Richcomm to Host Elite Commodity Experts at the “GLOBAL COMMODITY OUTLOOK CONFERENCE IV” in Dubai

May 24 2016

Commodity experts from all over the world are gearing up to attend the 4th Global Commodity Outlook Conference (GCOC) on 12 February 2017 at the Almas Conference Centre in Dubai’s DMCC Free Zone.

According to a recent report by the World Bank, industrial commodities, such as energy and metals, are expected to witness strong gains due to a shortage in supply and strength in demand. On the other hand, precious metals are anticipated to be on the decline as interest rates rise and buying slows. The Global Commodity Outlook Conference IV will welcome keynote speakers from multiple commodity divisions to address these and other key drivers and constraints that will affect the global commodity market.

The event, themed ‘Changing of the Guard’ co-hosted by Richcomm Global Services and DMCC, in association with DGCX and Thomson Reuters, is expected to draw a record 500 delegates from government officials and industry specialists, regulatory professionals and investors, to trade financing and international brokers.

Gaurang Desai, Chief Executive Officer, DGCX, said: "This is the fourth year running we at the DGCX are collaborating with GCOC event. Today the GCOC has become a key event as it provides an invaluable platform for market professionals to debate the latest in commodities as well as exploring new opportunities together.”


Keynote speeches will be delivered by:

  • Omar Khan, Director, International Offices, Dubai Chamber of Commerce
  • Paresh Kotecha, Managing Director, Richcomm Global Services
  • Sanjeev Dutta, Director – Tea and Tradeflow, DMCC
  • Gaurang Desai, CEO, DGCX
  • Zhou Xiadong, General Manager, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Limited


Paresh Kotecha, Chairman and Managing Director of Richcomm, added: “After the remarkable success we’ve witnessed at last year’s conference, we look forward to welcoming the attendees and speakers this year in Dubai. Our panels are aimed at delivering insights on the challenges in the trade sector and how to effectively respond to the changing market trends.”
