“We’re delighted to be bringing the World Forum and the FDI Association to Sharjah for the 2015 Forum,” said Cathy Dawson, President of Red Hot Locations, “The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority is partnering with us to develop a robust program and to create a networking environment that will facilitate the exchange of cross-border business and ideas.”
The World Forum invites economic development agencies to meet and network with corporate investors over the course of three days and to share best practices with colleagues from investment and development agencies from all over the world.
