  • The emirate has attracted from 2015 to 2018 $21.6 billion worth of FDI in high-end technology transfers with the most from the European Union and the U.S. — $5.7 billion and $3.9 billion, respectively
  • Annual Investment Meeting (AIM 2019) to highlight strategies and mechanisms for enhancing tech solutions to draw FDIs
 
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 13 March 2019:Dubai ranked first globally in attracting foreign direct investments (FDIs) for artificial intelligence and robotics; while the UAE ranked sixth in the global Smart Service Index, surpassing the US, UK and South Korea. The Emirate has attracted from 2015 to 2018 $21.6 billion worth of FDI in high-end technology transfers, with the most from the European Union and the U.S. — $5.7 billion and $3.9 billion, respectively.
 
These figures were released in connection with Annual Investment Meeting (AIM 2019), which will be held from 8th to 10th April in Dubai. The organisers of AIM said that digitalisation is becoming an increasingly important part of globalisation, and the fact that Dubai ranks on the top position for artificial intelligence and robotics confirms that the city is fast emerging as the global destination for investment in smart technologies.
 
WhileAI adoption will account for 45 percent of the world economy's total gains by 2030, the UAE ranks first in the Arab world in terms of expected annual growth of AI contribution to the economy at 33.5 percent, followed by Saudi Arabia at 31.3 percent, the rest of the GCC region at 28.8 percent and Egypt at 25.5 percent.
 
“Digital growth is significant to the growth of the economy. In the UAE, it is in line with UAE Vision 2021, which aims to position the country as a top spot for tech investments,” said Dawood Al Shezawi, CEO of Annual Investment Organizing Committee.
 
Annual Investment Meeting is the world's leading platform for FDI, aimed at facilitating strategic networking and promoting investments. Power-packed with international investment community, this exalted gathering witnesses high-ranking policy makers, business leaders, regional and international investors, successful entrepreneurs, leading academics and celebrated financial experts showcasing up-to-date information and strategies on attracting FDI.
 
“Disruptive technologies like AI, blockchain, internet of things (IoT) boost the productive capacity of countries and also the global GDP. To maximize its benefits, countries need to integrate new avenues that will drive more investments in these solutions,” added Mr. Shezawi
 
At the upcoming Annual Investment Meeting (AIM), experts will highlight strategies and mechanisms for enhancing tech solutions to draw FDIs, in addition to highlighting internal and external incentives that encourage companies to adopt these solutions. The three-day exhibition will also offer opportunities for governments and private organizations to launch and promote their projects to a vastly diverse audience.
