At least 60 speakers from all over the world will focus on key topics, such as Smart Cities, Green Economy, Innovation, and Sustainable Development at this year's World Green Economy Summit," Al Tayer said.

"WETEX 2017 has become an important strategic platform for the companies specialised in renewables from the region and all over the world, through which they can present their green solutions, products and technologies, and build solid business relationships with the world's decision makers and major investors in these fields," added Al Tayer.
