H.E. Dr Omar Bin Sulaiman outlines roadmap for DIFC’s future development
H.E. Dr. Omar Bin Sulaiman, Governor of the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), shared his thoughts and perspectives about the development of Dubai and the DIFC when he addressed members of the British business community and their guests at a British Business Group (BBG) lunch yesterday.
Dr. Bin Sulaiman spoke to guests about the incredible growth of the DIFC and the roadmap for its future development. The world’s fastest-growing financial centre, DIFC is home to more than 600 companies, including many of the world’s leading financial institutions.
“It was an honour to meet and hear from Dr. Bin Sulaiman today,” said Mark Beer, Chairman and CEO of the BBG. “He has built DIFC into the world’s leading financial centre and his determination, drive and ambition was truly awe-inspiring.
“We heard about how he believes the development of Dubai will continue to go from strength to strength and learned more about his role in achieving the Emirate’s ambitious plans. To hear a first hand account from one of the leading industry figures in Dubai is incredibly motivating for our members.”
The event, which took place at the DIFC Conference Centre, attracted an audience of more than 200 business men and women, including British Consul General John Hawkins, who was attending his last BBG lunch before he leaves Dubai for Qatar.
Dr. Bin Sulaiman is the latest in a long line of distinguished speakers for the BBG, the region’s largest and most active business group. HRH Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, visited Dubai and addressed members in a networking evening in April, which followed presentations by Sir John Parker, Vice Chairman of DP World, and Sheikha Lubna, Minister for Foreign Affairs.
