The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy (ANRE) have started inviting enterprises and other entities to participate in the World Future Energy Summit (WFES 2017) and the International Water Summit (IWS 2017), both of which will be held in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), from January 16 to 19, 2017.

1. WFES 2017 and IWS 2017

WFES 2017 will be held in Abu Dhabi, UAE, from January 16 to 19, 2017. This event, which is organized by the Abu Dhabi government, is one of the world’s largest international exhibitions concerning renewable energy. International conferences concerning the same theme will be held in parallel with the exhibition. At the previous exhibition, which was held in January 2016, 600 enterprises and other entities from 32 countries participated, and 30,050 people from 150 countries attended (announced by the organizer).

In conjunction with WFES 2017, IWS 2017 will be held at the same time in Abu Dhabi, UAE. This event is an exhibition focusing on water-related businesses, such as those related to water resources and treatment, which is also organized by the Abu Dhabi government. At the previous exhibition, 185 enterprises and other entities from 32 countries participated and 10,214 people from 111 countries attended (announced by the organizer).

2. Invitation to participate in the Japan Pavilions

With a view to promoting investment in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and the Middle East, as well as increasing Japan’s presence in oil-producing countries, METI is planning to set up Japan Pavilions at WFES 2017 and IWS 2017, and has started inviting Japanese enterprises and other entities to participate.

A number of large enterprises, leading government officials, researchers, and others involved in energy, infrastructure, environment, and water-related industries from around the world are expected to participate in these exhibitions, which attract significant attention in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and the Middle East. Please consider participation in the Japan Pavilions as a great opportunity for public relations regarding leading-edge energy and water-related technologies and environmentally friendly technologies that Japan is renowned for, as well as a business-generating opportunity in Abu Dhabi and other oil- and gas-producing countries.
