Dubai - the meeting place

Since earliest times, Dubai has been a meeting place, bringing people and trade together, the merchant of the city with the sea-going fisherman.

The Emirate is both a dynamic international business centre and a vibrant tourist destination, a city where the sophistication of the 21st century walks hand in hand with the simplicity of a bygone era.

Dubai presents international business with a wide range in Trade, Transport and distribution, Manufacturing and processing, as well as serving as the hub for numerous Regional offices.

Dubai commands a large market - more than $17 billion in domestic imports annually and a gateway to a $150 billion p.a., with a 1.4 billion population regional import market. It is a rapidly growing market - Dubai's imports have more than doubled since 1989.

Dubai is also a highly accessible market. It is served by more than 170 shipping lines and 86 airlines and is an open market - no exchange controls, quotas or trade barriers.

To handle the immense volumes of commercial goods in and out of the country, Dubai has built up a strong infrastructure for logistics companies.

Professional companies that can integrate dedication, professionalism and flexibility with worldwide logistics partners have come to the fore to provide round-the-clock attention to discerning customers.
