The companies, which are prime examples of the best Wales has to offer from across the energy, engineering and manufacturing sectors, will be taking part in theAbu DhabiInternational Petroleum Exhibition & Conference (ADIPEC) 2020. This year, to minimise attendees' risk of contracting COVID-19, the companies will be able to attend remotely via the conference's virtual platform.

ADIPEC is taking place from November 9 - 12 and this year's theme is energy transition.

Strengthening ties

The Welsh Government has had a presence in the UAE since 2004, when it opened a permanent office at the British Embassy in Dubai. Its remit is to promote Wales and represent the nation's trade interests across the whole Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

The importance of the MENA Office's operation has been underlined by the high value of Welsh exports to the markets it oversees.Between 2013 and 2019, exports of goods from Wales to the region reached a cumulative total of 6.7 billion, while the UAE is the eighth largest global export market for Wales.

About Wales

Wales is a self-governing constituent country of the UK and the Welsh Government is the devolved Government for Wales. Devolved since 1999, the Welsh Government's decision-making powers within a small and joined-up country mean we can cut red-tape and act fast. They also mean we are responsible for our own economic development, so you won't find a more pro-business Government anywhere. Wales has a strong industrial heritage that has shaped our confident, creative and ambitious economy of today.

We have strength in depth in high value manufacturing, food and drink, technology, life sciences, consumer products and clean energy.

Our commitment to sell Wales to the world has never been more focussed and this market visit provides an ideal platform for us to build on established links and to discuss future export opportunities.

This is Export. This is Wales.
