Welcome Note by H.E. Mohammed Helal Al Muhairi


Director General of the Abu Dhabi Chamber


I am pleased to welcome all the participants in the International Franchise Conference 2013 which is organized by Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry on the 6th and 7th of November 2013.

Organizing this specialized conference comes within the Chamber’s efforts in developing and supporting this type of activities and mechanisms and to create an investment and business environment necessary to ensure the success of projects. Organizing the conference also comes to spread awareness and knowledge and to preserve the rights of local investors in the Franchise and to save him from any unhealthy practices, especially that the conference will cover a number of important points which are related to contracts and disputes in the Franchise system so that to give investors an idea about what should have their interests and what they are in need for to secure stable and successful relations.

I hope that this conference will encourage Emirati business pioneers to enter and benefit from the Franchise projects and to spread awareness of the system as a tool to develop investments and businesses as well. This conference will also aim at creating opportunities to create successful initiatives between foreign companies, Emirati business pioneers and owners of small and medium enterprises, and to take a closer look at the best experiments and international practices in Franchise. Other goals behind organizing this conference include drawing official and legal frames to support the Franchise in the UAE in general and the Emirate of Abu Dhabi in particular through cooperating with global Franchise companies.

I would like to thank everyone for their support and awareness in joining us in this event which is being organized for the first time in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Mohammed Helal Al Muhairi
Director General of the Abu Dhabi Chamber
