“The new strategy supports the five-year plan announced by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to boost Dubai’s non-oil foreign trade to Dh. 2 trillion,” said Sultan bin Sulayem.
He added that the plan, once implemented, would elevate Dubai’s position in the global arena and expand the emirate’s trade partnerships with key markets around the world.
“Dubai International Chamber is well positioned to achieve the new trade targets announced by Sheikh Mohammed as it enjoys access to representative offices across Africa, Eurasia, and Latin America that are working to facilitate Dubai’s trade flows with other countries,” said Bin Sulayem.
He noted that “30 target markets have been identified under the strategy adopted by Dubai International Chamber, which offer huge economic potential.”
Bin Sulayem said the new strategy enables Dubai International Chamber to more effectively promote Dubai as a preferred global business hub and attract leading multinational companies to the emirate, which can enhance its competitiveness in key sectors such as trade, infrastructure, logistics, digital economy, retail, and manufacturing among others.
Dubai International Chamber was established to strengthen partnerships with global corporations, investors and entrepreneurs and boost Dubai’s status as a major trade hub. Adopting a more specialized approach to driving Dubai’s foreign trade, the chamber promotes opportunities that the emirate offers in facilitating trade flows.
