Dubai Chamber Global Business Forum Series

The Global Business Forum (GBF) series was initiated in 2013 as part of Dubai Chamber’s strategy of international expansion, to position Dubai as the gateway to the world.

Global Business Forum – Africa

Business confidence is returning to Africa. Impressive entrepreneurs have sprung up across the continent, changing reality on the ground. Forward-thinking policy-makers are implementing solutions to problems that have hindered progress for decades. Both business and government leaders are leveraging digital technologies and working across borders to achieve connectivity and scale. With the right support, Africa has the potential to open a new era of growth and prosperity.

As the flagship event of Dubai’s renowned Global Business Forum series, the Forum is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The Forum is organised by Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry and produced in association with The Economist Events.

GBF Africa encourages international revenue flows into Africa by engaging leading decision-makers on the global investment scene. The Forum will involve prominent African stakeholders to engage in a dialogue at the highest level of implementation, advising on key strategic directives related to Africa’s economic outlook.

Global Business Forum – Latin America

Identifying new opportunities for trade and investment is far from simple in today’s volatile world. Global alliances are shifting, technological change is accelerating and countries across Latin America and the Arabian Gulf are rethinking the drivers of economic growth as they diversify their economies.

Over the past three years, Global Business Forum (GBF) Latin America has built new partnerships between businesses in the Arabian Gulf region and those in Latin America and the Caribbean. Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry has organised two Forums in Dubai, and one edition in Panama; ran trade missions across Latin America, opened international offices in Brazil, Panama and Argentina; and signed cooperation agreements with Costa Rica and Bogota Chamber of Commerce. We experienced that, while geographically far apart, the potential for productive partnerships across a sectors, including agribusiness, logistics, energy, tourism and financial services, is immense.

Demonstrating our commitment to Latin America, the third GBF Latin America will take place in Dubai. Organized by Dubai Chamber, in partnership with the Inter-American Development Bank, and programmed in association with Economist Events, GBF Latin America 2019 took place in Panama City – like Dubai a gateway for conducting business across a wider region. More than 800 high-level delegates from 50 countries attended the Forum over the two days, including heads of state, ministers, top government officials, policymakers and business leaders, while 300 bilateral business meetings were held on the sidelines of the event.

As Dubai Chamber expands its presence in Latin America, we will continue to build our relationships with key public and private sector stakeholders and identify business opportunities in the region that offer the most potential for our members.
