The forum brought together more than 300 delegates representing a diverse range of Abu Dhabi governmental, semi-governmental entities and entities from outside the UAE. It is an integral component of ENEC’s ongoing efforts to support the UAE’s transition to a knowledge-based economy by engaging with local stakeholders, driving growth, and setting new standards of excellence.

As a new organisation within this global industry, we continuously strive to meet and exceed the highest international standards of safety, security, and efficiency. Our pursuit of excellence and adherence to these high standards is what enables us to achieve our strategic goals and objectives, and we are committed to sharing our experience and expertise with our national stakeholders so that they too may benefit from our experience. By sharing what we have learned with other entities, we hope to support the continuous improvement of standards across Abu Dhabi Emirate and the wider UAE.”
