Over the past few decades, the UAE has demonstrated impeccable growth and development on different levels, and looking at Dubai in particular, the economic diversification achieved today is outstanding. We are proud to be collaborating with the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, whose role in this development has been vital, and we look forward to commencing our series of seminars that will enable us to pass our knowledge onto the young business community in the UAE.”
