Dubai, UAE, 15 February 2015 - The Dubai Business Women Council (DBWC) today hosted a delegation of business women from the United Kingdom, following the DBWC’s earlier visit to the UK last May during a trade mission.
The delegation discussed various business opportunities available in the UK while the UK Trade and Investment team in Dubai will host the delegation at various events and meetings throughout Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi until the 17th February.
“Opportunities like these give our members an opportunity to engage with likeminded businesswomen from other parts of the world who represent diverse businesses in multi-sectorial industries, said Mrs. Raja Al Gurg, President of DBWC. “This encourages and paves the way for bilateral trade and partnership opportunities between Dubai and the UK and we are very fortunate to continue strengthening our evolving relationship through initiatives like these.”
The delegation was led by Teresa Tideman, CEO of Jacques Vert, a British women’s occasion wear retailer, which is opening a store in Dubai later in February, along with Karen Williams, Deputy Director-UKTI Dubai and Sunita Mirchandani, Trade Adviser, Education Sector - UKTI Dubai.
