Dubai Exports to begin S.America trade mission
Dubai, June 8, 2011
Dubai Exports, an agency of the Department of Economic Development (DED), is launching its second trade mission to South America, particularly in Argentina, Brazil and Chile.
After the first trade mission to South America in 2010, Dubai Exports is organised a bigger trade mission to these countries this year. Happening from June 11 to 20, and with more than 15 companies from Dubai and the UAE participating, the trade mission aims to open new markets in South America for local companies in the country.
“Our highly successful government mission to Argentina, Brazil and Chile last year gave us the privilege of meeting and discussing various aspects of closer economic cooperation with South America’s leaders. The mission in 2010 has opened several doors of investment and trade on both sides with several of our governmental and semi-governmental mission partners, now working closely with the South American governments on projects of mutual interest,” said Saed Al Awadi, chief executive officer, Dubai Exports.
Among the activities the UAE delegates will undertake include high level meetings with the Brazilian and Argentinean Arab Chambers of Commerce, Prochile, among other local and federal government entities in the three countries, to provide the participants with on-the-ground technical and regulatory information on the intricacies of bilateral trade with South America. There will also be company and market visits, as well as meetings and B2B programmes with South American companies.-TradeArabia News Service
