Mr. Abdallah Touqan, Director of PR and Communications at dubizzle, commented saying: "dubizzle is seeking to develop and promote buying and selling used items, to educate and guide UAE residents about the many benefits of classified ads, and encourage them to accept the idea of "giving up" items that are no longer needed or used. Some people in the same community may need certain items, which is a positive incentive that contributes to upgrading lifestyle within the community - thus, changing ownership culture within the community. When people can exchange things they do not use, they are contributing to the market’s satisfaction in terms of price and quantity or supply and demand, in addition to sustaining cash, liquidity and wealth within the local market.
