Trade Mission United Arab Emirates & Oman
Womens sports in the UAE are quickly growing. There are more opportunities for women to practise sports and it is more and more accepted. Exercise is highly promoted by the local government, especially as part of prevention of Diabetes and Obesity in the UAE. Because of the increasing sports participation, there is a larger need for sports facilities and knowledge about sports and healthy nutrition. Men and women are playing sports separated. Because of that, the need for sports facilities for specifically women are increasing, and women are not allowed to be trained by men from the age of 16. This creates opportunities for Dutch companies who are active in sports infrastructure and coaching in womens sports.
There are a lot of opportunities in the Sultinate of Oman for the Dutch sports industry. Several business relations of the Dutch Embassy and Orange Sports Forum are interested in an introduction with the Dutch delegation to identify the opportunities in the field of sports nutrition, sports infrastructure and football.
