Dubai Investments (DI), the largest investment company listed on the Dubai Financial Market (DFM), is working closely with Dubai Exports, the export promotion agency of the Department of Economic Development (DED), Government of Dubai, to reinforce its growth strategy in export markets.

As part of its association, DI is now a permanent part of the exhibition area of Dubai Exports, located in the DED headquarters. The exhibition space showcases products and services of its member-establishments in a centralised location, apart from hosting meetings with international companies. DI also has access to the Dubai Exports Resource Centre, which houses trade data and latest
industry reports.

Dubai Exports is also promoting DI products and services through its network across the globe. DI participates in a number of trade shows and exhibitions under the auspices of Dubai Exports to realise market opportunities and export capabilities. DI and its subsidiaries were part of the UAE Pavilion spearheaded by Dubai Exports at the KazBuild 2013, the leading construction trade exhibition in Almaty,
Kazakhstan, recently.

DI will also be part of the Dubai Exports umbrella at the BakuBuild 2013, the leading international exhibition for the construction industry to be held from October 23 to 26 at Baku, Azerbaijan.
