Deepening Economic Ties: An Exploration of Expanding Trade and Investment Cooperation between Dubai and Mexico


Dubai and Mexico to Enhance Trade, Investment Cooperation

The ongoing expansion of business relationships between Dubai and Mexico has taken a significant step forward with the recent developments spearheaded by the Dubai Chambers. The establishment of a Mexico Business Council under the Dubai Chamber of Commerce marks an important milestone in the deepening economic ties between the two regions.

As of the first quarter of 2024, Dubai has seen a noteworthy increase in Mexican companies engaging in its market, with 108 Mexican companies being registered members of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce. This uptick reflects Dubai’s growing appeal as a prime destination for international investors and businesses looking to leverage the emirate’s strategic position in global trade.

The Mexico Business Council recently held its inaugural Annual General Meeting at the Dubai Chambers’ headquarters, setting a foundation for their objectives. Key among these objectives is the endeavour to bolster economic relations between Dubai and Mexico by fostering partnerships that are mutually beneficial. The council also laid out a schedule of events aimed at promoting engagement and cooperation in the months to come.

Maha Al Gargawi, Vice President of Business Advocacy at Dubai Chambers, expressed the organization’s dedication to empowering Business Councils. Their goal is to amplify promising opportunities between Dubai’s private sector and global business communities. Al Gargawi emphasized the commitment to enhancing economic and investment partnerships across all sectors to reinforce Dubai’s status as a distinguished global business hub.

The Business Councils, under the umbrella of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce, serve to represent interests of companies and investors from specific countries operating in Dubai. Through partnerships with the Chamber, these councils play a pivotal role in promoting sustainable growth in bilateral trade and investment between Dubai and the markets they represent.

Part of the broader vision of Dubai Chambers includes expanding the number of Business Councils. This expansion aligns with the objectives of the Dubai Economic Agenda (D33), which focuses on driving growth in foreign trade and assisting the expansion of local companies into global markets. Dubai Chambers stands as a testament to Dubai’s global vision by empowering businesses with innovative services and providing access to influential networks.

The restructuring and formation of three distinct chambers: Dubai Chamber of Commerce, Dubai International Chamber, and Dubai Chamber of Digital Economy by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum in March 2021, have further streamlined the efforts to promote Dubai as a global leader in commerce and digital economy.

Furthermore, the Dubai Chamber of Commerce continues to play a crucial role in convening the private sector through the organization of roundtable meetings for Business Groups and Councils. These meetings offer a valuable platform for discussing economic growth opportunities and emerging prospects across various industries. During the first quarter of 2024 alone, the Chamber hosted numerous meetings, including the inaugural annual general meetings for the Polish and Qazaqstan Business Councils, and reviewed several laws in cooperation with Business Groups to enhance the competitiveness and performance of local companies in the global economic landscape.

The involvement of Business Groups and Business Councils ensures the representation of a diverse array of business and economic sectors. These entities are instrumental in facilitating productive dialogue between private sector stakeholders and government entities, ultimately contributing to the thriving business environment and economic development in Dubai.
