Dubai Wood Show region demands and expectations


According to the International Trade Centre, in 2010 the UAE was among the top 30 timber and wood importers in the world. During 2011, UAE imported $708.9 million worth of timber and wood products and during the same period, the re-exports of this commodity amounted to $150.8 million. 


According to the statistics from the department of Dubai Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation, imports and re-exports of all types of timber into the region are at an all time high – a demand that has increased the need for specialist woodworking machinery and tools.

This year, Dubai Wood Show is looking to involve more entities to be part of this network to strengthen the commitment the show has with the wood sector in Middle East. For this purpose, the show presents the initiative to promote wood as a construction and decorative material in GCC for interiors and exteriors.

A seminar will be organised as part of this initiative to approach the main topics relating to construction and design.  The seminar aims to involve architects, contractors, investors and developers in the initiative to bolster the use of wood and discuss the use of wood in the GCC and the ongoing projects in UAE.

The seminar is addressed for individuals involved in the industry to ensure that the trading of wood products is from a known source, minimising the risk of buying illegal timber.

The programme for an accompanying seminar will be announced shortly by the event’s organisers Strategic Marketing & Exhibitions.

Annual Investment Meeting to host international economic landscape

Dubai, United Arab Emirates; 21 January 2013 – Top-level government officials representing more than 80 countries are expected to attend the Third Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) Congress 2013 in Dubai to define the future economic landscape for frontier and emerging markets.

The third edition of AIM, organised by the UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Trade and held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Mohamed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum UAE Vice president, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai will provide a comprehensive and genuine assessment of investment opportunities in frontier, emerging and transition economies with a special focus on some high growth regions such as Africa and Asia as well as the Middle East and North Africa; and in particular the United Arab Emirates, which has become a regional economic powerhouse.

With the theme “A Future International Economic Landscape in the making, implications on FDI Growth in Frontier and Emerging Countries”, AIM Congress 2013 hopes to facilitate discussions and direct action plans that will further boost trade activities in and among developing economies through unrivalled conference and country presentations as well as panel discussions; in addition to B2B meetings and a plethora of other networking opportunities.

The keynote address will be delivered by Karl Sauvant, Resident Senior Fellow, Vale Columbia Center on Sustainable International Investment, and former Director of the UNCTAD Investment Division.

“The conference will provide, not only an in-depth analysis of global trade and investment trends and major policy developments therein, but it will also feature a series of sessions focusing on policy responses to reignite growth, foreign investment policies, strategies and objectives of sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) and fiscal policies and investment incentives in a fiercely competitive world,” said HE Sheikha Lubna Bint Khalid Al Qasimi, Minister of Foreign Trade, UAE. “While the world continues to grapple with one of the most severe economic crisis, with high unemployment rates, mounting sovereign debt and limited economic growth in mature markets, emerging and frontier markets continue to grow and are leading the FDI recovery.”
