Why Trade Missions?

In our ongoing commitment to support local businesses, Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry has introduced its Trade Mission programme assisting Dubai-based companies to grow internationally. Each business trip is tailored around specific business opportunities relevant to our members. Delegates will be invited to join the Trade Mission based on their strategic growth objectives and nature of business. The Trade Mission programme is designed to match these objectives with business opportunities existing in the targeted market via the introduction to key industry decision-makers and well-placed government officials.

Sector-Specific or Country-Focused Trade Missions

A sector-specific Trade Mission includes representatives from a limited number of industry sectors, building the visit around a specific trade fair, congress or range of seminars. During a country-focused Trade Mission, the visit will offer an introduction to business opportunities across a number of sectors but within a certain country or geographical region.

Regional Trade Missions

The Regional Trade Mission Programme targets emerging regions with high growth potential related to their trade and investment opportunities. Besides promoting Dubai as an international business hub, the multiple-destination visits aim to strengthen business relations with the respective markets.
