In ESEA we celebrate a partnership that truly brings benefits for the drivers of trade and business in Dubai. It is an old saying that information is power. In today’s world, it is even more specific - information is the power that drives business, and with the tools available in our IT world, it drives efficiency and therefore profit. Dubai Trade is a fantastic example of how successful that can be. The acceptance of the Dubai Trade Portal and the astonishing growth in the number of transactions crossing that portal is evidence that it is making an appreciable difference to the trader’s business lives.
