VANCOUVER, B.C., Mar. 23 /CSRwire/ - GLOBE 2010 in Vancouver, B.C., March 24-26, 2010 will host a delegation of entrepreneurs from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as part of the first 'SME CLEANTECH Mission' to Canada. The entrepreneurs are members of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Establishment for SME Development (MBRE), the Dubai Government's development agency for small and medium enterprises.

With the overall theme focussing on clean technology and low-carbon future, GLOBE 2010 is ideally positioned for the 'SME CLEANTECH Mission' where the UAE-based entrepreneurs will have the unparalleled opportunity to learn about cutting-edge technologies to become sustainable entities and explore new business avenues through international cooperation. The UAE is emerging as one of the biggest markets for Cleantech according to recent reports.

"We are pleased to support the 'SME CLEANTECH Mission' with a rewarding program of activities," said GLOBE 2010 President and CEO John Wiebe. "I believe that the visit will provide a tremendous bridge to the UAE and the region that would enable young Emirati entrepreneurs to meet prominent delegates and speakers at GLOBE 2010 and better understand the dynamics of the environmental business sector."

The ten-member delegation will be led by MBRE CEO HE Abdul Baset Al Janahi, and will be participating in several activities to further strengthen their knowledge of the sector. Over 1000 MBRE members are subsequently expected to benefit from the event.

The initiative has been conceived in association with S.S. Lootah Canada, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dubai-based S.S Lootah Group which is a strategic partner of the GLOBE Foundation in the Middle East. The partnership aims to promote Cleantech and sustainable living business opportunities in the region.
