The opening ceremony will take place in the presence of the highest-level representation from the host country, the United Arab Emirates, UNCTAD member States, the global business community, as well as other investment stakeholders and international organizations. As the Grand Opening of the World Investment Forum coincides with the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, UNCTAD has invited global leaders to record a video statement on the theme of “Investing in Poverty Eradication”. Extracts form these statements that will be broadcast throughout the day on the WIF online platform will also be presented during the Grand Opening.
