Company information

The British Business Group (BBG) Dubai and Northern Emirates currently have a membership of over 700 individual companies with a common interest of promoting trade between the UK and the UAE, most specifically Dubai & the Northern Emirates.

Developing British business takes many forms, from communicating with decision makers to sharing best business practice and networking amongst members. Here's a brief guide to some of the Group's activities:

The BBG 's principal activity is to encourage the development of business with Dubai and the Northern Emirates.

It is recognised by the authorities of the UAE as the representative body of British companies and individuals operating in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.

One of the Group's prime objectives is communication:
  • with the keyplayers - businessmen and women in the UAE and UK;
  • with policy-makers and decision-makers in the UK, both in government and business;
  • with the national leaders of the UAE;
  • with other British business groups in the Gulf region.

The BBG was founded in 1987 and we operate under the auspices of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry. The BBG is led by a committee of annually elected members and the professionally staffed office supports the Committee and manages the Group's administration.

Monthly Forum luncheons and reception dinners, together with informal networking provide a forum for members and guests to discuss their views, concerns and opinions.

Guest speakers from the British Government, the commercial world of the UK and the UAE Government, together with local business personalities, are invited to speak at these functions and take questions.

Close liaison with the Commercial Section of the British Embassy further enhances this environment, as does regular contact with UAE Ministers and prominent local family businessmen.
