The Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah International Foundation for Energy and Sustainable Development is partnering with the International Cooperation Platform (UIP-ICP) to organise the 8th International Bosphorus Summit in Turkey from November 28 to 30. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is opening the summit, which will focus on the theme “Design for the future — the new challenge of globalization.”
In its 8th year, the event provides a platform for major networking and partnering between nations. The International Cooperation Forum is an independent body established more than six years ago. It aims to promote effective multilateral cooperation and specialisations for sustainable development. The Turkish Forum regularly organises the World Bosphorus Summit, which is attended by nearly 5,000 people from 90 countries.
HE Abdullah bin Hamad al-Attiyah, founder, The Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah International Foundation for Energy and Sustainable Development, said, “It’s a great opportunity to work with our partner, UIP-ICP, to foster dialogue among our regional and international peers. We will emphasise the role of Qatar as a thought-leader and champion for international collaboration and communication.”
Qatar Petroleum president and CEO Saad Sherida al-Kaabi said: “We are very pleased to support the 8th Bosphorus Summit, which we believe will help enhance global cooperation and further bolster Qatar’s historic relations with Turkey.” The Al-Attiyah Foundation is co-managing the programme on the second day of the summit, dedicated to energy and sustainability.
The foundation will lead the discussion with world-renowned experts on ‘how the global energy landscape will evolve.’ On the first day of the summit, al-Attiyah will also join an expert ministerial panel exploring the theme in detail. In addition, Qatar will be represented by four leading companies from the oil and gas industry — Qatar Petroleum, Qatargas, Woqod and Gulf Helicopters.
