Beyond the EU - Doing Business in the Arabian Gulf

Thursday 25th February 2021
10:00am - 11:00am


As Covid-19 continues to impact on global trade, and the UK gets to grips with a post Brexit relationship with the EU, it is a good time for companies to start looking further afield for new business prospects.

The Middle East, one of the World’s wealthiest regions, is fighting back against the virus. Local companies are transforming outmoded methods of conducting business, introducing new technologies to increase output, reducing overheads and improving standards.  

Over USD 100 billion worth of projects were awarded in 2020, despite the slow-down in regional economies. Many more are now being given the green light to continue and the Middle East is very much open for business and looking for innovative and creative UK products and services.

Join us for this webinar and learn about the many opportunities for British exporters to be a part of this renewed development. Companies that are involved in everything from construction, energy, transport through to retail, fashion, food and drink should look seriously at these lucrative markets.
