20 Oct - 21 Oct Sofitel Dubai Downtown, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Middle East & Africa Summit 2015

The Middle & North Africa Summit has grown and become the Middle East & Africa Summit! This biennial event is Sweden’s largest business convention for all Swedish export promotion stakeholders in the region. Guests of honor at Middle East & Africa Summit 2015 are H.E. Eng. Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri, UAE Minister of Economy, H.E. Abdullah Al Saleh, Undersecretary to UAE Minister of Economy and H.E. Mikael Damberg, Sweden’s Minister for Enterprise & Innovation.

The Middle East & Africa Summit 2015 offers you a unique opportunity to meet with regional stakeholders and decision-makers, Swedish ambassadors and trade commissioners as well as with Swedish private sector representatives that are active in the region. Apart from increasing your knowledge on topical issues and different business sectors, this two day event offers numerous opportunities for networking and discussions on how to promote your business in the region. 

“The concept of a ‘region’ is changing, from a self-contained, well-defined geographical area, to trade nodes and hubs, directing flows and connecting markets. Dubai’s importance, as illustrated by its successful Expo2020 bid, is thus far greater than its objective size or its home market. Dubai is a lab and a springboard for Middle East and Africa business”, says H.E. Jan Thesleff, Ambassador of Sweden to the UAE.   

Middle East & Africa Summit 2015 is arranged by Business Sweden, in co-operation with the Embassy of Sweden in UAE and other Swedish Embassies in the Middle East and Africa. 

Speakers at the Middle East & Africa Summit 2015 include:

  • H.E. Eng. Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri, UAE Minister of Economy
  • H.E. Mikael Damberg, Sweden’s Minister for Enterprise and Innovation
  • Mrs. Ylva Berg, CEO of Business Sweden
  • Mr. Trita Parsi, Founder and President of National Iranian American Council,
