Abu DhabiMany British companies are keen to establish contacts in this rapidly growing, dynamic economy of United Arab Emirates.

Dubai ranks as one of the world’s leading trading centres and offers a gateway to a market of more than one billion people, covering the Gulf States, most of the Middle East, East Africa and Asia sub continent. There are reported to be 90,000 British citizens living in the UAE. The trade mission will also visit Abu Dhabi which has approximately 10% of the worlds proven oil reserve and 5% of the gas.

This trade mission is designed to help small and medium sized companies in Merseyside wanting to expand their activity in this market.
