Abu Dhabi, May 20, 2012
Reem Investments is looking to boost ties with South Korean companies at a major upcoming exhibition showcasing services and technologies from more than 300 South Korean companies in Abu Dhabi.
The Abu Dhabi based privately held company is the title sponsor of the Made In Korea expo, running from May 21 to 23 at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
Reem Investments has already partnered with two companies from the North East Asian powerhouse showcasing some of the latest technologies at the three day exhibition.
These include EGO, the world’s first 100 per cent electric, zero emissions compact semi submarine; and the T-up golf simulator – the perfect option for a social outing among golfing enthusiasts.
Bambang Sugeng Bin Kajairi, CEO of Reem Investments said: “With our in-depth knowledge and expertise in the local market place, we are promoting Reem Investments as a suitable, trusted partner for those South Korean companies looking to establish a presence, or expand their business in the UAE and wider GCC region.
“Made In Korea 2012 is the ideal platform to further enhance bilateral relations between the UAE and South Korea, and for our part we are here to help organisations either through joint ventures, or direct investment, should the opportunities be in line with our investment mandate.”
More than 130 South Korean companies have set up operations in the UAE in the past ten years, and while trading volumes between the UAE and South Korea is strong, tourism between the two countries is also on a significant upward trend.
