Why UAE? The UAE is Australia’s largest trading partner in the Middle East and 18th largest overall, with two-way goods and services trade worth $9.8 billion in 2018-19. Australian goods and services exports to the UAE grew 22.2 per cent since the previous financial year. Goods exports to the UAE were worth $3.5 billion in 2018-19 and were dominated by red meat and machinery and automotive parts. Australian goods imports from the UAE were worth $2.6 billion in 2018-19 (mainly petroleum products). Services trade is an increasingly important component of the commercial relationship, including construction, financial and professional services, tourism and education. Education is seen as an area of potential growth, with several Australian institutions active in the UAE market, including Wollongong University which in 1993 was the first private university to establish a campus in Dubai.
