Dubai Chamber hosts trade delegation from Belgium to discuss business ties
In attendance at the meeting were Hisham Al Shirawi, 2nd vice chairman of the Dubai Chamber; Atiq Juma Nasib, senior vice president of commercial services at the Dubai Chamber; Qaisar Hijazin, secretary general of the Arab-Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce; and 30 representatives from Belgium’s private and public sectors.
“Dubai is an ideal partner for Belgium as a re-export hub with strong links across the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia," Al Shirawi said. "The emirate offers plenty of incentives and advantages to Belgian companies, such as its ideal location, world-class infrastructure, investor-friendly business environment, and attractive free zones."
De Crem praised the Chamber for its work in enhancing cooperation between companies in the two nations. After the meeting, there were around 70 bilateral discussions held between members of the visiting delegation and representatives from the business community in Dubai. During the meetings, the parties reviewed mutual cooperation ideas and possible joint ventures.
