Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry recently hosted its Exporter of the Month ceremony at its head office where 8 member companies were recognised for outstanding export performance during the first 8 months of 2019. GTCS Trading DMCC and DBMSC Steel FZCO were both recognised as companies reaching the highest export value, while Hitech Industries FZE and Bericap Middle East FZE received the honour for having the highest number of export markets.
Marico Middle East and Marcolin Middle East FZCO were named as the two companies issuing the highest number of Certificates of Origin. Hanwha Techwin Middle East FZE and Blue Star International FZCO were recognised as two recent startups achieving the highest export value. During the ceremony, Atiq Juma Nasib, Senior Vice President of Commercial Services, Dubai Chamber, congratulated all of the honourees and presented the company representatives with certificates and Exporter of the Month trophies.
He explained that Dubai Chamber’s Exporter of the Month initiative remains a benchmark for outstanding trade performance which companies in Dubai aspire to, and explained how it supports the development of businesses in the emirate. “By analysing the performance of trading companies, we are taking the pulse of the sector and identifying key areas where exporters and re-exporters are excelling, as well as best practices that are being adopted by industry players,” said Atiq.
Dubai Chamber launched the Exporter of the Month initiative in 2009 under the name Exporter of the Quarter, to recognise the outstanding exporting companies in Dubai. The selection of companies is based on distinct and specific criteria derived from the Chamber’s Certificate of Origin database.
