DMCC, a Government of Dubai authority on commodities trade and enterprise, has completed three roadshows this month visiting Sweden, the United Kingdom and China highlighting the opportunities available for companies seeking expansion to global markets through Dubai.
DMCC’s senior management visited the cities of Gothenburg and Stockholm in Sweden for the first time with its ‘Made for Trade Live’ international corporate roadshow. The events were held in partnership with the Swedish Trade and Investment Council, and with the support of the UAE Embassy in Sweden, and the Swedish Embassy in the UAE.
Eighty Swedish business leaders and senior delegates attended the events, and discussed wide ranging issues such as Dubai’s economic growth, governance, regulation and trade; as well as DMCC’s infrastructure, products and services, and the positive impact Expo 2020 Dubai will have on the city’s local economy and the opportunity on offer to foreign companies.
The next stop on the Made for Trade Live roadshow was London. Staged in partnership with the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, over 100 leading names of British business gathered in the room to discuss the opportunities for growth presented by Dubai.
“Our mandate at DMCC is to drive new trade flows to Dubai. These roadshows enable us to do just that by communicating the Dubai story and highlighting DMCC’s commercial appeal to foreign businesses. Our first visit to Sweden was very successful, and we look forward to working more closely with the Swedish business community and building partnerships in a new market,” said Ahmed bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of DMCC.
“With bilateral trade between the UAE and the United Kingdom expected to reach approximately AED121 billion by 2020, it was important to visit London again this year. DMCC offers British firms an unprecedented opportunity to expand their enterprise, and the economic impact of Expo 2020 Dubai should be appealing to all ambitious companies looking to do business in this part of the world,” he added.
Since its inception, DMCC attracted over 3,000 businesses from 17 cities around the world to its international roadshows.
