DUBAI: Dubai FDI, the investment development agency of the Dubai Economy, is finalising one of the largest economic delegations from Dubai in recent years for an official economic mission to Australia.
The Dubai move is part of its continuing efforts to strengthen existing economic cooperation and attract investments into the emirate. The mission, which will take place from June 25 to 29, 2018, will be represented by senior officials and executives from Dubai Exports, the export promotions agency of Dubai Economy, Dubai Multi-Commodities Center (DMCC), Dubai Science Park, Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority, Dubai South, Dubai Health Authority, Australian Business Council, Emirates Airline and Emirates SkyCargo.
The group will conduct a series of meetings with various public and private organizations in Sydney and Melbourne to highlight the advantages of investing in Dubai’s key sectors such as technology, health, agriculture, aerospace, transportation, as well as explore public private partnership opportunities in infrastructure development.
“Continuous engagement with our global partners is part of our relentless effort to promote Dubai as the ideal location for businesses to expand their global reach, given our connectivity to key markets in Asia, Middle East and Europe, our business-friendly legislations and unmatched work environment,” said Fahad Al Gergawi, CEO of Dubai FDI.
Australia and the UAE share a keen interest in several sectors that present enormous opportunity for Dubai to explore in new areas of cooperation. Dubai is the perfect gateway for Australian companies doing business in Asia, Europe and the MENSA region as Dubai’s physical location is very central supported by its global connectivity.
Saed Al Awadi, CEO, Dubai Exports, underscored that the Dubai Government mission demonstrates the strength of the emirate’s strong trade relations with Australia. He said Dubai continues to serve as an ideal gateway for Australian products and services to expand to many parts of the world given its highly efficient trading platforms and infrastructure facilities that enable the smooth flow of goods across the Middle East and neighboring regions.
