Ahmed Butti Ahmed, the director general of Dubai Customs, said that the department is keen to create direct links with its various customers in several ways, including the advisory board that compromises leading traders and heads of business groups.
The council holds its meetings four times a year with the aim of developing the customs services.
Opening the annual meeting of the customers, organized by the department at Atlantis Hotel, The Palm Ahmed Butti Ahmed said Dubai Customs considers customers strategic business partners.
The department is very successful locally, regionally and internationally, and is facilitating trade and accelerating procedures. This could not have been achieved without this strategic partnership, and customer’s support for the initiatives launched for them.
