The University of Dubai has helped to organise a week-long training programme for prominent Singaporean firms.
A total of 21 senior executives from Singapore's private and public sectors attended the programme which was held at venues in Doha, Qatar, Abu Dhabi and the UAE.
Members of International Enterprise Singapore worked in partnership with the community outreach arm of the University of Dubai to host the event. Attending firms included Keppel, Surbana, CrimsonLogic as well as public sector participants from the education ministry and Singapore's monetary authority.
The programme's objective was to expose senior Singaporean decision makers to the intricacies of doing business in the Middle East, in addition to offering networking opportunities for businesses in Singapore.
Dubai's university was set up in 1997 by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry to address skills and qualifications gaps in the workforce as well as to support business development projects.
