The Trade Council

Welcome to The Trade Council in the Royal Danish Consulate General in Dubai. Here, we work to promote Danish exports and business interests in the UAE and to foster long lasting partnerships and business relations between Denmark and the UAE.

The main task of The Trade Council in The United Arab Emirates is to support Danish companies with export, investment and partnership activities in the United Arab Emirates and the wider Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. 

We have built a diverse and comprehensive network of relevant contacts within a broad range of sectors and markets as well as governments and diplomatic channels. Hence, the Consulate General is ready to assist you with strategic advice and valuable insights of the Middle Eastern business and political praxis. In The Trade Council, we operate on a regional level with a network of sector-specialized trade advisors that are stationed in other Danish missions in MENA. We are therefore ready to assist you with exporting-related activities both locally in the UAE and in other parts of the MENA-region as well.

The Consulate General cooperates closely with the Embassy in Abu Dhabi which makes it possible to draw on the political expertise and many high level contacts of the Embassy. This substantially increases the leverage of the Consulate General when assisting Danish companies in solving difficult and/or complicated situations.

The Consulate General offers the whole Trade Council range of services from market surveys and feasibility studies, to partner searches, alliance building and strategic sparring including development of regional strategies. The combination of business know how, in-depth knowledge of local conditions and the prestige of the Danish Diplomatic missions makes the Consulate General in Dubai and the Embassy in Abu Dhabi ideal partners for Danish companies seeking to start or expand their activities in the area.
