marri, Minister of Economy; Dr. Ahmad Belhoul Al Falasi, Minister of State for Entrepreneurship and SMEs; Dr. Ahmed Abdulrahman Abdulrahman AlBanna, Ambassador of the UAE in India from the Emirati side, and the attendance of Sunjay Sudhir, Ambassador of India to UAE, and Rajan Navani, Chairman, CII’s India@75 Council, Vice Chairman & Managing Director, Jetline Industries. The sessions were moderated by Anjani Kumar, Partner at Deloitte Investopia’s knowledge partner.
In its first edition, Investopia focused on investments in the world of the metaverse, digital currency, in addition to 12 vital sectors of the new economy in order to contribute to the prosperity of future generations. As part of the UAE government’s Projects of the 50, Investopia is one of the major strategic initiatives.
