Published in Saudi Press Agency on 16 - 01 - 2019

Governor of the General Investment Authority Engineer Ibrahim Al-Omar has stressed that the world in which we live is changing rapidly, thanks to the great scientific and technological progress we are witnessing.
This came in a speech he delivered today at Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week 2019.
He said "We are facing a number of serious and major threats and challenges that pose a threat to our lives on the planet and also pose a threat to future generations,"
He added that among the issues to be addressed seriously and decisively are climate change, water cleanliness, air quality, sustainable economic growth and the promotion of peace for sustainable development.
"Aspects of sustainable development are considered as essential for any country in the world to achieve prosperity and growth," he said, pointing to the necessity for a balance between economic growth, conservation and environmental protection."
He pointed out that one of the key aspects of promoting and guiding sustainable development is upgrading and ensuring the availability of sustainable financing, which is not only about attracting foreign direct investment to any country, but also of stimulating domestic investments which in turn are in line with economic development.
