Our Middle East operations are relocating to the Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC), United Arab Emirates (UAE). Its special mix of well-established industries, such as oil and gas, basic materials and manufacturing, coupled with a focus on diversification, improved education and private sector investment, together, make the UAE, and Abu Dhabi and Dubai in particular, an ideal place for our base in this region.
Over the last few decades, our professionals in the UAE have arranged numerous joint ventures for large building and infrastructure projects, assisted companies with supply chain and importing operations, and advised many partners through strategic expansion in the region. As the UAE continues to invest in large scale projects and industry leading innovations, the Global Access team will be there to partner with our clients in their success.
Global Access is targeting opening its European hub in 2018 in Frankfurt, Germany. Currently, we maintain a small European presence in London.
