DUBAI: Director of Dubai Customs, Ahmed Mahboob Musabih, held a meeting with Emmanuel Kamarianakis, Consul-General of Canada in Dubai. The two discussed means of boosting cooperation between Canada and Dubai especially in bilateral trade and customs business.

“It’s very important for us to boost ties of partnership with Canadian diplomatic missions and business councils and corporates. We have priorities which include delivering a leading customs expertise to the world,” said Musabih. “Canada is an important trade partner to Dubai. The total value of bilateral non-oil trade in the first nine months in 2017 was Dhs5 billion. Imports had the lion’s share of Dhs4.4 billion, followed by re-exports with Dhs361 million and exports with Dhs180.6 million.”

He added, “Enhancing trade ties with our partners will help them receive the best customs facilitations which will add great value to their business. 150 Canadian companies have activities in the UAE, and we work with them to keep them involved in developmental efforts to help them benefit from our product and service offerings.”

Kamarianakis applauded Dubai Customs’ efforts in supporting the national economy and developing tourism and trade, stating that Dubai is a world-class trade and tourism hub and “a central link between the east and west.”
