Amedeo Scarpa, Italian Trade Commissioner to the UAE said: "The UAE is a very strategic market for the internationalisation of companies operating in the renewable energy sector. At the World Future Energy Summit this year we are hosting 16 specialised small and medium enterprises, including three start-ups. Looking at its numbers and at the effort that this country is making to shift toward more sustainable sources of energy, I am confident that the exchange of technologies, ideas and solutions between Italy and UAE can only grow."

"The World Future Energy Summit serves as a platform to demonstrate our innovative clean energy technologies for decarbonization, including hydrogen solutions which can competitively fulfil clean energy expectations and bring us one step closer towards a carbon neutral society. The event is also important in facilitating dialogue and collaboration as we collectively work towards addressing critical issues facing our planet, namely climate change." — SG
