Dubai Chamber said businesses can use the marketplace to reduce costs when buying PPE and generate new leads
Dubai Chamber has launched a new online marketplace for businesses to connect reliable buyers and sellers of personal protective equipment (PPE) and medical supplies.
Entitled ‘Rapid Response Initiative’, Dubai Chamber said companies that buy and sell PPE and medical equipment can register on the marketplace at no cost.
The website currently has 15 approved suppliers from the UAE listing a wide range of medical products, including surgical and reusable facemasks, shields, safety goggles, hand sanitizer, disposable gloves, medical gowns and coveralls, ventilators and thermometers.
“This first-of-its-kind initiative supports Dubai Chamber’s efforts to enhance ease of doing business in Dubai and facilitate trade, while it also positions the emirate as a global smart city leveraging digital tools to help fight the spread of Covid-19,” said Dr Belaid Rettab, senior director, Economic Research and Sustainable Business Development sector, Dubai Chamber.
“Businesses using the marketplace can benefit by reducing costs when buying PPE, generating new leads, building long-term partnerships with reliable suppliers. We encourage companies operating in this field to leverage the platform to capitalise on new business opportunities and boost their online exposure,” he added.
