Ms. Nilgün Emrem; Board Member of Turkish Business Council Board, who states that they are impressed with the projects carried out by BTSO delivered a speech for Companies of Bursa about the issues to be paid attention while getting into Dubai markets. Ms. Emrem indicated that Dubai has an important infrastructure in sectors such as tourism, retail, finance and construction says: “Because most of the population comes from other countries, Dubai has a qualified workforce. Because of the tax advantages, 250 of the 500 largest companies in the world have head offices here. You can trade without the need of a local partner through established free zones. In Dubai, companies can do business in this area by obtaining licenses from their chosen fields of activity. So our firms that want to do business in Dubai should work well in their courses before entering the market.”

In this sense, I think that the companies that make this business trip have had important gains. Besides our fair visit, we also had the opportunity to establish new connections with our companies through B2B meetings. I believe that these first steps will be transformed into concrete partnerships in the future.
