This is the third delegation that the Council have brought to the UAE since 2019 and the first under the oil and gas theme. Our previous delegation came to UAE in March in conjunction with EXPO2020 and was a collaboration with Singapore Indian Chamber, Singapore Malay Chamber and SGTech covering the IT and F&B sectors. We look forward to bring more Singapore companies in the future so that they can see and experience for themselves the beauty and the bountiful opportunities of the UAE.
The Council would like to express our deepest appreciation to all the UAE government agencies and companies in Abu Dhabi, Fujairah, Sharjah and Dubai who have kindly hosted or met with the delegation.
The Council would also like to thank SBF and ASPRI leadership and staff for what has been a fruitful and eventful collaboration. Last but not least, we would like to sincerely thanks to all of our delegates in this mission and hope that they have benefitted from all the visits, face to face introductions and link ups we have scheduled for them and also look forward to help them in their next step in exploring the UAE market.
