How to compete for investment in industry 4.0
About this video
FDI Center managing director Andreas Dressler moderates a panel discussion at the Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) in Dubai. Entitled “How to Compete for Investment in industry 4.0”, the session focuses on the competition among countries, regions and cities to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) with a high degree of value and innovation, particularly in the manufacturing sector. The expression “Industry 4.0” is often used as a catch-all term for these types of activities, and the session explores what “Industry 4.0” really means and the requirements that a location must fulfill for becoming an attractive location for Industry 4.0 investment.
The panelists in the discussion are Henrik von Scheel (Originator of Industry 4.0), Antti Aumo (Executive Director, Invest in Finland), Pilar Madrigal (Director at the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency, CINDE), Fatima Al Arabi (CEO at ALAF Capital), Joao Vasconcelos (Advisor at Clearwater International) and Lee Gibson Grant (Founder, DTX Project).
Andreas Dressler has participated in the last seven consecutive AIM conferences as a speaker and moderator. Hosted by the UAE Ministry of Economy, AIM is one of the leading investment-related events, attended by senior government officials and corporate executives from around the world.
