Sheikh Hamdan thanks the UAE delegation to Davos

The Crown Prince of Dubai said the delegation was a 'positive representation of our country'

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed tweeted out a picture of himself with the UAE delegation to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

The Crown Prince of Dubai took the opportunity to thank the delegates for their hard work at the annual summit and "their substantial contribution and positive representation of our country".

The delegation includes Mohammad Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs and The Future, Obaid Al Tayer, Minister of State for Financial Affairs and Dr Thani Al Zeyoudi, Minister of Climate Change and Environment, among others.

It is the Crown Prince’s first time participating in the Davos meeting.

In a meeting with Professor Klaus Schwab, the World Economic Forum founder and chief executive, Sheikh Hamdan said enhancing international co-operation and international partnerships was a cornerstone of the UAE's ongoing efforts to deliver the future.

The theme of this year's event at Davos is Globalisation 4.0: Shaping a Global Architecture in the Age of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

On Tuesday, the UAE signed a deal to host a research centre of the future in Dubai.

The new research centre will be run by the Dubai Future Foundation, of which Sheikh Hamdan is chairman of the board of trustees. Specialised project teams, including experts from the UAE and the forum’s network, will run pilot programmes in AI and blockchain.
