Understanding Dubai: The evolving regional corporate hub
In September 2021 DLA Piper co-hosted a webinar with the US-UAE Business Council discussing the continued evolution of Dubai as a regional business hub.
Ramsey Jurdi and Natalia Tombs joined a distinguished panel of experts from Dubai Multi Commodities Center (DMCC), Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC) and Citi to discuss the UAE’s landmark announcement of 50 new economic initiatives known as the “Projects of the 50” and Dubai’s evolving business climate.
The panelists also shared thoughts on the growth of knowledge-based industries such as fintech and agtech in the UAE, comparing developments in KSA and the UAE and the impact of Chinese influence in the UAE. They also shared what they are looking forward to most as the world begins to settle into a “new normal”, with panelists citing Expo 2020 and meeting in person.
