CEO/Founder of Aria to attend World Economic Forum this month in Davos.

Aria, an international commodities trading company specializing in iron ore and steel raw materials, is pleased to announce the attendance of its founder and CEO, Alireza Roodsari and his team at the World Economic Forum this month in Davos, Switzerland. This is Roodsari’s second WEF event following last September’s Annual Meeting of the New Champions in Dalian, China. Hamburg-based Aria is the first German company, one of only 150 listed companies, allowed to trade on China´s iron ore trading platform, CMBX, and controls a stock of 27 million tons of iron ore with a market value of US$ 2.5 billion. Last December, Aria became a member of the WEF Global Growth Community (GGC). The GGC was established in 2007 in order to `engage dynamic high-growth companies with the potential to be tomorrow’s industry leaders and to become a driving force of economic and social change.´ „Last year’s experience at the Summer Davos in China was very positive for Aria – it came at a right moment, less than a year after the company began trading on CMBX. Now as a new GGC company, we are looking forward to the upcoming Annual Meeting in Davos,“ said Roodsari. With 11 offices and over 40 highly-skilled professionals located across Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America, Aria forecasts continued growth for 2014. „Last year was definitely a challenge compared to the previous growth years, we knew that and planned accordingly and are pleased to announce that we are currently setting up a US $2 billion fund regulated by BaFin, Germany´s Federal Financial Supervisory Authority, to develop Aria projects, once again, matching and overcoming our growth strategy for the year,“ stated Roodsari. Aria is currently collaborating with Spanish giant, Acciona, in an estimated €240 million environmental regeneration and excavation project in the Bay of Portman in Murcia. “We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones at the WEF,” said Roodsari.
