Transcript:

Globally, the financial markets, as we are aware of, are going through a lot of challenges, but I think these challenges will be overcome very soon. What we do here is try to show the opportunities which are available in the ADX and to promote them internationally. And thank God we always receive positive feedback. Every time we do such a promotion, we meet with asset management funds and we meet with pension funds globally, and we show them the investment opportunities which are available in our region, and in Abu Dhabi specifically. We come back with their investment and their interest, and not to forget the experience and knowledge that we bring back with us when we come to Abu Dhabi.
