New Owner for BCB

Sun, March 18, 2018


Dear Members

We are pleased to announce that the British Centres for Business (BCB) in the UAE has been acquired by OCO Global, a trade and investment services adviser based in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

BCB was established in July 2014 and provides operational support and market entry services in Dubai and the UAE to British companies.

In 2015 it also took over the provision of overseas market intelligence services (OMIS) from the British Embassies, now covering volume services across all sectors on behalf as DIT’s Delivery Partner in the UAE. This service provides information on a chargeable basis to companies seeking to explore the possibility of exporting to or setting up in the local market.

The BBGs in both Dubai and the Northern Emirates and Abu Dhabi will continue to support BCB under its new ownership in its goal to promote and increase UK trade and investment in the UAE.
