Germany–United Arab Emirates relations
United Arab Emirates
Germany – United Arab Emirates relations are the relations between the United Arab Emirates and Germany. They were established in May 1972. The U.A.E. has an embassy in Berlin and consulate-general in Munich while Germany maintains an embassy in Abu Dhabi and a consulate-general in Dubai. German exports amount to 5.84 billion Euros. German companies significantly contribute to the UAE’s ongoing infrastructure projects and play a leading role in the country’s alternative energy developments. Consequently, German Business Park, an area designed to house several of the already seven hundred present companies and their logistical needs, is in the midst of construction.
There are thousands of expatriate Germans in the United Arab Emirates who have helped maintain connections between the two countries.
