Delegation trip from vbw and DAFG to Saudi Arabia and UAE, 30.10. — 03.11.2022

The DAFG — Ger­man-Arab Fri­end­ship Socie­ty e.V. tog­e­ther with the vbw — Asso­cia­ti­on of Bava­ri­an Busi­ness e.V. orga­ni­zed a cross-indus­try dele­ga­ti­on trip to Riyadh, Abu Dha­bi and Dubai, in which the manage­ment of TUM Inter­na­tio­nal par­ti­ci­pa­ted. The pri­ma­ry goal of the trip was a sus­tainable inten­si­fi­ca­ti­on of Ger­man-Sau­di and Ger­man-Emi­ra­ti rela­ti­ons.

The Arab Gulf sta­tes are in tran­si­ti­on, trans­forming the eco­no­mic sec­tor into a modern, high-tech know­ledge socie­ty. An over­whel­ming majo­ri­ty of young and well-edu­ca­ted acce­le­ra­tes the trans­for­ma­ti­on. Diver­si­fi­ca­ti­on, Indus­try 4.0, smart cities, sci­ence, and tech­no­lo­gy parks are just a few examp­les of how eco­no­mies are being repo­si­tio­ned. In addi­ti­on, pro­fits from the ener­gy sec­tor are being reinves­ted in a sus­tainable man­ner. Exci­ting oppor­tu­ni­ties for Ger­man and Euro­pean part­ners.  
Repre­sen­ta­ti­ves of TUMTUM Inter­na­tio­nal and HDBW dis­cus­sed ide­as, con­cepts, and joint approa­ches with stake­hol­ders from indus­try, aca­de­mia and govern­ment.
The extre­me­ly diver­se pro­gram offe­red many start­ing points for future coope­ra­ti­on as well as ple­nty of time for net­wor­king along the way.
