International Trade – February 2016

You are here


The British Centres for Business in Dubai is a member of the Overseas Business Network Initiative, created by the British Chambers of Commerce and UK Trade & Investment, working together to create an international business network, providing practical support for UK exporters.

The BCB was established in 2014 in partnership with Dubai Government to provide operational support and market entry services in the UAE to British companies.

We have developed a unique platform that allows British firms quick, cost-effective and efficient market entry. This enables them to operate, fully licensed, under our aegis for a maximum of 24 months whilst they pursue business development opportunities and better understand their companies’ long-term corporate positioning in the region.

To date, we have helped over 1160 companies with their export enquiries and supported 19 UK companies to set up in the UAE through our unique incubation scheme. We have also worked on 32 Trade Services (equivalent to the UKTI’s OMIS) projects providing dedicated market research and in-market programme arranging support.

In fact, our very first client to graduate from the incubation scheme is a Hampshire-based company, Mary Gober International, experts in the field of employee engagement, business relationships and customer satisfaction.
