Greeks have been associated with the Middle East since antiquity and more recently, for many generations. The increasing number of professional Greeks in Dubai, especially during the years 2008-09, and the respective augmentation of social meetings among the members of the Emirates Greeks society, led to the need of creating a more formal base. As a result, on March 2010 the Hellenic Business Council was founded, under license from the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the support of the Hellenic Embassy in Abu Dhabi under the guidance of the ambassador, Mr. Zois.
The HBC is a private initiative that exists for the benefit of our community and can only thrive through the active participation of its members. Its constitution enshrines the core objectives of the council which essentially are:
- to provide a presence of the Greek community in Dubai;
- to provide a networking forum for members to interact with fellow Greek professionals as well as members of other business councils;
- and to represent the interests of the Greek community in Dubai to the local and Greek authorities.
The Administrative Council which is elected by the HBC members, carries out a program of activities to present matters of interest to the community, networks with other business councils and keeps the community united by celebrating our customs and national days together. Through the HBC website, Linkedin and Facebook groups we welcome suggestions, comments and requests.
We believe that a formal representation of our community is essential, especially now that our country is going through such a difficult time and more and more of our country men and women find themselves in Dubai.
