Fast-track your China potential with ADGM

Explore China market opportunities through ADGM partnerships


ADGM, Your China Gateway

ADGM is uniquely positioned as a gateway into the multi-billion dollar Belt and Road initiative. This is due to the partnership agreements signed with state-owned Chinese entities and the opening of the first ADGM international representative office in Bejing.

Entities interested in entering the large and complex China market or servicing Chinese entities within the UAE and the wider region can fast track their potential by leveraging the advantages which ADGM offers.

ADGM has established close cooperation with nearly 100 Chinese financial institutions and enterprises and is in advanced discussions with 10 institutions in banking, asset management, investment banking, insurance and FinTech. In the next few months, a group of Chinese entities will emerge from these institutions to expand their global footprint in Abu Dhabi.
