Access exciting business opportunities & partnerships in a lucrative, growing market

The Toronto Region Board of Trade is a trusted partner of ours. We support their efforts to be a catalyst for the region's business community and as a member of our network, we are connecting with you about this unique opportunity to be part of a trade mission to the United Arab Emirates.

World Trade Centre-Toronto (WTC-C), an international business resource that provides comprehensive international trade services and key global contacts to support global trade and business throughout the Toronto region.

The Board has invited Her Worship, Linda Jeffrey, Mayor of Brampton, to lead this mission. Focused on business development and trade in the health and life sciences sector, this mission aims to foster strong bilateral trade and investment between the GTHA and the UAE.

Why UAE?

  • A recent report from Al Masah Capital Research predicts that the healthcare sector in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region will be worth $144 billion by 2020, significantly higher than the $81.1 billion recorded in 2011, for a CAGR of 6.6 percent during the interval period.
  • Deloitte's Healthcare Outlook 2015 Report credits the UAE with rapidly growing populations and per capita incomes, rising life expectancies, a high incidence of lifestyle-related diseases, and ambitious medical infrastructure projects are driving health care industry growth in the Middle East.
  • Dubai boasts advanced infrastructure, facilities, regulatory processes and the implementation of international best practice and standards for patient care. This has helped the Emirates secure a pioneering position in diagnostics and treatment in a wide range of differing medical areas.

Mission Highlights

  • Network at the Arab Health Exhibition & Congress: the largest global business gathering of healthcare and trade professionals in the Middle East, network with more than 4,000 of the world's leading healthcare organizations coming in from 70 countries.
  • Develop market opportunities with UAE Businesses: based on your business objectives WTC-T will set-up meetings with potential clients, experts and officials from the UAE and around the world, opening doors to new ideas and markets.
  • Learn firsthand, where opportunities exist in this lucrative market: tour top medical facilities with industry experts in the MENA region for an in-depth look at operations, processes and daily business activities.

The mission is ideal for those in the healthcare industry - from pharma, med-tech laboratories and hospitals to government authorities and medical distributors.

Our vision is to make Toronto one of the most competitive and sought after business regions in the world. We are focused on achieving this through the strategic lenses of trade, transportation and talent. Our trade efforts are taking shape though World Trade Centre-Toronto (WTC-C), an international business entity offering comprehensive trade services and key contacts to support global trade and business throughout the Toronto region.
