Trade Mission Seeks to Deepen Business Ties with Senegal and Morocco

The Dubai International Chamber (DIC), a key player under the Dubai Chambers umbrella, is gearing up for a vital trade mission to Senegal and Morocco scheduled for June 3rd to 7th. This African roadshow falls under the chamber's "New Horizons" initiative, specifically designed to empower Dubai-based businesses to expand into promising global markets.

The mission prioritizes facilitating meetings between Dubai businesses and key stakeholders in both Senegal and Morocco. These interactions aim to foster a platform for exploring collaborative ventures, business expansion opportunities, and the potential for establishing new trade and investment agreements. Representatives attending the mission recently received briefings on the specifics of the trip, along with comprehensive market intelligence reports and economic data for both target countries.

"Our primary objective, " stated Mohammad Ali Rashed Lootah, President and CEO of Dubai Chambers, "is to bolster the competitive edge of the local private sector within international markets. This mission unlocks access to lucrative prospects for Dubai-based companies, not just regionally but internationally as well. "

The focus on Senegal and Morocco aligns with Dubai's strategic vision to forge stronger economic ties with Africa, a continent brimming with fast-growing economies and immense potential for private sector engagement. The DIC has already taken proactive steps by organizing trade missions and events that cater specifically to Dubai businesses seeking entry into African markets.

An earlier initiative, the Morocco and Senegal "In Focus" event, aimed to connect Dubai-based companies with influential figures from both African nations. This event served to highlight business and investment opportunities, while also showcasing the extensive support offered by the DIC to businesses aiming to establish a foothold in these key African markets. Through "In Focus, " the DIC identified high-potential import sectors in Morocco, including aluminum and fruits and nuts. Additionally, the chamber pinpointed agriculture, aquaculture, fishing, and tourism as sectors ripe for investment in Senegal.

The forthcoming trade mission to Senegal and Morocco signifies a significant step forward in the "New Horizons" initiative. By facilitating targeted interactions between businesses and key decision-makers, the DIC is actively working towards solidifying Dubai's position as a vital trade and commerce hub, not just within the region but on a global scale. This strategic move strengthens Dubai's economic ties with Africa, a continent brimming with potential for mutually beneficial partnerships.
