Dubai Chamber seminar examines global trade trends and market opportunities
• Business seminar sheds lights on key economic trends expected to reshape global trading landscape in 2020
• Presentations identified high-potential market opportunities for Dubai-based businesses in ASEAN and African countries
 
 
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, December 12, 2019:    Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry hosted a seminar at its headquarters earlier today which identified key economic trends expected to reshape the global economy and trade landscape in 2020, as well as market opportunities offering the most potential for businesses in Dubai.
 
The seminar examined key factors and developments affecting global trade growth in 2019 and highlighted the need for Dubai-based traders to further diversify exports and focus on markets beyond the MENA region.
 
An informative presentation provided an overview of trade and investment opportunities emerging in ASEAN countries and pointed to fast-growing populations and the adoption of new technologies as key factors fuelling growth momentum behind economies in the region. Singapore, Indonesia, Cambodia, Thailand and Malaysia were identified as the top ASEAN for Dubai exporters. The establishment of more flight routes between the UAE and Southeast Asia in the future is expected to boost bilateral trade flows and bring down the cost of trading, making ASEAN markets more attractive to exporters in Dubai.
 
A second presentation provided insights on the value of Dubai’s exports to Africa remains which is currently far below its full potential. Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania, Egypt and Senegal were named as the top African markets for Dubai exporters, as these countries offer vast business opportunities for traders, logistics companies and insurance firms in the emirate.
 
In addition, the presentation touched on the potential positive impact of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) will have on Africa’s trade with the rest of the world in 2020. The expansion of direct flights between African countries and the UAE has played a crucial role in expanding bilateral trade in recent years, the presentation noted, adding that improving connectivity further would encourage more Dubai-based business to explore business opportunities emerging across the continent. 
 
“In today’s fast-changing business world, it has never been more important for companies to stay informed about key trends reshaping the global economy and position themselves to maintain their competitive edge. By organising this seminar, we aim to provide our members with valuable market intelligence, helping them make more informed business decisions and explore global expansion opportunities, “said Dr. Belaid Rettab, Senior Director, Economic Research and Sustainable Business Development Sector, Dubai Chamber, explained during the seminar. 
 
He noted that shifting trade patterns, growing uncertainty and other challenges impacted the global trade landscape in 2019, but also pointed out that there are several emerging markets offering plenty of attractive business opportunities which Dubai-based businesses can benefit from.
