WHAT IS THE STUDY TOUR?

The study tour is an initiative that brings young professionals to the UAE March 22-29th, 2019 to develop a deeper understanding of the Middle East and to engage with thought leaders and peers in the UAE to exchange views on how rising leaders can work together to develop more innovative solutions to global challenges.

During the study tour, delegates will meet with UAE government officials, Emirati business leaders, cultural influencers, and rising Emirati professionals from all sectors to learn more about the UAE, its policy positions, and its deep relationship with the United States. In addition, participants will visit cultural sites such as the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the Louvre Abu Dhabi.

Upon their return, delegates will be invited to share their findings from the trip with other YPFP members.

The study tour is generously sponsored by the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Washington, DC.
