The bilateral trade between the two countries grown exponentially from USD 63 million in 1984 to approximately USD 60 billion in 2015.

ADGM’s participation in the China Investment Conference is a continuation of its ongoing engagements and commitment to support China’s strategy for furthering trade and long-term economic ties in Asia and the Middle East regions. Since October 2015, ADGM has successfully established partnerships with key Chinese regulatory counterparts in both the commercial and financial sectors. As an international financial centre that is anchored on Abu Dhabi’s economic infrastructure and financial strengths, ADGM’s commercial and financial offering and framework provides a strategic platform for Chinese companies and investors seeking to extend their investment interests and businesses in the UAE and wider region.

Together with ADX, ADGM will also be meeting with business and funds industry leaders in China to exchange ideas and explore initiatives that will facilitate business developments in both respective markets.
