Emirates Global Aluminium (EGA), the largest industrial company in the UAE outside oil and gas, has announced the opening of its first office in China.

The office in Shanghai of EGA’s wholly-owned Chinese subsidiary will source raw materials and other supplies in China, a statement said, adding that EGA has procured over $500 million of supplies from China over the past two years.

The office will also deepen commercial ties by developing sales opportunities for bauxite from EGA’s under-development mine in the Republic of Guinea, the company said.

Abdulla Kalban, EGA’s managing director and CEO, said: “China is already a substantial source of raw materials and supplies for EGA, and we expect the importance of China for our business to grow in the coming years.”
