GABM is designed to further enhance the influx of investors in the emirate by providing a dedicated platform that showcases Ras Al Khaimah's strategic advantages as an investment haven before an audience of global business and government leaders.
The Ras Al Khaimah Investment Authority, or RAKIA, and its co-host the Ras Al Khaimah Department of Economic Development, officially launched the second edition of the annual GABM, which will run from October 9 and 10, 2011.
