Professionals of Lithuanian Business Association in Dubai chaired by Povilas Gudžius have a very special week as they will participate in hosting the official visit of 15 Lithuanian companies led by President Dalia Grybauskaitė to UAE which will take place on October 29 - November 2. The prospects of business relations between Lithuania and UAE look appealing - now the annual trade turnover is 25 times higher than in 2004! If you are an attentive shopper, you can spot Lithuanian furniture, bed-clothes or mattresses in the UAE. Profiles of visiting companies range from IT solutions to energy, agriculture, construction projects management to cereal, mineral water, edible oil production. Fingers crossed, B2B meetings go well and we come across more Lithuanian products in the UAE market soon!
