The Department of International Trade (DIT) have put together an interactive one-day masterclass which will introduce delegates to the essential pathways for growing your business into the Gulf markets: Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait, Quatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. 

Key contacts from the Department for International Trade teams in the Gulf region will offer business in the life sciences, retail and food & drink industries guidance on the wealth of  business opportunities available in these markets.

Leading the discussions will  be Alastair Long, DIT Regional Director for Middle East, Afghanistan and Pakistan to  give an overview of the regions. There will be an opportunity to hear a case study from a business that has experienced success in the region and also cultural guidance when doing business in the Gulf countries.
