Market Entry in The UAE

>> Key Markets and Trade in The UAE

Crucially, the UAE’s geographical position make it an ideal hub to trade within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

The major trading partners of the UAE include the European Union (with 27 member states), India, Japan, China, South Korea, United States of America, Thailand, Singapore and Oman. There are currently limited trade links with the Levant and Iran due to political instability (war in Syria) and the US extant Trade Sanctions against Iran.

However, you will find many Lebanese Arabs working in the UAE and Iranians are the second largest property holders in Dubai.
