The British Business Group (BBG) Joint Committee in conjunction with UKTI cordially invites you to the Regal Ballroom at St Regis, Saadiyat Island, Abu Dhabi on Tuesday, 15th May 2012, @ 9am
The Joint Committee of the British Business Groups in the UAE (Abu Dhabi and Dubai), with the support of UKTI, is engaged in initiatives designed to promote opportunities for British business in the wider Middle East/Africa Region.
This Iraqi Event is one such initiative of the Joint Committee, which was established last year with the encouragement of British and UAE Government and business interests. These interests recognise that the UAE is a point of entry to a very large market and that many UAE-based companies have a remit to exploit that market from here. The conference will enable businesses to learn about the opportunities from those with the knowledge.
The conference will be opened by H.E. Dominic Jermey, the British Ambassador. Others will address the business opportunities available in Iraq, covering Irbil, Baghdad and Basra, and how to take advantage of them.
Speakers will include Iraq-based representatives of UKTI, lawyers, bankers, security consultants and other professionals with direct experience of business in Iraq and, it is hoped, representatives of the Iraqi administration. There will also be a panel discussion with companies already doing business in Iraq.
After lunch there will be the opportunity for one to one sessions with the speakers and panel members.
