AJMAN: The Khalifa Fund for Enterprise Development (KFED), in cooperation with the Ajman Municipality and Planning Department, recently hosted the special ‘Entrepreneurs Forum’ at the Fairmont Ajman hotel for Emirati-owned small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and KFED members. The event was held to help the attendees reinforce and enhance their communication ties with local government and semi-government entities, the private sector, local partners and stakeholders. The forum also served as a strategic opportunity for young Emirati entrepreneurs in the move to explore investment opportunities in Ajman.
Mouza Al Nasri, Acting Chief Executive Officer, KFED, said, “This is the first time that we are holding an event of this kind in Ajman. The Entrepreneurs Forum has been designed and developed to provide a key link between Emirati entrepreneurs, SMEs and various government and semi-government entities, as well as representatives from the private sector, which in turn, can help enhance communication, coordination and a smooth exchange of experiences and knowledge.”
Mouza expressed the KFED’s readiness in providing world class services and strategic support aimed towards enabling them in achieving their goals and help play a key role in the promotion of the UAE’s continuing economic and social development.
“Today’s forum demonstrates the KFED’s steadfast commitment to promote a culture of entrepreneurship, encouraging local Emiratis to invest in SMEs and contribute to the competitiveness of the national economy and the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). This event will help enable local Emirati youth to implement their innovative projects and take advantage of the incubating environment that Ajman is building by the continuous efforts to support entrepreneurs and instill a culture of self-employment in them,” Al Nasri added.
