​​​​​​​than 180 countries.

Our Strategic Plans

National Agenda for Non-oil Export Development

The agenda aims to boost national exports and define the outlines of the UAE’s foreign trade and global markets’ development, linking them to the actual needs and capabilities of exporters in the UAE. This will allow the exporting companies to enter specialised markets and target new growing and promising markets that promote the UAE's high-quality and globally competitive products.

Among its objectives, the agenda aims to reinforce the UAE’s leading position as regional and international hub for re-exports, and raise the national companies’ contributions to the UAE exports. The agenda also seeks to raise the efficiency of national products and increase their competitiveness in global markets, coordinate the national efforts of federal and local entities and reinforce integration between them, and harness modern technologies in businesses that support the flow of goods.

The agenda supports 14 vital and priority sectors in the UAE and aims to boost the UAE's foreign trade and increase the percentage of national exports compared to re-exports by 50% of the total exports over the next few years. The agenda also builds on the national efforts to achieve the UAE's strategies in priority sectors including advanced industries and food security.
