Accordingly, we decided to meet with our partners in various sectors to identify policies and develop scenarios leading to innovative solutions and opportunities in light of the successive changes in a fast-moving world.

On day one, meetings were held on the future of waste, the future of food safety in Ajman and the future of sustainable marine environment and fisheries.
