Last week, various business groups got together under one roof at the Ritz Carlton DIFC…..I was representing the International Business Women’s Group and we had special invites from the very generous Australian Business Council to attend this networking event. I met a lovely lady there, Dr. Anna Uzarowska from the German Emirati Joint Council for Industry & Commerce (AHK), a German semi-governmental organization and member of the world-wide German Chambers Network.
It was founded in May 2009 and was inaugurated by the former German Federal Minister of Economy and Technology.
Anna sent me a note post the networking saying that the AHK is the first bilateral federal business organization as well as the first international institution on federal level which has been founded in the Gulf. It promotes and supports trade relations between Germany and the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain and in particular supports German companies in building up and extending their business in the region.
AHK represents the interests of the German business community in the UAE as well as the interests of all its members (both German and local companies). Regardless of the company size or the nationality, AHK members are VIP clients who are offered support from the network of the group, contacts and services. Check them out on www.ahkuae.com
