Why Dubai is top on investors’ minds

Dubai FDI, the foreign direct investment promotion agency of Dubai Economy, seeks to provide innovative and modern solutions that meet the aspirations of current and future investors, Sami Al Qamzi, director-general of Dubai Economy, said on Monday.

Speaking at the opening day of Dubai Investment Week, Al Qamzi said Dubai Economy is keen to move forward, achieve sustainable development and maintain a competitive environment by developing appropriate frameworks and applying global best practices. “The establishment of the ‘Hamdan Centre for the Future of Investment’ will help channel foreign direct investment globally into sustainable development,” Al Qamzi said.

He pointed out that Dubai has maintained its position as the world’s preferred destination for foreign direct investment, standing seventh in the world with total FDI inflows of Dh25.5 billion in 2016. “The emirate was also ranked third globally in terms of the number of FDI projects attracted during the same year, with 247 projects,” said Al Qamzi.

The third edition of Dubai Investment Week, which opened on Monday, witnessed the launch of several innovative initiatives, including the ‘Dubai Advantages’ report and the ‘Dubai Impact Investment Award’.

Organised by the Dubai Investment Development Agency (Dubai FDI), Dubai Investment Week 2017 seeks to introduce investors to Dubai’s advantages as a strategic hub in the global economy, a gateway to regional growth markets and a leading smart and sustainable city of the future.

Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, inaugurated the Dubai Investment Week that will run till October 19. The event has brought together government and private sector leaders from the region and beyond, representatives of banks and investment funds, official delegations and international experts in a series of dialogues, workshops, closed meetings and field visits.

A ‘leadership dialogue’ on the opening day featured prominent government and private sector leaders including Sultan bin Sulayem, chairman of DP World and Dubai Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation, and Mohamed Ali Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Properties. They were interviewed by Courtney Fingar, editor-in-chief of fDi Intelligence.

Sheikh Maktoum along with Al Qamzi and Fahad Al Gergawi, CEO of Dubai FDI, honoured the winners of the inaugural ‘Dubai Impact FDI Award’. Brookfield (Largest Greenfield Investment in Dubai), Alibaba Cloud Services (Largest High-Technology Investment into Dubai) and Amazon (Largest M&A Investment into Dubai) were the winners in each of the three award categories.

Al Qamzi said the ‘Hamdan Centre for the Future of Investment’ would provide a unique model for global partnerships aimed at developing and financing sustainable investment projects and assessing their economic, social and environmental impact.

“Dubai is a city of the future, a gateway to promising regional markets and a global hub for business – it has all the important drivers that boost the confidence of the local and international investor community,” said Al Gergawi.

He said the logistics infrastructure in Dubai is among the best in the world and a bridge to a vast consumer market of over two billion people. “We are leveraging the Dubai Investment Week platform to keep abreast of the latest investment opportunities in the strategic and emerging economic sectors in the region and worldwide, to identify investor views and to develop policies that enhance future readiness,” said Al Gergawi.

He said the mission of the Dubai Investment Week is not only to showcase investment opportunities in Dubai, but also to present current and future investment trends and ways to promote sustainable and competitive partnerships between local and global investors.

Waste To Energy Power Plants

Generic issues with Waste

Generic issues with Landfills

Leachate is a liquid that is formed when the waste decays. Rainfall percolating through the waste will dissolve soluble components of the waste, but leachate will also contain in-solubles such as oils and small particles. It has to be monitored as it can be toxic and cause damage to the surrounding environment if it is not treated correctly.

Leachate production is an inevitable consequence of the landfilling of wastes, it is a process that can last for a number of decades, possibly in excess of 100 years on larger contained sites.

Landfill gas is a by-product generated from the decomposition of biodegradable wastes such as household waste. The major constituents of landfill gas are methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2).

Typically 45% – 65% of landfill gas is methane. At certain concentrations a mixture of methane or hydrogen may ignite causing fires or explosions.

