The Isle of Man has forged new ties with the Middle East to "strengthen economic and business links", according to the government.

It is hoped a new memorandum of understanding with Dubai will mean more business and trade opportunities.

The agreement has been confirmed after a series of meetings between the two governments in 2010.

An economic development spokesman said it paved the way for local firms to attract Middle Eastern investment.
