Dubai, UAE — From 15 to 17 November 2023, the Greater Caspian Region (GCR) will be the focus of the annual Caspian Week Forum which will be held for the first time in Dubai.
This year's prestigious event, hosted by the Greater Caspian Association and Integral Group of Companies in collaboration with DP World, is set to take place at the Global Freight Summit to showcase logistics and trade synergy, implementation of digital technologies and development of logistics corridors, further emphasizing the global importance of the Region's opportunities and challenges.
This marks a significant milestone as the Forum steps out of its traditional venue in Davos, Switzerland, to further its reach and impact. In a strategic partnership with DP World, the renowned global smart supply chain logistics provider, the Caspian Week Forum 2023 is poised to set new benchmarks in bolstering the GCR's logistics and trade landscape.
The Caspian Week Forum, which typically centers on promoting dialogues and collaboration between the Greater Caspian Region and the World, but also within the Region, will continue its legacy by focusing on cutting-edge solutions to address the GCR's logistical complexities. The convergence of logistic corridors, trade integration, and financial networks will take center stage, fostering a unified system that transcends borders and simplifies cross-border operations.
With a resolute focus on investment prospects, collaborative synergies, and regional challenges, Caspian Week Forum 2023 is set to captivate global players who recognize the untapped potential of the GCR. This platform will nurture dialogues and strategies across the realms of business, economics, education, science, and culture, ensuring the Region's connectivity to the global stage. Participants will have exclusive opportunities to connect with distinguished luminaries, including representatives from international organizations like United Nations, International Chamber of Commerce and FIATA as well as top-level Government officials from the countries of the Region, Think Tanks, academic and educational establishments and influential business leaders. Their insights, strategies, and solutions will pave the way for the GCR's accelerated development, promising a future of innovation and prosperity.
Murat Seitnepesov, Chairman of the Caspian Week Forum Organizing Committee, expressed his enthusiasm about the collaboration, stating, "We are delighted to partner with DP World for this joint event in Dubai. The GCR is very important for global energy and food security, and logistics connectivity is one of the key factors in the development of the region. This forum will undoubtedly become an excellent platform for discussing ideas and presenting projects important to the GCR, especially on the creation of integrated trade and logistics smart systems, inviting partners and attracting investments for the implementation of development projects in the region".
Mike Bhaskaran, COO of Digital Technology at DP World, emphasised: "We are thrilled to join hands with Caspian Week 2023 at this year's Global Freight Summit. The Greater Caspian Region holds immense potential, and we believe that by integrating logistics and trade while fostering collaboration between public and private sectors, we can overcome the challenges and unlock growth opportunities for all stakeholders involved."
