Becky Anderson hosts the first edition of Connect the World from Abu Dhabi

For those of you who caught the inaugural show, I hope you'll agree we had a successful launch Sunday for Connect the World with Becky Anderson from Abu Dhabi.  For those of you who didn't, can I suggest setting a digital diary "alert" weekdays at 7p local!

Onwards. . . With the first show in the bag, I'm mindful that the editorial narrative for our MidEast prime-time show must continue to provide this region with the best of the international news agenda – using CNN's incredible asset base of reporters around the world – with a focus, as news befits, on the stories that resonate here – in all their glory.

To that end, your input as viewers of the show and as consumers of the incredibly successful cnn.com/Arabic is absolutely crucial.  You are part of "our" Global Conversation and I appeal to you ALL to get involved via the cnn.com site, on Twitter, on Instagram and on Facebook as we build our rundowns to reflect the news, views and opinion across the region.

And just so that you know: having been born and brought up with the vagaries of the British weather, I'm still getting used to waking up to blue skies and genuine smiles in the UAE!  Believe me, this is ONE challenge that aim getting used to incredibly quickly!!

    Hi, Keep the global view – this is your strength. The region is reach on history,culture and development. Let us(not in the sun but in gloomy Europe) learn about it .
    Be as dynamic as in London – some studio upgrades are due.
    How the crisis in Ukraine reflects in the region? How the Islamic banking competes with other fin. hubs.?
    What is going on in IRENA ? How international is Abu Dhabi?
