The inaugural International Water Summit (IWS) has partnered with OOSKAnews, Inc., as the official publisher for the event to be held in Abu Dhabi in January 2013.
In January 2012, His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, launched the International Water Summit as part of a sustainability vision aimed at "ensuring the prosperity and welfare of mankind,” not only in the United Arab Emirates, but across the world, stating that “water is more important than oil for the UAE.”
The Summit will gather the leading minds from the global water community in policy, business and science to accelerate the development of sustainable water solutions for arid regions. The event will feature global leaders from governments, municipalities, utilities, contractors, consultants and senior decision makers from the public and private water sectors in the Middle East and internationally.
OOSKAnews will produce the official summit guide/exhibition catalog, summit daily newspaper and a post-summit synopsis report.
"This partnership is an appropriate alignment of the premium intellectual content available live at International Water Summit and OOSKAnews’ skills in provision of international water news, insight and intelligence", said Peter McConnell, Director of the International Water Summit.
David Duncan, Publisher and CEO of OOSKAnews, said "We welcome the opportunity to partner with this exciting and prestigious new event as it makes its debut on the global water scene".
The International Water Summit (15th to 17th January, 2013) will be co-located with the World Future Energy Summit at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC).
