The Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) said Monday that it will host a program aimed at enhancing ties between Australia and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

The program, Australia Unlimited MENA 2015, will take place between April 12 and 19 in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

It is expected to focus on bilateral trade, investment and cultural relations between Australia and the MENA region.

“AU MENA is a great opportunity for us to raise Australia’s profile and deepen relationships within the region’s business community,” said Pablo Kang, Australian ambassador to the UAE.

“This year, we want to position Australia as a nation of innovation, which is well placed to meet the region’s future needs in areas of sustainability, economic diversification and human capital.”
