Dubai Chamber promotes food export trade with Azerbaijani, Georgian merchants

Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry members recently completed food import trade missions to the capital cities of Baku, Azerbaijan, and Tbilisi, Georgia, to publicize potential export advantages and industry practices for the two locales.

The delegation organized two successful food export briefings, attended by over 70 public and private sector representatives in each city, at which several Dubai Chamber officers made remarks. The chamber’s international offices director, Omar Khan, outlined the conferences’ purpose as providing a broad look at doing business with Dubai, with an emphasis on packaging and health certification guidelines.

Khan said Azerbaijan and Georgia could do quite well by developing export business with Dubai as both markets yield high quality produce.

Delegation participants also included Ketevan Bochorishvili, deputy minister of economy and sustainable development in Georgia; Abdalla Al Shamsi, deputy mission chief for the UAE Embassy in Azerbaijan; Yusuf Abdullayev, vice president of Azerbaijan Export and Investment Promotion Foundation; and Amal Salem Saeed Al Bedwawi, who heads food studies and risk assessment for Dubai Municipality.

The gatherings were produced in collaboration with Dubai Municipality, Azerbaijan Export and Investment Promotion Fund and Entrepreneurship Development Agency (Enterprise Georgia). 

The Dubai Chamber’s field office in Baku is considered a viable gateway for developing the UAE’s participation in Commonwealth of Independent States markets, comprising the former Soviet republics of Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.
