The UAE UK Business Council (UUBC) is the premier business-led organization dedicated to facilitating greater trade and investment between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the United Kingdom (UK). The UAE and the UK have a long-standing historical relationship. The cooperation agreements in place between our 2 countries reflects the depth and strength of these relationships. The UUBC uses the networks created by this long-standing relationship to provide its members with access to senior decision makers in business and government and aim to strengthen bilateral trade and investment.
We have 5 working groups that take forward the ideas and suggestions of the Business Council and provide a voice to companies, not on the Business Council.
Our Members include large corporate companies, SMEs, Government representatives, Institutions and Business Organisations.
We met for the first time in 2011 and have met twice a year ever since, alternating between the UAE and the UK, with the aim of increasing bilateral trade.
