State Trade Reps to Visit Dubai for Wisconsin Trade Venture in 2017

Business officials of Wisconsin will take part in Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation trade venture in Dubai next year.


Companies based in Wisconsin, a Midwestern state in the U.S, who are interested in doing business in the Middle East are encouraged to participate in a Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation trade venture in Dubai. The sole aim of the trip is to link Wisconsin businesses with potential buyers, distributors, and partners in countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.

The trip is scheduled to commence from January 27  until February 2, 2017, and Wisconsin representatives will take part in a significant health and wellness trade show in Dubai. Dubai is the largest duty-free port in the Middle East and the region’s biggest economic center.

“A diverse exporting strategy is indispensable to business growth, and it serves to guard companies against varying global economic conditions,” says Katy Sinnott, WEDC vice president of international business development. “Through WEDC’s global trade ventures and with the assistance of WEDC’s global network, we help provide a clear path for Wisconsin companies to grow their sales in international markets,” he adds.

WEDC will organise a number of trade mission trips each year. Wisconsin trade officials will be in Argentina and Chile later this month. A similar trip to China is planned for March 2017.
