U.S. - Arab Chamber Supports "Arab Health Trade Show In United Arab Emirate

This week, the National U.S. – Arab Chamber of Commerce (NUSACC) supported U.S. stakeholder companies at Arab Health, the preeminent health-related trade show in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The event drew more than 11,000 delegates from around the globe. As such, Arab Health has grown to become the second largest health show in the world after MEDICA, held in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The Dubai-based exhibition, now in its 41st year, was toured by H.H. Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. Punctuating his visit to Arab Health, Sheikh Mohammad launched Dubai Health Strategy 2021, a health care program featuring four main approaches, six objectives, 15 programs, and 93 initiatives over the next five years.

Arab Health was officially opened by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, 1st Deputy Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Deputy Ruler of Dubai. Sheikh Hamdan toured American companies at the U.S. Pavilion, organized by Kallman Worldwide, where he was welcomed by a delegation of U.S. Government and American private sector leaders.

“Arab Health is a top priority of the U.S. Embassy in the UAE,” noted Hon. Barbara Leaf, U.S. Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates. “This is a strategic trade show because it highlights the innovative and cutting edge advantages of American companies involved in health care. This sector will be vital to the UAE and Arab world for decades to come, and U.S. Embassies throughout the region want to ensure that American firms will be at the forefront of MENA initiatives to provide high value, quality care to citizens throughout the region and beyond.”
