World Chambers Congress in Dubai opens up opportunities for Monaco
Guillaume Rose and Justin Highman, respectively Executive Director and Deputy Managing Director of the Monaco Economic Board (MEB), participated from November 23 to 25 in the 12th World Chambers Congress which brought together chambers of commerce from around the world in Dubai. It was an excellent opportunity to strengthen many contacts. This trip was also used to prepare the future economic mission there which will take place from January 25 to 29, 2022.
World Chamber Congress
Organized by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the World Chambers Congress is a biennial event that brings together more than 100 chambers of commerce from around the world and more than 1200 participants on site or in virtual. As a reminder, the MEB is a member of the ICC as the Monaco Chamber of Commerce and also has the Monegasque National Committee within this organization.
There were many opportunities to meet international counterparts from Monaco, including representatives of Russian chambers of commerce (Moscow, Saint Petersburg and Kazan), Serbia, France, Belgium, etc.
Kevin Hin, former President of the Junior Economic Chamber of Monaco and current Secretary General of the Young International Chambers of Commerce, attended the meeting.
Dubai and Gulf countries missions in January 2022
At the same time, as part of the preparations for the on-site mission from January 25 to 29, everything has been thought out to allow Monegasque companies to develop their business with the Gulf countries and associated institutions including:
– the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry;
– the Dubai Multi Commodities Center, the first free zone in the Emirates;
– the companies Equiom, Altiqa, Three Towers and Key Strategies, specializing in international business development and all based in Monaco and Dubai;
– the economic authorities of the different states making up the United Arab Emirates;
– the management of the Monegasque pavilion in Dubai and in particular Mr. Albert Croesi.
Appointments have been made with everyone with a view to meetings which will alternate with the major economic players in the Gulf region and events around the Monegasque pavilion at the 2020 Dubai World Expo.
Exceptionally, at the request of Emirati interlocutors, particularly interested in the prospect of making contact with delegations of Monegasque companies, a webinar will be organized to present the companies to the various Emirati institutions so that they can connect easily and with the most relevant interlocutors with meeting the needs of their businesses.
Finally, the icing on the cake, many expatriate members of the Principality and residing in Dubai will be involved in the mission of January 2022.
