With a strategic location, stable legal framework and pro-business policies, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of the leading growing economies in the region, with an expected growth of 4,5% for the upcoming years. UAE is a country with a young and fast-growing population, spearheading adoption of new technologies.
Coupled with a diversifying economy spanning finance, tourism, real estate, technology and digitalization, the UAE presents fertile ground for businesses across various sectors to flourish. As the next host of COP28, the UAE is committed to gradually decarbonizing its economy by investing over 100 billion USD in the next three decades to become the first carbon-neutral country in the region. These investments target to enable access to clean energy, high-quality education and healthcare, and digitalized services.
In this event you will have the opportunity to learn about the UAE market, government-driven strategic projects, important players and business opportunities, with particular focus on digitalization, energy and healthcare. In addition to HE Amna Fikri, Business Finland’s UAE Senior Advisors and Special Trade Advisor from the Embassy of Finland in Abu Dhabi will be on hand to discuss how we could help you boost your business in this competitive market. We encourage companies of different sizes and levels of maturity interested in getting new information, expanding to new markets, or needing help with their current business to participate and establish useful connections.
