Business Extra: Hala's Clemence Dutertre and the UAE's conference season

The National's Assistant Editor-in-Chief Mustafa Alrawi and Future Editor Kelsey Warner discuss the launch of one of the Middle East's biggest defence groups, EDGE

It’s been a busy week for the Business Extra team as the cooler weather kicks off the UAE conference season. The World Economic Forum has been in town, it is Dubai Future Week, the world’s largest oil and gas exhibition is set for Abu Dhabi in a few days’ time and we have the Dubai Airshow show coming up before the end of this month.

Those are only a handful of the things going on in November. Amid the action Mustafa Alrawi and Kelsey Warner discuss the launch of one of the Middle East's biggest defence groups, EDGE and they welcome guest host Clemence Dutertre, chief executive at the Careem-RTA joint venture Hala, to talk about the bridge between private and public sector ride-hailing, and discuss the rest of this week’s business headlines.
