The CIS Global Business Forum will be held from 17 – 18 February 2016 at the Atlantis, The Palm, Dubai, UAE
About CIS GBF 2016
The concept of a new Silk Road, tying the economies of China and Europe, via Central Asia, Turkey and the Gulf, has taken a battering as conflict and economic troubles divide the CIS region. But behind the headlines, the business momentum is continuing and investments in infrastructure and logistics along the ancient trading routes are cutting costs and creating new business realities.
Dubai has played a major role in developing these connections, but the bigger opportunities for the Gulf region lie in reviving a Northern Corridor linking Dubai via Iran, Turkey and Azerbaijan to Moscow and the newly founded Eurasian Economic Union – a group of markets with around 350 million people. At the same time, CIS countries can also benefit from Dubai’s business dynamism.
The inaugural CIS GBF will explore how businesses can benefit from the emerging economic synergies of the CIS region and the development of stronger ties with the GCC, while managing the macroeconomic challenges, alongside thought-provoking discussions, one-on-one meetings and networking opportunities.
The objective of CIS GBF is to encourage and explore business opportunities within the region linking Dubai via Iran, Turkey and Azerbaijan to Moscow and the newly founded Eurasian Economic Union – a group of markets with around 350 million people. The CIS GBF also aims to channel the energy, inspiration and dialogue that the Forum generates into serious business development; turning it into the place that tomorrow’s big deals are conceived and nurtured.
