Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TORONTO - Oct 31, 2018 - Whilst at the World Trade Centers Association’s recent board meeting in Toronto, Chairman of Nest Investments Mr. Abu Nahl worked alongside a number of distinguished colleagues from businesses worldwide to discuss matters of international trade and governance. The primary focus of the two-day meeting was to approve the Association’s Business Plan and Budget for 2019-2021. In addition, the board discussed objectives for further regionalisation, the outcomes of recent Risk and Internal Audit reports and multiple plans relating to governance and membership.
Mr. Abu Nahl has a long history of supporting international business relationships through his work with the World Trade Centers Association. He has served as a member of the board since 2004 and held the position of chairman of the board between 2008 and 2017. In August 2017, Mr. Abu Nahl was appointed as “Chairman Emeritus” of the WTCA in recognition of his past services to the association and its members. He was also elected to the executive committee at this time.
Since Mr. Abu Nahl began working with the WTCA, the association has implemented numerous reforms that have improved its transparency, delivered strategic goals and ensured that all members have knowledge of the board’s plans and aspirations. New corporate governance procedures adopted during this time include the publication of the WTCA’s official Vision, Mission and Values; the appointment of a CEO; the preparation of a three-year rolling Business Plan and Budget; and the creation of the WTCA Asia Pacific office in Beijing as a wholly owned subsidiary of WTCA.
I am eager to see the organisation continue as the premier global trade network organiser and help bring its future vision to developing markets.
The World Trade Centers Association, with more than 300 members in more than 90 countries, acts to promote trade and investment opportunities for commercial property developers, economic development agencies and international businesses looking to connect globally and prosper locally. The WTCA is a vital part of a dynamic global economy, providing international connections, iconic properties and integrated trade services under the umbrella of a prestigious brand. Mr. Abu Nahl is particularly passionate about the WTCA’s ambition to foster increased participation in world trade by businesses in emerging markets.
Mr. Abu Nahl said:
“My recent visit to Toronto to attend the World Trade Centers Association’s board meeting was a wholly productive trip. It is always incredibly stimulating and inspiring to gather together the world’s leading international business leaders, but I was especially delighted by the opportunity to discuss the next three years of WTCA growth in Toronto. During my time as a board member, the WTCA has gone from strength to strength. I am eager to see the organisation continue as the premier global trade network organiser and help bring its future vision to developing markets.”
