UAE – Latin America Business Roundtable

The UAE and Latin America are continents apart, but distance has proven to be no hurdle when it comes to forging close links between the golden country and its far-flung South American friends. Both nations have continually taken restorative steps to deepen investment, trade, cultural, and diplomatic cooperation. With the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industries opening its third office in Sao Paulo, regular hosting of prestigious business summits and, most importantly, the burgeoning industry-specific Free Zones (SEZs) in Dubai; have made the UAE one of the most attractive regions for today’s nomadic entrepreneurs to establish their business.

Join us for the UAE-LATAM Business Roundtable with Rafael Solimeo, Director, Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce, Carlos Salas, Trade Commissioner of Chile in the UAE, and Manuel A.Gonzalez, Former Minister, FFAA Costa Rica, to discuss more on the various areas of trade cooperation between UAE and Latin America, potential investment opportunities for businesses, and exploring the industries that are the driving force between Latin American countries and the UAE.
