The relationship between UAE and UK
For the past decade, trade between the UAE and UK has steadily increased, strengthening the valuable relationship between the two countries thereby leading to immense growth opportunities. UAE and UK aim to double trade to £25 billion by 2020. During 2016, UAE imported $9 billion which is 2.2% of the total UK exports during 2016 and ranks 14 among the top trading partners in terms of export sales. The UAE-UK Business Council, which was created in 2011, took the lead in working towards this target. The Business Council’s mission is to increase bilateral trade and investment and to help and encourage UK companies do business in the UAE and vice versa, and to identify opportunities for UK/UAE cooperation in third markets. The UAE is your ideal destination when you decide to expand horizons for your business.

The relationship between UAE and BRAZIL
At first glance the UAE and Brazil don’t exactly look like a perfect couple. For starters, the two counties are thousands of miles apart and everything from their histories to landscapes are polarized. But insights from commercial standpoints reveal that when it comes to business relationships, the two economically expanding countries have many favorable points.
The Brazilian policy of rapprochement has led to strong and deep trade relations with the Middle Eastern countries, especially the UAE.
The trade relationship between Brazil and the UAE boosted the economies of both countries through multiple segments. Brazil’s investments in the UAE are numerous – food products and tobacco come first, followed by consumer goods, aerospace, real estate services and financial services. The largest Brazilian investor is BRF Brasil Foods. On the other hand, UAE investments in Brazil are concentrated particularly in storage, financial services, transportation, metals, hotels and tourism. The largest Emirati investor is DP World.
In this symbiotic trade context, CBS has formed a strategic partnership with CS Partners – a prospering business boutique in Brazil – to span territories across South America, understanding the continent’s business experience, and to expand the TCG footprint worldwide. CS Partners is a business boutique co-founded by Luís Antonio Scaglianti and Oestes Marques Costa junior. The founders decided to put together their extensive and multiple professional experiences to aid small and medium-sized entrepreneurs make projects viable in various economic segments.

The relationship between UAE and Germany
Being the fourth largest exporter to the UAE, and the 25th largest recipient of UAE re-exports, Germany keeps capitalizing on the development of its trade and business relations with the UAE. From their first partnership agreement in 2004, Germany-UAE relations are robust and development-oriented.
The UAE is home to more than 900 German companies and is the largest trade partner in the Middle East. Nonetheless, the trade surplus is in Germany’s favor to the tune of more than $15 billion. Likewise, German companies significantly contribute to the UAE’s ongoing infrastructure projects and play a leading role in the alternative energy sector. The German Business Park, an area designed to house several of the already present companies and their logistical needs, is in the midst of the Dubai construction sector. This has led to enhanced cooperation between the two countries, as their respective leadership believes in constantly elevating their cooperation to the next level.
