Organizer: U.S. Commercial Service
Contact: Christian Koschil |

On June 10 at 8:30 am Eastern Time, the U.S. Commercial Service and Enterprise Florida will host speakers from Dubai FDI, and other Dubai Government entities for a virtual mission presentation. The complimentary webinar will focus on how Florida technology companies can use Dubai’s hub and spoke model as a launchpad to expand their U.S. exports throughout the region. With India a mere 4-hour flight away, and with sector-specific free zones permitting flexible logistics and financing options, Dubai’s global reputation as a wealth generator and investment stronghold continues to drive the city’s growth and attract both worldwide corporations and international SMEs. Now is a great time to educate yourself and learn how to take the next steps towards your Middle East growth strategies.
