The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of Canada’s fastest growing markets in the Middle East, with 2015 merchandise exports from Canada valued at over $2 billion and Canadian foreign direct investment from the UAE valued at over $12 billion. Peaceful and prosperous, the UAE offers Canadian businesses unlimited commercial opportunities in a diverse open economy. Located in the Arab Peninsula, the UAE is a well-established logistics hub providing access to markets in the Gulf, the Middle East, Africa, Eastern Europe, the Indian Subcontinent and the rest of Asia. Over 150 Canadian enterprises with an established operational presence in the UAE, along with over 45,000 Canadians who live and work there, have combined to create a very mature network of Canadian business connectivity.
This Market Information Session should be of interest to all PEI-based companies and organizations that are interested in gaining more insight on the ins and outs of doing business in the United Arab Emirates. Cultural considerations and overviews of sectoral opportunities in food, construction, manufacturing and professional services will inform and educate all in attendance.
This Market Information Session is in advance of Trade Team PEI’s planned Business Mission to the UAE and participation at the Gulfood Show in Dubai (www.gulfood.com), scheduled for the week of February 26th – March 3rd, 2017. PEI-based companies and organizations committing to participate in this mission will want to take the opportunity at and after this session to meet with Trade Team PEI officials and contracted matchmakers to discuss their market/mission objectives and plans.
