A trade mission from Palestine, comprising senior business executives and 21 startups, was met with great interest in Dubai.

The guests were part of the first-ever business matching meeting between Dubai and Palestine organized by the Dubai Chamber of Digital Economy with an aim to explore trade deals while also presenting the city's vibrant digital economy.

The trade mission from Palestine had one of the highest numbers of bilateral meetings, with a total of 237 meetings organized, and an average of ten per delegate. Participants at the event included Hashim Shawa, Chairman of Bank of Palestine Group, Linda Tarzi, Board Member at Bank of Palestine Group, Kamel Husseini, Chief Strategic Relations and Engagements Officer of Bank of Palestine; and Rateb Rabi, Chief Executive Officer of Intersect Innovation Hub.

"Today's event underlines our commitment as a chamber to not only attract and encourage foreign startups to trade with our members and companies in Dubai, but also to enable them to understand what attracts international players to our city," says Mohammad Ali Rashed Lootah, President and CEO of Dubai Chambers. "We have a mandate, backed by several government strategies including the Digital Economy Strategy, the Metaverse Strategy, and the D33 Economic Agenda, to help international startups gain a foothold in Dubai and enjoy all the benefits of a truly 21st century economy."

Dubai has been dubbed the Middle East's most vibrant digital economy, with analysts agreeing on a forecast of 3-4% economic growth in the UAE's national gross domestic product in 2023.
