Dear Expert, Held under the patronage of H.E. Dr. Rashid Ahmed Bin-Fahad, Minister of Environment and Water in UAE and Chairman of ESMA Board of Directors, the Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA) is delighted to announce ‘the International Conference on Future Mobility’. Organised in association with Messe Frankfurt Middle East GmbH, organisers of the annual Automechanika exhibition in Dubai, the conference is set to be a unique platform for regulators, government authorities, key industry players and thought leaders to get together and discuss the future opportunities, advances and innovations in electric and hybrid vehicles.
ESMA has identified the growing need for electric and hybrid vehicles in the UAE and through encouraging the use of electric and hybrid vehicles, ESMA seeks to support the Dubai Smart City Initiative launched by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai as well as the goals of the UAE Vision 2021.
These initiatives aim to make the UAE a smart, integrated and connected country, sustainable with its resources and where environmental components are clean, healthy and sustainable. To this end ESMA is actively working towards drafting a federal law governing electric and hybrid vehicles in the UAE.
The conference is scheduled to be held at the Meydan Hotel in Dubai on 8 - 9 November 2015. The event will look at the various aspects of electric and hybrid vehicles including regulations, development of supporting infrastructure, distribution, market potential, research and development and more.
We look forward to your support and active participation at the event.
