The Dubai Advantage Webinar Series

FOOD & AGRI BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES

The Australian Business Council Dubai (ABC Dubai) in conjunction with the Australia Arab Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AACCI) and there delighted to jointly host a four-webinar series with Dubai FDI and sector focused free zones covering Food & Agribusiness, Logistics, Health and Technology. 

With a population of 10 million and growing, the UAE is the leading food consumer within the GCC. Apart from its strong macroeconomic and demographic factors, tourism plays a vital role in boosting food consumption, with the highest inflow of tourists among all GCC countries. Currently the desert Gulf Arab states rely on food imports for 80-90% of local demand and have invested billions of dollars on agricultural ventures outside their borders.

The continued challenge to secure and create sustainable food sources combined with future and growing health trends drives the quest for new technological solutions that support farming in arid climates, enable efficient irrigation and promote local organic food production.

In addition, the UAE’s strategic location and strong logistics sector are a significant link in the region’s food chain. The country has become the world’s third largest re-exporter of food.

Many distributors and retail chains operate in the wider region and use the UAE with its excellent logistics and warehousing as a base for re-exports, thereby offering additional value add and sales opportunities to international suppliers.

To find out more about the exciting opportunities within this sector join us at 10am, Tuesday 9th June when we will hear from:

  • H.E. Mr Ian Halliday Consul-General Dubai, Austrade General Manager - Middle East, Africa and Turkey
  • H.E. Mr Fahad Al Gergawi, CEO Dubai FDI
  • H.E. Mr Saed Al Awadi, CEO Dubai Exports 
  • Ms. Hanan Ali Dawood, Head of the Food Products Registration and Evaluation Dubai Municipality
