Dubai Exports has launched the ‘Exporters Gateway,’ a knowledge platform that provides vital economic and trade data for the UAE and Dubai as well as information on the most sought-after UAE products.
The launch of the digital platform is part of the Gulfood 2019 exhibition, and one of a series of initiatives Dubai Exports seeks to implement as part of diversifying its services and exploring new channels that increase export capabilities of local companies and enable them to successfully compete in foreign markets.
Saed Al Awadi, CEO of Dubai Exports, said: “The Exporters Gateway aims to promote exports from the UAE while also enhancing export competitiveness and the quality of the exporter services we provide. The portal features a range of innovative technical solutions and digital content, which will complement our efforts to boost exports and the growth of our national enterprise in international markets.”
The portal will enable exporters to search for and identify opportunities across seven key sectors in more than 40 target markets globally. “Currently, the portal lists more than 60 products in which our local exporters have a competitive edge across the global markets targeted,” said Al Awadi.
The portal is particularly advantageous to exporters in overcoming major challenges in marketing their product, searching for partners, selecting the ideal partner, and estimating the export costs, said Abdul Rahman Al Omari, director of Exports Market Development in Dubai Exports, adding that exporters can hence easily navigate the export process and markets.
“Dubai Exports seeks to help our local companies to grow and enhance their overseas trade, and accordingly we continue to deliver services and initiatives that keep them abreast of emerging trends in global consumer behaviour. The Exporters Gateway will increase business development opportunities for local companies and eliminate many obstacles that our manufacturers and exporters often face in their target markets.
