Some of the key entities in Dubai are joining hands to stage an event called ‘Dubai Week’ in China featuring the emirate’s opportunities in serving as an international gateway for exporters looking for economic development as well as cultural exchange. Dubai Week is scheduled to take place from October 27 to October 29, in Shanghai to highlight the bilateral relationship and create links for future mutual growth.
The event, organised by Expo 2020 along with its official partners, aims to expand the knowledge and understanding of Dubai among government officials, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and investors. It comprises discussions spanning business, innovation, education, Expo 2020 Dubai, and sports. The UAE delegates team includes representatives from various departments such as the Ministry of Economy, Emirates, Dubai Duty Free, DIFC Courts, and KHDA, among others.
“With a solid basis of mutual respect and trust, strengthened by the common goals of our ‘Look East’ focus and China’s Belt and Road Initiative, the bilateral relationship continues to grow, and this event presents a tremendous opportunity to strengthen further these ties. As the UAE is getting ready to host Expo 2020 Dubai, we also look forward to learning more from Shanghai’s success in 2010,” says Reem Al Hashemi, UAE Minister of State for International Cooperation, and Director General Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau.
The first Dubai Week in China was held in Beijing in May 2015 and was a huge success. The seven-day event has celebrated Dubai’s growing relationship with China and the exceptional opportunities it presents across business, tourism, culture, and lifestyle.