Our value proposition:

  • Financially sound

Renewable Energy

ICONS is heavily engaged in Research & Development to reduce global carbon emissions from energy production – CO2 to ZERO by 2050.

  • On average 5 tons each per world population
  • 6.8 billion people worldwide 2010 (heading to 9 billion)

Our efforts are also extended to the Research & Development in the renewable energy sector to reduce energy prices in order to be twice as cheep. Energy miracle !

  • 6.8 billion people worldwide 2010
  • Of the above, about 2 billion are without energy
  • To reduce poverty the best solution is to lower the price of energy

Renewable energy is energy which comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides and geothermal heat, which are renewable (naturally replenished).

In 2008, about 19% of global final energy consumption came from renewables, with 13% coming from traditional biomass, which is mainly used for heating, and 3.2% from hydroelectricity. New renewables (small hydro, modern biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, and biofuels) accounted for another 2.7% and are growing very rapidly.

The share of renewables in electricity generation is around 18%, with 15% of global electricity coming from hydroelectricity and 3% from new renewables.

Wind power is growing at the rate of 30% annually, with a worldwide installed capacity of 158 gigawatts (GW) in 2009, and is widely used in Europe, Asia, and the United States. At the end of 2009, cumulative global photovoltaic (PV) installations surpassed 21 GW and PV power stations are popular in Germany and Spain. Solar thermal power stations operate in the USA and Spain, and the largest of these is the 354 megawatt (MW) SEGS power plant in the Mojave Desert. The world’s largest geothermal power installation is The Geysers in California, with a rated capacity of 750 MW. Brazil has one of the largest renewable energy programs in the world, involving production of ethanol fuel from sugar cane, and ethanol now provides 18% of the country’s automotive fuel. Ethanol fuel is also widely available in the USA.

While many renewable energy projects are large-scale, renewable technologies are also suited to rural and remote areas, where energy is often crucial in human development. Globally, an estimated 3 million households get power from small solar PV systems. Micro-hydro systems configured into village-scale or county-scale mini-grids serve many areas. More than 30 million rural households get lighting and cooking from biogas made in household-scale digesters. Biomass cookstoves are used by 160 million households.

Climate change concerns, coupled with high oil prices, peak oil, and increasing government support, are driving increasing renewable energy legislation, incentives and commercialization. New government spending, regulation and policies helped the industry weather the global financial crisis better than many other sectors.

At ICONS we combine our Research & Development activities with the design, implementation and installation of renewable energy projects that avail of the latest state of the art technology. By endeavouring in this mission our objectives are to contribute to the reduction of global carbon emissions from energy production – CO2 to ZERO by 2050 and reduce energy prices in order to be twice as cheep. Energy miracle !

How to become an Actor or Actress

ICONS CONSULTING

Becoming an Actor or an Actress is the dream of many people. Stardom is the goal of many, but the reality of few. You’ll need Strong Will, Perseverance, Time, Talent, Commitment and Dedication.

Becoming an Actor or an Actress is often a long road with many sacrifices along the way, however it is possible. Get all the experience that you can, and take every opportunity and role possible. Get your name and face out there. That is how you get known and this is where we can help!.

Here is the basic road to becoming a star:


The first thing you need to do is to get in contact with a talent agency and set up an audition. This will establish you with an agency before uprooting yourself and moving with only a dream.

The second thing you need to do to become an Actor or Actress is to enroll in some professional acting classes. Do this near your home. Also, get involved in some acting at the local scene. Join your community drama club or theatre and get a little experience under your belt.

We can advise you on the possibilities that you have around your area.

Now that you have got involved with a talent agency and found a path for experience in your city. You will need to be readily available to attend all auditions or casting calls that your agent sets you up with.

Jump at nearly every opportunity that comes your way. Take every role you can get, for experience if nothing else. Expect to start at the bottom and work your way up. Not everyone becomes a breakthrough artist right away.

Now, become a star!
