Delegates remained completely excited with the opportunities and we engaged in a couple of projects to invest in. We made new links with more than 7 Governments and how we can invest further in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.”
His Excellency Tomasz Zaleski, Chairman of the Royal Office of the United Arab Emirates, said,
“I am privileged and honoured to be part of this Africa UAE summit which brought together two countries with similar mind sets to impact the global economy.
The participation by more than 7 governments represented by their top officials of the African union itself proves how Africa is keen to collaborate.
This is Africa! As long as you read books about her, everything seems relatively simple. If you spend any time here, you know that you are just starting to learn it. Our common plans can teach us a lot. Investments will give everyone a chance to develop.
I am also happy to have awarded the excellence and leadership prowess 2021 award to Mr Carlos Santos, President and CEO of Ethos Asset Management Inc., USA which he well deserves for his commitment and support to the Business community.
I, as the Chairman of the Royal office, stand committed to implement the vision of our leadership, Al Maktoum, ruling family of Dubai and HH sheikh Ahmed Bin Faisal Al Qassimi.
The team at the Royal office of HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Faisal Al Qassimi would like to thank Leaders Without Borders for their excellent efforts in organising such a great event.”
Salwa Abdulaziz Zein, Chief Executive Officer of The Royal Office of H.H. Sheikh Ahmed Bin Al Qassimi Group of Companies, said,
“This week has been a whirlwind of activities especially with the Leaders Without Borders summit and Dubai Expo. Amazing but intense. We feel blessed to be here with all our Royal Office team, dignitaries, and the whole Ethos Team especially Carlos Santos, President, and CEO of Ethos for sharing and supporting our views for a better Africa. We look forward in working closely with this great team of forward thinkers.
Our core ethos and involvement in Africa centres around mutually beneficial projects and this means we will only take on projects that make business sense, but more importantly will make a difference to the lives of the people in those countries. Our core policy is one of poverty reduction.
