Under the leadership of Josh Stewart, Robusto Capital® is continuing to grow its investment portfolio through win-win bilateral collaborations and strategic partnerships.

HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum awarded Josh a highly coveted license at Dubai World Central in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). Josh was asked to help Dubai secure the right to host the works expo in 2020. Working with the Government of Belize, Josh secured 15 votes from Belize and the Caricom countries for the UAE’s right to host Expo 2020. Josh then saw establishing a UAE-Belize bilateral relationship as a chance to unite the two nations and drive investment opportunities.

Josh led high-level government delegations between the UAE and Belize when no formal links existed between the two countries previously. Subsequently, he was responsible for establishing formal bilateral relationships by signing the bilateral trade treaty and investor protection agreements at the United Nations Headquarters in 2015.

Following this, a bilateral economic cooperation agreement was signed at the UAE Ministry of Economy in 2019. As a result of these delegations, trade agreements, and treaties, investment has flowed from the UAE into Belize from both the government and private sectors. This county-to-county alliance continues to strengthen and develop further, with investments made in energy, infrastructure, and the medical sectors, among others.

As Robusto Capital® goes from strength to strength, Josh is working to develop similar win-win bilateral collaborations to stimulate the flow of investment opportunities. He is playing a pivotal role in developing Ireland into a global center of excellence for business aviation as a leader in sustainability, high-value tourism, and education through his positions as IBGAA Founding Chairman, with a seat on IBAC Governing Board in Montreal and as an EBAA member in Brussels.
