Dubai’s ambitious growth plans as well as policy focus on competitiveness and innovation have been explained to US investors and businesses during a series of ‘Doing Business in Dubai’ seminars hosted recently across Orlando, Dallas, Denver and San Francisco, by a delegation led by Dubai Investment Development Agency, Dubai FDI, an agency of the Department of Economic Development, DED.
The delegation, co-ordinated by Dubai FDI and Dubai Exports, the export promotion agency of DED, and supported by the UAE Embassy in Washington, DC and the US-UAE Business Council, included representatives from TECOM, Emirates
Group, Dubai South and Dubai Silicon
Fahad Al Gergawi, CEO of Dubai FDI, said that over 450 senior decision-makers from private and government sectors in the US know more about Dubai now as a result of the productive seminars and interactions the delegation had in the four cities during the 14-day mission.
“US businesses were keen to know how Dubai can enable them grow and expand. Representatives from Dubai South, TECOM and Dubai Silicon Oasis were particularly successful in highlighting the opportunities for innovation-driven and knowledge-based economic activity to thrive in Dubai’s free zones,” said Al Gergawi.
“There was palpable interest among US businesses in the efficiencies Dubai has added as a hub in regional and global supply chains, particularly in enabling faster movement of trade and people. We are looking forward to this interest translating into business initiatives and partnerships in the near future,” added Saed Al Awadi, CEO of Dubai Exports.
