Austria’s relevance as a business partner to the UAE has grown with each passing year. From being involved in countless iconic projects such as the Burj Khalifa, floating bridge in Dubai, the Capital Gate Tower and the Louvre museum in Abu Dhabi and many others, Austria has worked alongside the UAE in developing an infrastructure and landscape that is second to none. Austrian companies and their subsidiaries have grown organically in the Middle East using the UAE as a launch pad into the greater GCC and North African frontier.
Events to be staged at the DWTC, comprising diverse sectors including construction, energy, technology, beauty, food, healthcare, environment and automotive, will mark the emirate’s post-pandemic economic recovery
