As part of its efforts to encourage strong export performance among its members, Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry recognised four companies as SME Exporters of the Month stretching from June to September 2013 during an exclusive ceremony held at its head office recently.
H.E. Hamad Buamim, President & CEO, Dubai Chamber, congratulated the representatives of the four companies including Mondelez International Middle East, Global Gases Group, Can Pack Middle East L.L.C. and Nolte Middle East FZE as he presented them with a certificate of recognition and an SME Exporter of the Month trophy.
The recognition came for Mondelez International Middle East as the company with the Highest Export Value for the Month of June 2013 while Global Gases Group was recognised as the company with the Highest Number of Markets Exported to for the month of July 2013.
Also, Can Pack Middle East L.L.C. was the company with the outstanding export performance in terms of the Highest Number of Certificates of Origin for the Month of August 2013 and Nolte Middle East FZE emerged as the Recent Start Up Company With The Highest Export Value for the Month of September 2013.
In his welcome address, H.E. Buamim lauded the role of the trade sector which he said is a pillar of Dubai’s economy as the SME members play an essential role in its growth and development through their exports and re-exports.
He said: “This recognition, which comes in line with Dubai Chamber’s strategic objectives of creating a favourable business environment and supporting the development of business in Dubai, goes a long way in encouraging higher trade performance by our members while enhancing their competiveness in the domestic and overseas markets.”
H.E. Buamim called upon the representatives of the recognized companies to keep up their high performance momentum and to contribute in strengthening Dubai’s position as the world’s third largest re-export centre while benefitting from the emirate’s high return investment environment. He also highlighted the importance of their contribution to the emirate’s economic growth.
Top officials of the recipient companies expressed their gratitude to Dubai Chamber for the support provided to them. They said the SME Exporter of the Month recognition encourages positive and healthy competition which yields benefits to their company and helped toincrease the overall competitiveness of Dubai businesses.
Dubai Chamber launched the SME Exporter of the Month initiative in 2009, under the name SME Exporter of the Quarter. The initiative was changed in 2010 to make it a monthly event due to its popularity and success.
The data for the selection of the recognition is retrieved from Dubai Chamber’s Certificate of Origin database. Each month, the selection is based on one specific criterion including the highest export valueas compared to last year’s data, the highest number of markets exported to, the highest number of certificates of origin and the recent start-up company with thehighest export value.
