Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC)—the world’s flagship free zone and Government of Dubai Authority on commodities trade and enterprise—concluded its Made For Trade Live global roadshow in London, hosting business leaders from across the UK to showcase Dubai’s unique business environment to firms looking to expand globally.
Held in partnership with the Arab British Chamber of Commerce (ABCC) and Asia House, the event saw senior DMCC executives brief 150 business leaders from various sectors on the ease of doing business in Dubai through DMCC, one of the world’s most interconnected business districts. The discussion shed light on opportunities to strengthen bilateral trade ties between the UAE and the UK.
Throughout the roadshow, DMCC highlighted Dubai’s resilience to global economic headwinds, its low inflationary environment, and business-friendly policies. Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman and CEO, DMCC, said, “Total trade in goods and services between the UK and UAE increased by 56.7 per cent to US$23.5 billion in the 12 months leading up to Q3 of 2022, thus highlighting DMCC’s role as a key strategic partner and why we are home to roughly 40 per cent of British businesses in the UAE.”
