Mission UAE with HEM Peter de Crem | February 2017

Where? United Arab Emirates
When? 11-17 February

The Arab-Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce, with the support of FIT, BIE, AWEX, the Federation of Belgian Chambers of Commerce, the Embassy of Belgium in the UAE, and the Embassy of the UAE in Belgium, has the pleasure to invite you to its Multisectoral Economic Mission to the United Arab Emirates from the 11 to 17 February 2017.

This Mission, which will be presided over by H.E.M. Pieter de Crem, Secretary of State for Foreign Trade, will focus on Abu Dhabi and Dubai but also on less explored Emirates such as Sharjah, Ras Al-Khaima and Fujairah - less known than Abu Dhabi and Dubai, but offering a real potential for SMEs.

The UAE, which is the second largest economy in the GCC, is a very fertile and attractive consumer market with a growing, diversified economy, in addition to a political and economic stability.

Benefits for Belgian businesses include among others:

  • Belgium’s largest trading partner in the Arab region
  • Easy access to oil resources
  • Proximity to other Gulf markets
  • Low energy costs
  • High purchasing power
  • Solid and profitable banking sector
  • favourable regulations for foreign investments
  • Large pool of expatriate labour
  • Willingness to diversify the economy
  • Common use of English in business

This Economic Mission will constitute a unique opportunity to get introduced to niche markets, as well as to meet with local entrepreneurs and Government Officials. What is more, local Economic Attachés will take care to organize your appointments and arrange your programme personally!

Hoping to see your company represented within our Delegation to the UAE!
