China-MENAT Corridor 2023: Unlocking growth potential

  • Article

New opportunities are arising across a trade route that stretches back more than a thousand years, between what today are two of the world's economically most dynamic regions. With global supply lines being redrawn and the technological revolution continuing to gather pace, the two regions most ideally placed to tap into these new opportunities are the Middle East and China.

Our footprint positions us perfectly to support clients in both directions of travel between China and MENAT, with experts on the ground in key markets in both regions. We are able in this report to highlight the key trading opportunities in each of the two regions for businesses from each of the other regions.

If you would like to speak in more detail to someone from HSBC about doing business in the region then please feel free to reach out to one of the team below. We've also included some further resources with more detail on the UAE, GCC, North Africa and Türkiye.
