Cream of art world helps Saadiyat rise to the top

Saadiyat continues to host large-scale cultural attractions including Treasures of the World's Cultures - a major international exhibition.

ABU DHABI // From leading architects to sought-after global artefacts, Saadiyat Island proved in the last 12 months that it could attract the best in the world.
The year began on a positive note, with the announcement of a new timetable for the construction of the island's landmark museums.
Confidence that the capital's arm of the Louvre, the Guggenheim and the Zayed National Museum would be completed by 2017 reawakened enthusiasm for the long-delayed projects.
The revised delivery dates came three months after the Tourism Development and Investment Company (TDIC), the island's master developer, admitted construction was stalled. But although there were delays, none of the projects was scrapped.
"We are fully confident that we will fulfil our promise of delivering the level of museums expected from TDIC, the Saadiyat Cultural District and Abu Dhabi," said Mubarak Al Muhairi, general manager of TDIC, in January last year.
Saadiyat continued to host large-scale cultural attractions with the arrival of a major international exhibition. Treasures of the World's Cultures arrived at Manarat Al Saadiyat in April for three months. A collection of more than 250 artefacts and artworks spanning the whole of human civilisation, it delighted visitors with a thirst for a glimpse into bygone ages.
The exhibition, developed by the British Museum in 2002, was specifically tailored for Abu Dhabi and incorporated pieces from the Sharjah Archaeology Museum and Al Ain National Museum.
It was one in a series of shows being held in collaboration with the British Museum ahead of the scheduled opening of the Zayed National Museum in 2016.
Children were also included in the arts and culture scene last year, with a year-long exhibition for youngsters aged 8 to 12 beginning in September. Eco Future aims to teach youngsters how to lead a more sustainable and environmentally friendly lifestyle through interactive games.
Fifty galleries, representing 20 countries, drew crowds to Saadiyat in November with the fourth Abu Dhabi Art fair - the second time the event had been held there.
The fair included more Asian galleries this year, with a focus on emerging artists such as Hamdan Al Shamsi and Shamsa Al Amera.
The event's biggest hit was a talk by the three world-renowned architects behind Saadiyat's museums.
Jean Nouvel, the designer of Saadiyat's Louvre; Frank Gehry, who designed Guggenheim Abu Dhabi; and Norman Foster, designer of the Zayed National Museum, attracted large-scale attention and a standing-room only audience of about 1,000, with many people unable to get in.
"More collectors and visitors combined with quality art, performances and music made for a vibrant atmosphere at Abu Dhabi Art this year," said Sheikh Sultan bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, chairman of the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, after the event.
"The quality of the 2012 edition and the positive feedback received firmly establishes Abu Dhabi Art on the international art circuit and as a cultural hub linking east and west."
Guggenheim Abu Dhabi held a discussion about representing art from the Middle East in September as part of a series of events involving the public in discussions on the future museum.
Excitement about the Louvre continued to build with the release of details of more acquisitions for its permanent collection.
Among them is Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey's 1843 daguerreotype titled Ayoucha, the earliest known photographic representation of a veiled woman.
The year ahead already looks set to herald more exciting developments regarding the Louvre, which is due to open in 2015.
The next exhibition presenting a selection of its collection will open to the public on April 2, entitled Birth of a Museum.
There will also be plenty of events to satisfy those interested in the museums.
"The Talking Art Series for both the Louvre Abu Dhabi and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi will continue with a diverse variety of panels to introduce the public to the narrative, collections and developments of these museums," said Nicola Ure, senior cultural projects manager at the cultural department of TDIC.
"In addition to the fifth edition of Abu Dhabi Art, we will be presenting some contemporary art initiatives in the autumn which will be announced soon."
And there will be an important milestone for Saadiyat Cultural District in the early part of next year, as construction starts on the Louvre itself.

