The initiatives put on display by Dubai Customs at the Dubai International Government Achievements Exhibition (DIGAE) 2016 have certainly stood out among the rest at the first day of the 3-day mega exhibition. They were greatly applauded by visitors as they provided tools to deliver better Customs services to the public.

DC’s latest  smart achievements and initiatives showcased at the exhibition are  the Virtual Corridor, Smart Enterprise Capability, Enterprise Case Management, Smart Inspection Glasses, Smart Workspace and the Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) Program.

Dubai Customs’ pavilion is themed “Customs achievements.. World-class standards”, and through its smart, user-friendly design, it enables visitors to get ample information on the exhibited initiatives with much ease and convenience.

One of the DC initiatives that mostly attracted the crowds’ attention is the Virtual Corridor, as it offers a great way to cutting costs of business operations and, thus, helps companies enhance their earnings.  

The Smart Inspection Glasses were also very popular and helped deliver greater footfall to the exhibition stand. This leading-edge technology makes containers inspection at Customs checkpoints quicker and easier, by displaying to inspectors the container’s Customs declaration, its risk assessment and x-ray images in a one-stop little screen so they can accordingly take proper measures.

Commenting on Dubai Customs’ active participation in the international show, Chairman and CEO of DP World and Chairman of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation HE Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, stated, “Dubai Customs is taking full advantage of its participation in the DIGAE to share with others its innovative ideas that specifically target client happiness and a faster trade flow. Innovation has become an integral part of our day-to-day operations at Dubai Customs.”

Bin Sulayem commended the 4th edition of the DIGAE which is seeing international participants for the first time, allowing an open dialogue between  top government officials, decision makers as well as the public, in a bid to improve the efficiency and delivery of government services.   

On the other hand, HE Ahmed Mahboob Musabih, the Director of Dubai Customs, said that “Our presence in the DIGAE 2016 is in line with DC’s commitment to sharing its experiences with interested parties and to shed light on the smart initiatives created to ensure our customers are happy.

“DIGAE has become a global hub for government authorities from across the planet to come together to share their insights and best practices on public sector service delivery. This is an opportunity we cannot afford to miss, as the fair serves to introduce both the local and international communities to latest offerings by government departments in Dubai.

The largest edition yet of the DIGAE kicked off yesterday (Monday 11th of April) and will run until the 13th of April at Dubai World Trade Center, under an eloquent motto ‘Local Governments, Global Achievements’.
