The Water & Clean Tech sector is one of the most relevant sectors for Ontario companies. This sector is also specified as a priority area for the Middle East/ GCC and Africa countries governments and the private sectors, due to climatic conditions, high energy usage, increasing commitment of governments and new private entrants as solution providers. The countries in the GCC and Africa feature many common drivers for renewable energy, such as high population growth, and a dramatic increase in demand for electricity.

Saudi Arabia, UAE and Qatar are at the top of the attractive markets in the Clean-Tech sector due to their government plans, budgets and long-term strategies
The Emirates’ economy has become the most open in the Middle East, and having a business in UAE, the regional hub and transit point for exports and imports, offers the possibility to expand not only into the local market, but also to those of the surrounding countries.

The purpose of the mission is to help Ontario companies promote their products and services, meet key business players, governmental stakeholders and business associations from water and cleantech sector, in order to further business relationships between companies in Ontario/ Canada and the MENA region, to create awareness in the MENA about the Ontario companies’ competencies and capacities and to introduce investment opportunities available in the MENA region.
