“The Sharjah FDI Forum will feature key note addresses, panel discussions, presentations and question and answer sessions around the fourth industrial revolution. It will examine how we can benefit from the seismic changes that we are seeing from the latest technological developments and how we can rise to the challenge to support the local economy and enhance its competitiveness.

Sharjah FDI Forum 2017 follows on from the previous two successful FDI conferences, with last year's event seeing the launch of Invest in Sharjah, this year's co-organiser of the event. The forum was established in 2015 to provide an invaluable opportunity to examine prospects of investment in the UAE in general and in Sharjah in particular, with a strong focus on the emirate's key economic sectors.
