West Midlands exports to the UAE have grown by 30% over the past two years, with little sign that this demand, for the high-quality high-precision highly reliable products the West Midlands produces, will slacken. Indeed as the economies of the UAE intensify moves to diversify, fresh export opportunities are becoming available .
