The creation of the Khalifa Fund is a key strategic move to support this aim by enhancing the potential of national entrepreneurs. The aims and objectives of the Khalifa Fund are to ensure that national entrepreneurs are given every opportunity to start their own businesses and contribute towards the economy.
