According to the Ministry of Economy report, trade exchange between UAE and China in 2017 grew 15.1 percent over 2016. Non-oil foreign trade exchange between the UAE and China rose to Dh195.8 billion in 2017 compared to Dh169bn in 2016.

“The Middle East is now forming a vital part of China’s trade strategy. As the largest China sourcing platform for the region, we are committed to raising the expectations of exhibitors and our visitors. The inclusion of specialized conferences this year enables us to highlight some of the trending topics such as manufacturing and franchising with highly qualified speakers. Emphasis will be laid on the technical, quality as well as the after sales levels that the Chinese companies are bringing to the table. We are certain that these interactions will pave the way for more companies starting businesses locally with the knowledge and experience in their sectors,” said, Binu Pillai, Chief Operating Officer, MEOrient Foreign Trade.
