Trade Mission: Exploring International Opportunities in Advanced Manufacturing, Energy and Supply Chain

October 5, 2019: 8:00 am - October 10, 2019: 5:00 pm

The Center for Economic Growth and the U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council are co-leading a trade mission to the United Arab Emirates in partnership with the Consulate General of the United Arab Emirates in New York. The delegation will consist of regional leaders in business, education, and local elected officials. The mission will take place October 5-10, 2019 in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The visit will occur in conjunction with GITEX 2019, one of the world’s largest tech trade shows which occurs every year in Dubai.
The focus of this mission is for the Capital Region’s business, education, and political leadership to expand the already strong relationship between the U.A.E. and the community. Delegates will be able to develop new contacts and explore new opportunities to sell their products abroad in an emerging technology market like the U.A.E., home of the primary investor of GLOBALFOUNDRIES.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the U.A.E., and its longstanding partnership with the United States across many sectors.  The U.A.E. has been the largest export market for the United States in the Middle East for 10 years, and has burgeoning cultural attractions across the country.
CEG and the U.S.-U.A.E. Business Council would like to include a delegation of private sector companies focused in the area of precision manufacturing, products and equipment development, and alternative energy, as well as local government, culture, and academic officials.  This trade mission will also be certified by the U.S. Department of Commerce and will have the full support of both the U.S. and U.A.E. Governments.
