The value of non-oil foreign trade between Dubai and Japan reached Dh31 billion ($8.44 billion) in the first three quarters of 2017, compared to a total of Dh44 billion during the whole of 2016, according to the Director of the Dubai Customs, Ahmed Mahboob Musabih.
The fgures were revealed during Musabih's meeting with the Japanese Consul-General in Dubai, Akima Umezawa, to discuss the strengthening of cooperation to promote trade between the UAE and Japan, said a Wam news agency report.
Welcoming the consul-general, Musabih emphasised the commitment of Dubai Customs to engage in constant coordination with members of the Japanese diplomatic corps to boost trade between Dubai and Japan by catering to the needs of the Japanese business community in terms of customs and border services.
"We ensure our trading partners have the finest of customs facilities that give real added value to their active business sectors in Dubai," Musabih said.
"Dubai Customs is keen to directly engage with all Japanese businesses based in Dubai so as to solve any issues they may face and help maximise their performance and trade returns," he added.
Noting that Dubai’s smooth customs procedures have benefited the flow of bilateral trade, he added: "We seek to add more growth to this trade through enhanced communication and cooperation with all Japanese business actors, in a way that also benefits the sustainable economic development of Dubai and the UAE."
