Robert Visits the Green Sheikh in the UAE

Rob and Green Sheikh

IAE 2010 Alumni Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bin Ali Al Nuaimi hosted Robert Swan in Dubai for the Seventh CSR Summit. Sheikh Abdul Aziz, also known as the Green Sheikh, has helped to launch an official campaign to lobby the Ajman government to join 48 other countries in the signing of the Antarctic Treaty. If the campaign is successful, the UAE will be the first nation in the Middle East to sign the 50-year-old treaty.
