Creating New Opportunities in the Middle East and the UAE Webinar

29 June, 2021 11:00 AM-12:00 PM

The UAE enjoys healthy historic ties with countries in Europe, specifically Belgium and the Netherlands.

Treaty on Avoidance of Double Taxation and a Treaty on Investment Protection signed in March this year are expected to bolster trade and investment between Belgium and the UAE. Trade between the two countries has yet to reach its full potential although the latest figures indicate a positive trend.

Historically, the coasts of the UAE served as a prime commerce and supply points for Dutch traders and explorers. Trade between our two countries has flourished in recent years with non-oil foreign trade between the two nations at more than $3 billion.

As Abu Dhabi establishes itself as the logistics and trade hub for the region, Abu Dhabi Ports' Industrial Cities & Free Zone cluster offers a wealth of opportunity for investors looking to establish a base of operations in the emirate.

The webinar will focus on the opportunities available to Belgian and Dutch companies looking for ease of access to a market of 4.5 billion people by taking advantage of the state of the art infrastructure and facilities available for business in Abu Dhabi.

Key Topics to be Covered

  • Abu Dhabi's Initiatives Driving Investment Diversification and Ease of Doing Business
  • Support system for European businesses in Abu Dhabi (Benelux Business Council Presentation)
  • Creating New Opportunities in the Middle East & the UAE
  • A Success Story of an European company in the UAE
