The UAE is considered a central business hub of the Gulf countries, Iran, South Asia and East Africa. The United Arab Emirates mainly imports machinery, transport equipment, chemical products and food stuffs. Imports reached 230,000 million USD in 2015 according to the WTO figures.

The UAE is among the world’s most dynamic markets in terms of foreign trade.  It is the first WTO member from the Arab region to ratify the new Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA) in April 2016. Implementation of this agreement has the potential to increase global merchandise exports by up to $1 trillion per annum, according to the WTO’s flagship World Trade Report released on 26 October 2015.  Significantly, the Report also found that developing countries will benefit significantly from the TFA, capturing more than half of the available gains.

Consumers are very interested in new technologies and products, brands are also important, particularly in fashion, luxury product and cosmetics. This trade show brings global consumer firms to the region with all their new and trendy offer,” concluded Khanna.

Al Fajer Information & Services (AFIS), a unit of Al Fajer Enterprises - a fully nationally owned company was established in the year 1970. Its core activity is articulated around organizing exhibitions and shows, as it has a direct impact on the host country’s economy and it facilitates a highly targeted interface with customers by developing a two way communication channel.
