After a very successful edition in 2018, I am delighted that « Les Entretiens d’Abu Dhabi » will be back at Sorbonne Abu Dhabi in November 2022, under the leadership of CCI France UAE and with the full support of the French Embassy in the UAE. The theme chosen this year – the UAE: toward an international hub of talents – will address crucial issues on how to make a post-oil economic transition successful. 

H.E. Xavier Chatel, Ambassador of France to the UAE

As the UAE have started a new phase of their journey, preparing for the post oil era, developing an innovation and knowledge based economy and becoming an international hub, CCI France UAE is extremely proud to partner with Les Entretiens de Royaumont and La Sorbonne Abu Dhabi to engage into a meaningful discussion on the UAE drive to become a hub for talents. This will be the 3rd Edition of Entretiens d Abu Dhabi after the 2016 and 2018 editions and Les Prologues that took place last year during Expo 2020 Dubai.

Geoffroy Bunetel, President of CCI FRANCE UAE

The MOU we signed today is a token of mutual and continuous efforts between the two parties to bring to the UAE unique initiatives and events that would cater for market needs and tackle global trends and topics as well as enhance Franco-Emirati relations, and we look forward to the success of the Les Entretiens D’Abu Dhabi in November 2022.
