(Dubai) – DMCC, the Government authority on trade, enterprise and commodities in Dubai, announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding, MoU, with Zhongwei Ningxia Municipal People’s Government in China.
The purpose of the Memorandum is to explore new collaboration, directives and initiatives to drive bilateral trade between DMCC and Zhongwei as part of the ‘One Belt One Road’ initiative. The Ningxia Province oversees large trade in Halal food and with Emirates Airline recently opening up a direct flight to Yinchuan, the import and export of Halal food is expected to increase significantly.
Commenting on the new strategic partnership, Gautam Sashittal, Chief Executive Officer, DMCC, said, “At DMCC, we are passionate about building and delivering new marketplaces whilst enabling businesses to expand into new territories. This collaboration with Zhongwei marks a natural next step in how we seek to drive the future of trade by increasing cross-border efficiencies for those looking to establish a business in Dubai and in the wider Ningxia Province.
“Today’s MoU also reinforces the strong trading relations between China and Dubai, underpinned by the ‘One Belt One Road’ initiative. In May, Emirates launched its first direct flight to Yinchuan in the Ningxia Province and this is a major lift for us as we aim to boost the commodities trade along the One Belt One Road.”
The memorandum also aims to connect DMCC’s 12,000 member companies and encourage trade between the west-central Ningxia Province and producing and consuming countries in the West as part of China’s ‘One Belt One Road’ strategy. Bilateral trade between the UAE and China remains strong. China ranks as the UAE’s second largest trading partner, with an estimated value of US$54.8 billion in 2015.
