“This collaboration represents a significant milestone for both Conares and C&D, as we leverage our respective strengths to foster economic growth and enhance trade relations. By combining Conares’ expertise in steel manufacturing with Chinese steel, known for its exceptional quality, stable quantity and wide variety we aim to cater to the rising demand for steel products in the GCC market.”

This collaboration signifies a new chapter of cooperation between C&D and the UAE, and we are confident that our high-quality steel products will contribute to the development and growth of various industries in the region.”

Conares, with its advanced manufacturing facilities and commitment to delivering excellence, claims to be well positioned to cater to this demand. The partnership with C&D enables Conares to expand its product portfolio and ensure a steady supply of high-quality Chinese steel to meet the region’s evolving needs, it added: “Conares remains steadfast in its dedication to supporting the UAE’s vision of economic diversification and sustainable development.
