The week-long visit, scheduled from 19 to 26 April 2017, aims to highlight how Chinese companies can benefit from the integrated technology ecosystem that DIC offers. The trip comes at a time when a key focus for the Chinese government is the Internet Plus Plan. A new driving force for economic development, the plan looks at transforming China into a digital economy by integrating digital technologies with modern manufacturing and encouraging technology companies in China to increase their global presence.

According to the ‘Dubai FDI Monitor’, the majority of investments into Dubai in 2015 were in the medium- to high-tech industries. This trend is supported by an increasing number of Chinese technology companies which are operating in DIC already, such as China Telecom Global Middle East and Africa, Union Pay and Huawei, which is driving innovation through its dedicated ‘Huawei Innovation Centre’ and playing a major role in Dubai’s Smart City programme.

Commenting on the huge potential of international collaboration, Ammar Al Malik, Executive Director Dubai Internet City, said: “China is a very important market and valued partner of the UAE. We see huge potential to build on this partnership through offering Chinese technology companies the ideal environment to set up business or expand their footprint in the region.”

He added: “DIC seeks to provide a diverse, vibrant environment that enables technology companies to innovate, thrive and grow their business. The China visit represents a major opportunity for us to support the growth of China’s digital economy, by encouraging global tech leaders to come to the region. We hope to build relationships with key players in the technology space and attract new talent to the mix of Fortune 500 corporations, SMEs and startups that constitutes our community.”

A crucial part of DIC’s agenda is exhibiting at the China Shanghai International Technology Fair 2017 that will run from 20 to 22 April at Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center.

In addition, the team will attend a forum hosted by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and China Corporate United Pavilion, expected to draw the participation of several high-ranking Chinese government officials including representatives of the Shanghai Municipal Commission of Commerce, who will have the opportunity to learn more about DIC’s strategic approach to building technology centred partnerships.

In order to exchange best practice, and learn more about China’s efforts in this space, DIC also visited Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, one of China's state-level hi-tech zones, as well as will join Falcon & Associates as they visit the city of Shenzhen, where major global Chinese technology companies are based.
