WETEX, which is organised by DEWA for the 19th consecutive years under the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has cemented its position as one of the largest specialised exhibitions in the world. It is an ideal platform for international companies to introduce their latest innovative solutions, services, and products. This comes at a time when the UAE and countries in the region continue launching promising projects in energy, water, the environment, and clean energy. These efforts contribute to achieving the sustainable development and the shift from an economy that is dependent on gas and oil to a diverse and more sustainable one that protects natural resources and the environment and enhances the global competitiveness of countries of the region.

WETEX has been growing steadily over the past years in terms of the number of participants and area, which emphasises the key role of the exhibition which witnessed launching several new technologies over the years. It also witnessed the announcement of major projects that have changed the energy sector regionally and globally, in light of the huge developments in the energy and water industries and associated fields.

I am confident that WETEX 2017 will play an important role in enhancing sustainability by providing an important platform that brings together manufacturers and service providers with officials, decision makers, investors, and buyers from the UAE and the region. This will contribute to ensuring a brighter future for generations to come.
