DCCI launches online trading portal
Dubai, November 26, 2008
The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Tejari, a business to business online marketplace, have unveiled an online trading portal to help traders source opportunities, a report said.
'This move is one more step in establishing Dubai as the gateway and information hub of global trade,' DCCI director general Hamad Buamim was quoted as saying in the Gulf News.
'Dubaibizmatch.com will significantly enhance both import and export links between Dubai and the worldwide business community.'
The DCCI partnered with Tejari to create the virtual platform which matches business opportunities in Dubai with the needs of the international business community.
'In the bleak situation seen in the last months this could be a haven for traders to come and find opportunities,' said Tejari chief executive Omar Hijazi.
The portal would be available to DCCI and Tejari members, which add up to around 300,000 companies and businesses.
