Dear reader

A warm welcome to our website. I hope you will find it both interesting and informative.

The United Arab Emirates is a modern country with a burgeoning economy. The oil and gas sectors continue to be important to the UAE economy. In addition, many resources are invested in sustainable energy, education, infrastructure, health care and culture.

The UAE is thus an attractive business partner for many Danish companies. At the same time the country is a valued political partner that aims for peace and stability in the region and provides development assistance to countries around the world.

The Danish missions in the UAE work as one team and aim to maintain and further develop the relations, which so happily exist between the UAE and Denmark in business as well as at government level.

The Embassy in Abu Dhabi primarily deals with Economic, Political and Defense matters. At the Consulate General in Dubai you will find our Consular Section and Trade Council.

With hopes that this website will provide you with the information you are looking for.
