United Arab Emirates is usually thought of as a place to which to export goods and services. However, Dubai and Sharjah have economies that are not wholly reliant on oil. In fact, they even have manufacturing companies, for example in FMCG (fast moving consumer goods), perfumes, luxury retail items succh watches, lubricants and glass. There is also a well-developed hospitality service sector for the many hotels and restaurants. And, of course, Dubai is a major financial centre. All of these businesses have the potential for export to Russia or investment in Russia.
Every year, Dubai hosts Gulfood 2015, one of the largest food industry trade shows in the world. During the week of Gulfood 2015, Volga Trader will be offering two free workshops on the changing opportunities in Russia to Dubai companies. One will be focused on the food industry and the other will be focused on the other export orientated businesses that can be found in Dubai. The food industry workshop will be on Tuesday the 10th, the general workshop on Wednesday, 11 February in both cases at the Traders Hotel at 6 PM, subject to confirmation. Contact Volga Trader on to make a booking, including your mobile phone number so that we can update you about venue and time changes.
