Dubai Chambers recently announced the establishment of its new global office in Hong Kong, to drive mutual economic and business growth and enhance trade ties between Dubai and Hong Kong.

Industry sources added that the announcement was made on the sidelines of the UAE-Hong Kong Business Forum, which took place yesterday in Dubai with the attendance of a high-level delegation from Hong Kong, led by Honourable John Lee, the city’s Chief Executive, and several UAE government and business leaders including H.E. Dr. Thani bin Ahmed Al Zeyoudi, UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Trade, H.E. Abdul Aziz Abdulla Al Ghurair, Chairman of Dubai Chambers, H.E. Sultan Bin Sulayem, Chairman of Dubai International Chamber, H.E. Faisal Juma Khalfan Belhoul, Vice Chairman of Dubai Chambers and Mohammad Ali Rashed Lootah, President & CEO of Dubai Chambers.

Industry sources further confirmed that the latest office comes in line with the ‘Dubai Global’ initiative launched by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council to establish 50 representative offices for Dubai in five continents by 2030. Dubai Global, led by Dubai International Chamber, aims to attract foreign MNCs, SMEs, investors, and international talent to Dubai by showcasing the emirate’s competitive advantages, sharing investment intelligence, and engaging with overseas stakeholders.

Industry sources further added that the office will promote trade from Hong Kong to Dubai and attract more Hong Kong businesses to the emirate while also expanding Dubai’s Asia Pacific presence. It will collaborate with Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and other government and private sector entities to leverage the exciting growth of Dubai and Hong Kong economies.
