MCC and the London Chamber of Commerce (LCCI) are taking a select group of companies interested in exploring business opportunities in the UAE to Dubai and Abu Dhabi as part of the Club's Champion County tour.
Delegates on the trade mission will have the opportunity to attend the Emirates Airline t20 in Dubai - featuring MCC, Sussex CCC, Lancashire CCC and a Kerala Premier League team from India - followed by the Champion County fixture itself, between MCC and Durham in Abu Dhabi.
The UAE is the UK's largest civil export market in the Middle East and North Africa and is the UK's twelth largest export of goods market, at around £5.1bn.
More than 100,000 British nationals are estimated to be living, working or studying in the UAE. The UK and the UAE are committed to increasing bilateral trade in goods and services to £12bn by 2015.
Key sectors for the UK in the UAE are: infrastructure (construction and mass transport), energy, defence and security, education and training, financial and professional services, and creative industries and media.
Other partners for the mission are HSBC, the Arab-British Chamber of Commerce. The programme will last seven days.
