As Paris' premier business platform for French-Gulf relations, Vision Golfe 2024 aims to host numerous sessions this year featuring ministers, leaders of international organizations, and distinguished speakers. Discussions will cover strategic topics such as the evolution of trade routes and the Gulf's pivotal role in global commerce today in a region looking towards a future where upgraded infrastructures and transport systems are the cornerstones of tomorrow.

A special focus at Vision Golfe this year will be on national ambitions for 2030, addressing key sectors like sustainable energy post-COP28, aiming for an energy revolution. Health in the Gulf countries also seeks to achieve excellence, while artificial intelligence opens up avenues for collaboration in research, development, and innovation. For French brands, consumer goods present new opportunities, supported by a practical guide for investments in the GCC. Additionally, major sporting events and tourism, adapted to the digital era, aim to redefine the leisure sector with connected experiences, fostering innovative interactions between French and Gulf participants.
