UK firms eye business opportunities at NATRANS

UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) has announced its official support of the NATRANS Arabia 2015 conference, with the aim to bolster business opportunities for British firms looking to lend their expertise to the region’s transport infrastructure projects.

Specifically looking to increase British exports to the region, UKTI works with UK based businesses to ensure their success in international markets through exports, and the NATRANS Arabia 2015 conference is already being viewed positively by locally based UK businesses.

“The goal of UKTI is to increase and support British export. We have had a lot of success in the region and UK companies are heavily involved in a wide variety of transportation projects across the Gulf and Middle East,” said Mike Shears, UKTI Specialist, UK Trade and Investment.

“Much of the region’s activity has been centered around Dubai, which is one of the most dynamic destinations in terms of implementing new public transport systems, and Abu Dhabi is also moving towards becoming a major player with its own operational rail system as well as plans to introduce an integrated mass transportation system with buses, light rail and metro,” he added.

Shears also cited the Etihad Rail project and the mid-2015 announcement of Dubai’s Route 2020 project, which encompasses seven new metro stations and an extension for the Expo 2020 site attracting international contractor and supplier interest.

The NATRANS Arabia 2015 conference, which will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 25 to 27 October, 2015.
