The ABLF Awards underlines the UAE’s status as one of the world’s most proactive and progressive nations, and a global hub that brings together the greatest minds in business and diverse other fields, to drive economic and social progress through visionary initiatives and results-oriented programmes. By celebrating the exemplary contribution of the leaders, the Awards serve as a referral point for the innovative thinking that originates in Asia and influences the rest of the world.

Every year, ABLF puts the spotlight on compelling leadership voices from Asia, who contribute to financial growth, social development, cultural awareness, and environmental sustainability. The ABLF has also played a key role in driving the UAE’s intra-Asia business corridors by building a reservoir of authentic Asian leadership that facilitates inspiration and learning through the experiences of Asia’s game changers ? the achievers, thinkers, policy architects, and industry veterans.

Majid Saif Al Ghurair, Chairman of Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry said, "We are delighted to extended our support to ABLF, which has become an important platform for international dialogue, collaboration and knowledge sharing. Given the UAE’s strong economies ties with leading Asian markets, the event provides an ideal opportunity to build our relations with key public and private sector stakeholders in Asia and explore new avenues of cooperation.

Al Ghurair explained that Asia remains a major focus of Dubai Chamber’s international expansion strategy, adding that the Chamber recently opened a new representative office in Mumbai which is tasked with exploring trade and investment potential in India and identifying business opportunities in the market that offer the most potential to UAE companies.

Malini N. Menon, Member of the ABLF Executive Council, said, "The 2018 Edition of the ABLF Awards marked 12 years of the leadership platform and its tremendous body of work in terms of showcasing the UAE as a global hub for the nations of Asia to connect with the rest of the world. The 2018 Award Recipients reflect deeply the values that are intrinsic to the legacy of the Late Sheikh Zayed, thus making the theme "Leadership Legacies: Honouring the Past. Shaping the Future." an authentic narrative.

The highlight of the event was Sheikh Nahyan’s address which was powerful in its content and delivery with the message of compassion-led leadership."

The success of the 11th edition of ABLF was underpinned by the whole-hearted support of its partners. Senaat and NPCC were the Presenting Partners; Dubai Chamber, Dubai FDI and District One were Associate Partners; and Rolls-Royce and Dhamani were Luxury Partners.
