International Trade & Investment
AWT was first established in 1994 in Sydney by Karl Kazal and has evolved over the years to establish strong ties to the Middle East with a second office opened in Dubai by Tony Kazal.
Together Karl and Tony were able to forge relationships between Australia and the Middle East at governement and major industry levels hosting a series of trade delegations to and from Australia.
In 1998-2000, Karl, Tony and younger brother Charif established the Annual Sydney Camel Races at Randwick Racecourse as a major event to showcase relations between Australia and the UAE which were building in the lead up to the Sydney 2000 Olympics.
The events brought together Ministers, Ambassadors and senior business and government delegates to examine opportunities to grow investment and trade between these nations.
AWT has provided government defence and other department introductions and led delegations of Ministers to help drive growth.
In 2009, Karl was instrumental in supporting the NSW State Government establish an office in Abu Dhabi to promote trade and development opportunities.
Karl and Tony received the prestigious Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan medal in 1999 for services to the UAE. At the time, Karl & Tony were 2 of only 3 non-political background candidates to ever be awarded the UAE's highest honour.

Company Introductions & Partner Searches
Whilst the Middle East is brimming with opportunities, the path to business can be both complex and difficult.
