The latest episode of DIFC Unplugged discusses innovation, infrastructure and industry developments, following the Centre’s 2017 Annual Review. 

We spoke with Arif Amiri, CEO of DIFC Authority, at the Four Seasons, DIFC to hear his thoughts on the Centre’s performance over the last year, the launch of initiatives such as FinTech Hive at DIFC and The Academy, and the district’s key property development projects, The Exchange and Gate Avenue at DIFC. 

Arif also gives us a progress update on the ambitious growth targets set out during the launch of the DIFC 2024 Strategy back in 2015, and what the Centre is doing to shape the future of finance across the Middle East, Africa and South Asia (MEASA) region.  Find out what you can expect from one of the world’s top ten international financial centres in 2018 and how it is expected to impact the broader financial services landscape.
