Kevin Chin, Executive Chairman and CEO of VivoPower, said: “The Middle East is the largest market in the world for Toyota Land Cruisers, and we are very pleased to establish a presence here. Increasing our physical footprint allows us to expand our capabilities to effectively service this strategically important market. Furthermore, the UAE Government has just announced its landmark Net Zero 2050 Strategic Initiative with Dh 600 billion (US$200 billion) to be invested in clean and renewable energy solutions over the next 30 years. Aside from covering the Middle East, Dubai will serve as a critical logistical hub to service the African and Indian subcontinent markets. We are grateful to our partners and other counterparts in Dubai who have seamlessly helped us set up our operations in a business-friendly manner while safeguarding essential health and safety protocols. We look forward to servicing this very important region with our sustainable energy solutions and contributing to the Net Zero 2050 Strategic Initiative.” To read our full press release, and to keep up with all VivoPower’s releases, visit our Press Releases page.
