MEET OUR EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

PBC DUBAI'S TEAM DRAGON

As vanguards of Philippine entrepreneurship in the UAE, the council provides avenues for business exchange among Filipino entrepreneurs, and other parties with a commercial interest in the Filipino market in the emirates. The PBC Dubai also endeavors to build and grow business ties with organizations in the Philippines and the UAE; promote the development of bilateral trade, investment, tourism, the exchange of business delegations and improve the overall Philippine-UAE commercial scene. Furthermore, the council also offers assistance to Philippine start-ups setting up in the country.

The Philippine Business Council of Dubai (PBC Dubai), a non-profit organization established in 2001 under the patronage of the Embassy of the Philippines and the Philippine Consulate General of Dubai and the Northern Emirates, is the only Filipino organization recognized by the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry with the esteemed role of facilitating business opportunities for the Filipino community and their commercial partners in the country.   

“The PBC Dubai is a platform, an avenue to promote and create an environment of active cooperation and goodwill amongst its members and the business community in Dubai, the Northern Emirates and the Philippines. Since we re-launched the group in 2015, we have come to define our role in the Filipino community as a repository of information – a knowledge distribution node. Another critical function of the PBC Dubai is to act as ‘connector’ between Filipinos and other business communities in the UAE and beyond.”
