A Swiss delegation headed by the director of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE), Dr. Walter Steinmann, attended the opening ceremony of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week 2016 (ADSW). It included speeches by the Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto and the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
Afterwards, the delegation visited the Swiss Pavilion at the World Future Energy Summit, which takes place as part of ADSW. A number of Swiss exhibitors are present this year, ranging from industry and service sector firms to state-funded cluster initiatives. A ribbon-cutting ceremony officially opened the exhibition stand.
