RockTree Capital joined more than 350 high-ranking government officials, global finance leaders, policy makers and academics in the Boao Forum for Asia Financial Cooperation Conference in Dubai.


The BoAo Forum, recognized as the most prestigious forum in the region, focused on issues of critical financial importance to Asian countries and integrating them into the global economy. It is modeled after the World Economic Forum held annually in Davos, Switzerland, and is headquartered in China.


This year marked a milestone for the forum.  “Our decision to stage the event in Dubai, strategically located at the crossroads between East and West, is recognition of its growing importance as a conduit for financing, trade and exchange between East and West Asia, as well as the role it can play in financing infrastructure and energy investments that will help further integrate Asia in the world economy,” said Zhou Wenzhong, Secretary-General for the BFA. 


Also in attendance were the former Vice Premier of China Zeng Peiyan along with Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Matoum, former Prime Minister of Pakistan Shaukat Aziz, former Prime Minister of France Dominique de Villepin, and President of China Development Bank Zheng Zhijie.


The Boao Forum for Asia attracts global leaders to discuss world issues and forge a common agenda, according a statement from the forum.


RockTree Capital’s participation at the forum was particularly significant as it shows their involvement with real estate investors and developers from the Middle East and Asia seeking to successfully co-operate in development and finance, as well as enter other real estate markets such as North America and Europe. As co-operation between governments in MENA (Middle East North Africa) and China grows, so too has investment and business co-operation. RockTree bridges these major regions for real estate investment and development, providing a convergence of local development projects and global finance.
