Former Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, His Excellency Gerhard Schröder will give his insights on the latest German–Emirati trade development in Abu Dhabi and the UAE during his opening keynote address at the Global Logistics Forum held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Rulers Representative in the Western Region.  

In addition, Schröder is expected to highlight various best practices in supply chain & logistics sector from around the world during the forum happening on 15th and 16th March 2010, at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahar, Abu Dhabi. Jointly presented by Abu Dhabi University and the Berlin Institute of Technology (TU-Berlin) Chair of Logistics, the first of its kind forum in the UAE will tackle how to customise local requirements of infrastructure projects in the region.

“The UAE continue to set new benchmarks for economic growth in the region with its significant developments in the fields of infrastructure, real estate and logistics. The Global Logistics Forum aims to bridge the gap between the global supply chain industry and the logistics sector in the Middle East particularly in the UAE and the GCC,” said James Graham, General Manager, Aim Events, the Events Management Division of Abu Dhabi University.

“Former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder is well in placed to address the forum in terms of the ongoing trade development projects in the Middle East with his proper understanding of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, risks, and success factors from the local and global point of view. He also conducted various strategic partnerships with countries in the region particularly in the UAE.”

Meanwhile, a host of leading local and international industry experts are also expected to speak during the forum such as Mohammed Al Shamsi, Port Unit Vice President, Khalifa Port & Industrial Zone Development, who will discuss the development of a modern port infrastructure in Abu Dhabi; Prof. Dr. Stephen Riemelt, Chief Executive Officer, IPIC Ferrostaal Contracting who will talk about the ChemaWEyaat programme in Abu Dhabi; Dr. Roland Zibell, Director, ADI Services FZE, a consultant to Dubai Logistics City and Peter Glatz, Chief Executive Officer, Schenker Middle East
