Advancing the Dubai-China relationship through trade

About the event

Dubai is a gateway to regional growth markets, and continues to present unparalleled potential to investors around the world despite the increasing stress placed on the global economy.

Dubai FDI has been hugely successful in promoting Dubai as a strategic international business hub, and articulating the emirate’s commercial appeal abroad.

This is why DMCC is delighted to become official partners of Dubai Investment Week 2019, and stage a forum titled, ‘Advancing the Dubai-China relationship through trade’.

The event will focus on evaluating the importance of Dubai-China trade ties, and understanding how best to advance them as a means of driving growth in a challenging global economic climate.
