The Forbes Global CEO Conference, currently in its twelfth year, will bring together some 400 of the world’s global leaders, CEOs, and entrepreneurs to discuss and debate global economic and business challenges as well as to strengthen existing relationships and build new partnerships.

This will be the first time that the Forbes Global CEO Conference will be held in Dubai and the Middle East. It has previously been held in Singapore, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Sydney and Kuala Lumpur.

Speaking on Enshaa’s sponsorship of the Forbes Global CEO Conference, Raza Jafar, Chief Executive Officer of Enshaa said, “The Forbes Global CEO conference is one of the most prestigious and recognized business events in the world and attended by top leaders, CEOs and entrepreneurs. This year’s conference will give such leaders the chance not only to discuss issues of global interest but also the opportunity to witness the tremendous progress Dubai has achieved. Located strategically between the major financial markets of the East and West, Dubai is ideally situated and very well equipped to host this event. Enshaa is proud to be one of the main sponsors of the Forbes 2012 CEO Conference.”

Under the theme of ‘The Race Ahead’, this year’s conference will focus on how policymakers and business leaders must address today’s global risks and opportunities. A series of panels will focus on how policy makers in the developed world must balance the need for austerity as well as stimulus, while leaders of emerging countries must adapt to a more moderate pace of growth.
