AIM 2019 Achievements

Mapping the Future of FDI: Enriching World Economies through Digital Globalization

AIM 2019 was joined by corporate leaders, policy makers, global investment experts, FDI dealmakers, sovereign wealth funds, economic institutions, investment promotion agencies and site selectors from around the globe for an investment facilitation event. The three-day event offered participants the most coveted opportunity to network with high-level government officials, institutional investors, city and municipal representatives to initiate and secure investments agreements.

Global participants gained an edge with knowledge shared during the Conference, Global Leaders Debate, and Capacity Building Workshops; advanced their business and investment agenda at the Investors’ Hub; showcased their projects at the Exhibtion; widened their network through AIM’s networking features; and discovered startups with promising potential at Startup Innovation Showcase and Pitch Competition and smart solution providers during Future Cities Exhibition.

AIM 2019 also hosted the first One Belt, One Road Business Cooperation and Development Forum, a by-invitation only forum which has attracted 400 investors and project owners from GCC and China.
