French major companies and SMEs, local partners and authorities as well as international VIP guests recently gathered at an annual gala dinner hosted by the French Business Council in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.
Featuring the theme, 'So French, So Creative!' the evening was an occasion to highlight the innovation and creativity of France throughout the world, especially in Dubai.
Michel Miraillet, Ambassador of France to the UAE, highlighted the strong synergies between both countries: "When it comes to creativity, Dubai knows what it's doing. Having risen from the desert in the space of a few decades, this metropolis was built on the vision, audacity and courage of a handful of visionaries and the leadership of His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, continuously driving initiatives. The emirates represents our most important trade outlet in the Gulf and our fourth highest export worldwide. France as we see it in Dubai is dynamic, ambitious, with a conquering spirit, diverse and creative."
The international campaign launched by the French government, CREATIVE FRANCE was part of the evening to strengthen perceptions towards France and create positive conditions for French economic development. Creative France was a partner of the French Business Council Gala to send out a strong and clear message: France is a global leader of creativity.
