The UAE is one of the UK’s most important trading partners, continuing to be a growth market for UK exports. Its liberal trade regime attracts capital from across the region. A steady population growth, increased awareness of health issues and rising prevalence of lifestyle- based diseases are all increasing demand for healthcare/life sciences provision in the UAE. Despite the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the market now offers even greater

opportunities for health & life science companies from the SE of England.
