A total of 19 companies will be exhibiting on the French pavilion organided by Business France at the Middle East Energy (formerly Known as Middle East Electricity) running from March 3 to 5 at Dubai World Trade Centre.
This event is positioned as a global energy event bringing together manufacturers and suppliers covering the entire energy value chain.
Expected to once again generate interest and attract a large number of local professionals, the French pavilion will represent the sector as a whole - equipment and applications for power generation, transmission and distribution, protection and security products and systems, and lighting.
As an advantage of a very favourable context ($109 billion of investment forecasts within the next five years in the Middle East), the development of tourism, mass distribution, transport and logistics, the main drivers of growth outside the hydrocarbon market, are fuelling regional markets demand.
Frederic Szabo, managing director Business France Middle East, stated: “France has a strong expertise, a cutting edge technology and diversified range of services in this sector, with internationally recognised flagship companies (e.g. RTE, EDF, Schneider Electric).
“Our knowhow also benefits from a resolutely R&D-oriented strategy and innovative capacity. French companies, having gone digital, are highly qualified to operate at all levels of the value chain, whether they are electricity and telecoms network operators, engineering firms, integrators, equipment manufacturers, component producers or ICT companies.” – TradeArabia News Service