Three trading apps to try

Sharad Nair recommends three investment apps for UAE residents:

  • For beginners or people who want to start investing with limited capital, Mr Nair suggests eToro. “The low fees and low minimum balance requirements make the platform more accessible,” he says. “The user interface is straightforward to understand and operate, while its social element may help ease beginners into the idea of investing money by looking to a virtual community.”
  • If you’re an experienced investor, and have $10,000 or more to invest, consider Saxo Bank. “Saxo Bank offers a more comprehensive trading platform with advanced features and insight for more experienced users. It offers a more personalised approach to opening and operating an account on their platform,” he says.
  • Finally, StashAway could work for those who want a hands-off approach to their investing. “It removes one of the biggest challenges for novice traders: picking the securities in their portfolio,” Mr Nair says. “A goal-based approach or view towards investing can help motivate residents who may usually shy away from investment platforms.”

Important questions to consider

1. Where on the plane does my pet travel?

There are different types of travel available for pets:

  • Manifest cargo
  • Excess luggage in the hold
  • Excess luggage in the cabin

Each option is safe. The feasibility of each option is based on the size and breed of your pet, the airline they are traveling on and country they are travelling to.

 

2. What is the difference between my pet traveling as manifest cargo or as excess luggage?

If traveling as manifest cargo, your pet is traveling in the front hold of the plane and can travel with or without you being on the same plane. The cost of your pets travel is based on volumetric weight, in other words, the size of their travel crate.

If traveling as excess luggage, your pet will be in the rear hold of the plane and must be traveling under the ticket of a human passenger. The cost of your pets travel is based on the actual (combined) weight of your pet in their crate.

 

3. What happens when my pet arrives in the country they are traveling to?

As soon as the flight arrives, your pet will be taken from the plane straight to the airport terminal.

If your pet is traveling as excess luggage, they will taken to the oversized luggage area in the arrival hall. Once you clear passport control, you will be able to collect them at the same time as your normal luggage. As you exit the airport via the ‘something to declare’ customs channel you will be asked to present your pets travel paperwork to the customs official and / or the vet on duty. 

If your pet is traveling as manifest cargo, they will be taken to the Animal Reception Centre. There, their documentation will be reviewed by the staff of the ARC to ensure all is in order. At the same time, relevant customs formalities will be completed by staff based at the arriving airport. 

 

4. How long does the travel paperwork and other travel preparations take?

This depends entirely on the location that your pet is traveling to. Your pet relocation compnay will provide you with an accurate timeline of how long the relevant preparations will take and at what point in the process the various steps must be taken.

In some cases they can get your pet ‘travel ready’ in a few days. In others it can be up to six months or more.

 

5. What vaccinations does my pet need to travel?

Regardless of where your pet is traveling, they will need certain vaccinations. The exact vaccinations they need are entirely dependent on the location they are traveling to. The one vaccination that is mandatory for every country your pet may travel to is a rabies vaccination.

Other vaccinations may also be necessary. These will be advised to you as relevant. In every situation, it is essential to keep your vaccinations current and to not miss a due date, even by one day. To do so could severely hinder your pets travel plans.

There are different types of travel available for pets:

  • Manifest cargo
  • Excess luggage in the hold
  • Excess luggage in the cabin

Each option is safe. The feasibility of each option is based on the size and breed of your pet, the airline they are traveling on and country they are travelling to.

 

2. What is the difference between my pet traveling as manifest cargo or as excess luggage?

If traveling as manifest cargo, your pet is traveling in the front hold of the plane and can travel with or without you being on the same plane. The cost of your pets travel is based on volumetric weight, in other words, the size of their travel crate.

If traveling as excess luggage, your pet will be in the rear hold of the plane and must be traveling under the ticket of a human passenger. The cost of your pets travel is based on the actual (combined) weight of your pet in their crate.

 

3. What happens when my pet arrives in the country they are traveling to?

As soon as the flight arrives, your pet will be taken from the plane straight to the airport terminal.

If your pet is traveling as excess luggage, they will taken to the oversized luggage area in the arrival hall. Once you clear passport control, you will be able to collect them at the same time as your normal luggage. As you exit the airport via the ‘something to declare’ customs channel you will be asked to present your pets travel paperwork to the customs official and / or the vet on duty. 

