In a move to promote the benefits of Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) free zone, the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) participated in the GCC Britain Expo which was held in London, UK from June 30-July 1, 2010. With a focus on facilitating bilateral trade and investment, the event was an excellent platform for DMCC to showcase its comprehensive infrastructure and a full range of facilities for the commodities sector.
At the DMCC exhibition stand, visitors had the opportunity to speak to officials about the attraction of its JLT free zone which has been equipped with state-of-the-art facilities designed to provide industry-specific support to DMCC member companies. The JLT free zone is today home to more than 2,200 local, regional and international companies.
"The UK is a valuable trade partner of the UAE and we see great potential in developing business opportunities and attracting companies from the UK," said Malcolm Wall Morris, Chief Executive Officer of DMCC. "The GCC Britain Expo was an ideal event for DMCC to engage with British companies and highlight the compelling story of Dubai and DMCC as a place to establish or expand your business."
DMCC showcased its infrastructure highlighting the free hold benefits and the dynamic community that is comprised of modern offices, spacious residences and expansive retail.
The GCC Britain Expo included over 50 companies from the Gulf region, with a full two-day seminar programme hosted by the UK Trade and Investment body covering key topics and issues. The event was also supported by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) World Chambers and The Middle East Association.
