RETHINK GULF - To Africa through Arabia?

ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA, the Foreign Trade Promotion Organization of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKOE) with its offices in Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Teheran, Amman, Muscat, Doha, Nairobi, Johannesburg and Kairo have organized the 7th edition networking conference on the 20th November 2016, at Raffels Hotel's Ballroom, from 9:30 am-5.00pm graced thereafter with an evening reception.

"Rethink GCC - to Africa through Arabia?" is the theme of this year's conference focusing on the latest economic developments and showcasing projects in the region. Increasing investments from the GCC countries in Africa's developing regions and the hub function the UAE has played, will be highlighted. Austrian subsidiaries in the Gulf will give an insight into their own activities and approaches towards the upcoming powerhouse – Africa.

Austrian companies, subsidiaries, regional representatives and importers of Austrian products and related entities and business units are invited to participate in this conference. We offer a platform to think tanks, industry experts and market analysts to share their thoughts regarding means and ways to further integrate Austrian products and services in the regional production process. Companies can discuss opportunities and express concerns, gain knowledge of untrodden markets and search for new business partners.

The day will wind up with an exclusive Networking cruise at the Dubai Marina with the courtesy of the KLEINDIENST GROUP - Mr. Josef Kleindienst, the Vice President of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, HE Matthias Krenn, the Austrian Commercial Counsellor Mr. Richard Bandera and with participation of the Austrian Ambassador to Abu Dhabi Dr. Andreas Liebmann-Holzmann. Meet the experts and network with the Austrian business community throughout the evening!
