Dubai’s top exporters awarded trophies to mark their success in the first half of the year
Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry has held an SME Exporter of the Month ceremony to recognise its top exporting members between January and May 2013.
Director General, Dubai Chamber, Hamad Buamim, presented representatives of each exporting company with a certificate of recognition and an SME Exporter of the Month trophy.
The companies honoured by the chamber were: ME Global International for obtaining the highest export value in January; Royal Golden General Trading for achieving the highest number of markets exported to in February; DIA 33, a recent start-up which reached the highest export value in March; Schneider Electric for applying for the highest number of certificates of origin in April; and Ashour Trading FZCO for being the company with the highest export growth rate in May.
Since the launch of the SME Exporter of the Month initiative, the chamber has awarded more than 40 companies, emphasising its support in developing Dubai’s business environment.
Buamim said: “Trade is a pillar of Dubai's economy and our SME members play an essential role in its growth and development through their exports and re-exports. Our SME Exporter of the Month initiative encourages our members to improve their performance, which in turn helps to accelerate the emirate's economic growth.”
