Dubai, UAE – The China Innovation Centre, which was launched by Dubai Chambers during day one of the Dubai Business Forum, has signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with Newlink NaaS, Ecoblox (the Dubai-based distributor of China’s Tecorigin), and Zhejiang Dayu Construction. The agreements will support three Chinese multinational companies in setting up their businesses in Dubai and leveraging the emirate’s strategic location to expand into regional and global markets.

Newlink NaaS, a renewable energy technology business valued at over US$ 500 million, will showcase its innovative products and solutions at the centre as it prepares to establish its presence in Dubai. Hosted from mid-November until 12th December, the showcase will take place at the same time as the COP28 climate summit and is expected to attract numerous clean energy companies and delegations. Regular business matchmaking and networking events will be hosted throughout the six-week period, in addition to visits from Chinese delegations.

As part of the centre’s agreement with Dubai-based high-performance computing solutions specialist Ecoblox, the two parties will support Tecorigin, a leading Chinese supercomputing technology provider based in Wuxi City, as it explores data centre and supercomputing equipment manufacturing opportunities in the UAE. The agreement also encompasses cooperation to promote bilateral research and development partnerships between China and Dubai in the field of commercial applications for the next generation of Chinese supercomputers. The MoU with Zhejiang Dayu Construction will support the establishment of the company’s regional headquarters in Dubai. Valued at over US$ 1 billion, Zhejiang Dayu Construction is a prominent engineering, procurement, and construction company from China’s Zhejiang Province. The company specialises in a variety of construction projects including highway projects, municipal projects, landscaping projects, interior and exterior design projects, garden restoration projects, earthworks (excluding mining), foundation projects, and water conservation projects.