If your pet is traveling as manifest cargo, they will be taken to the Animal Reception Centre. There, their documentation will be reviewed by the staff of the ARC to ensure all is in order. At the same time, relevant customs formalities will be completed by staff based at the arriving airport. 

 

4. How long does the travel paperwork and other travel preparations take?

This depends entirely on the location that your pet is traveling to. Your pet relocation compnay will provide you with an accurate timeline of how long the relevant preparations will take and at what point in the process the various steps must be taken.

In some cases they can get your pet ‘travel ready’ in a few days. In others it can be up to six months or more.

 

5. What vaccinations does my pet need to travel?

Regardless of where your pet is traveling, they will need certain vaccinations. The exact vaccinations they need are entirely dependent on the location they are traveling to. The one vaccination that is mandatory for every country your pet may travel to is a rabies vaccination.

Other vaccinations may also be necessary. These will be advised to you as relevant. In every situation, it is essential to keep your vaccinations current and to not miss a due date, even by one day. To do so could severely hinder your pets travel plans.

Safety 'top priority' for rival hyperloop company

The chief operating officer of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies, Andres de Leon, said his company's hyperloop technology is “ready” and safe.

He said the company prioritised safety throughout its development and, last year, Munich Re, one of the world's largest reinsurance companies, announced it was ready to insure their technology.

“Our levitation, propulsion, and vacuum technology have all been developed [...] over several decades and have been deployed and tested at full scale,” he said in a statement to The National.

“Only once the system has been certified and approved will it move people,” he said.

HyperloopTT has begun designing and engineering processes for its Abu Dhabi projects and hopes to break ground soon. 

With no delivery date yet announced, Mr de Leon said timelines had to be considered carefully, as government approval, permits, and regulations could create necessary delays.

The Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index

The Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index

Mazen Abukhater, principal and actuary at global consultancy Mercer, Middle East, says the company’s Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index - which benchmarks 34 pension schemes across the globe to assess their adequacy, sustainability and integrity - included Saudi Arabia for the first time this year to offer a glimpse into the region.

The index highlighted fundamental issues for all 34 countries, such as a rapid ageing population and a low growth / low interest environment putting pressure on expected returns. It also highlighted the increasing popularity around the world of defined contribution schemes.

“Average life expectancy has been increasing by about three years every 10 years. Someone born in 1947 is expected to live until 85 whereas someone born in 2007 is expected to live to 103,” Mr Abukhater told the Mena Pensions Conference.

“Are our systems equipped to handle these kind of life expectancies in the future? If so many people retire at 60, they are going to be in retirement for 43 years – so we need to adapt our retirement age to our changing life expectancy.”

Saudi Arabia came in the middle of Mercer’s ranking with a score of 58.9. The report said the country's index could be raised by improving the minimum level of support for the poorest aged individuals and increasing the labour force participation rate at older ages as life expectancies rise.

Mr Abukhater said the challenges of an ageing population, increased life expectancy and some individuals relying solely on their government for financial support in their retirement years will put the system under strain.

“To relieve that pressure, governments need to consider whether it is time to switch to a defined contribution scheme so that individuals can supplement their own future with the help of government support,” he said.

“Average life expectancy has been increasing by about three years every 10 years. Someone born in 1947 is expected to live until 85 whereas someone born in 2007 is expected to live to 103,” Mr Abukhater told the Mena Pensions Conference.

“Are our systems equipped to handle these kind of life expectancies in the future? If so many people retire at 60, they are going to be in retirement for 43 years – so we need to adapt our retirement age to our changing life expectancy.”

Saudi Arabia came in the middle of Mercer’s ranking with a score of 58.9. The report said the country's index could be raised by improving the minimum level of support for the poorest aged individuals and increasing the labour force participation rate at older ages as life expectancies rise.

Mr Abukhater said the challenges of an ageing population, increased life expectancy and some individuals relying solely on their government for financial support in their retirement years will put the system under strain.

“To relieve that pressure, governments need to consider whether it is time to switch to a defined contribution scheme so that individuals can supplement their own future with the help of government support,” he said.
