Dubai Chamber hosts Kuwait Chamber in effort to grow bilateral relations
The meeting came as part of the Dubai Chamber’s efforts to share experiences and best practices in the implementation of ATA Carnets, as well as its efforts to increase bilateral cooperation across the GCC chambers of commerce.
The Kuwait Chamber delegation was led by Abdulaziz Salim, assistant director of computers and IT, and Abdul Al Mutawa, assistant for transactions. Atiq Nasib, senior vice president for the commercial services sector at Dubai Chamber, led the Dubai section of the meeting.
Nasib spoke at the meeting about the 11,900 new companies that joined the Dubai Chamber in the first nine months of 2016. The chamber’s total membership is now 195,000, a 4.3 percent growth.
Nasib mentioned the positive role played by Dubai Chamber in issuing Certificates of Origin, which numbered 692,000 between January and September, as well as the issuance of 125 ATA carnets in the first half of the year. Nasib then went on to speak about exports and trade.
“The recent establishment of the Kuwait Business Council in Dubai and Northern Emirates is seen as a positive step to boost economic cooperation and enhancement of trade and commerce between the business communities of the two brotherly GCC countries while taking their bilateral trade relations to a higher level,” he said.
