(United Arab Emirates)

From 27 to 30 January 2020, an economic mission to the UAE under the presidency of H.R.H. the Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxembourg will take place. The important Luxembourg business delegation travelling to the UAE will be led by H.E. Mr Etienne Schneider, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of the Economy and Minister of Health and by H.E. Mr Pierre Gramegna, Minister of Finance.

The mission is organised by the Ministry of the Economy, in close cooperation with the Luxembourg Embassy, the Luxembourg Trade and Investment Office in Abu Dhabi and the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce.
