            • 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM (UTC+04:00)
            • Webinar

            The Canadian Business Council (CBC) Abu Dhabi is pleased to support the live webinar The Dubai Advantage - Logistics Sector Opportunities hosted by CBC Dubai and Northern Emirates in collaboration with Dubai Investment Development Agency (Dubai FDI).

            The UAE's logistics sector has been making great strides over the recent years, as the country retains its advanced ranking across global competitiveness indices thanks to the strong offerings of its free zones and massive infrastructure investments. Many distributors and retail chains operate in the wider region and use the UAE with its excellent logistics and warehousing as a base for re-exports, thereby offering additional value add and sales opportunities to international suppliers.

            As part of Dubai’s Industrial Strategy 2030, the development of the logistics sector is seen as a strategically important goal for sustained long term success of the national economy. Studies developed by the Ministry of Economy believe that the country's integrated free zones, massive investments in infrastructure and fast-growing e-commerce are some of the key reasons that are driving the logistics industry and putting the UAE ahead of the most of the emerging markets globally.
