In a press conference held by Dubai Customs today, Ahmed Butti Ahmed, the Executive Chairman of ports, Customs &\'Free Zone Corporation , Director General of Dubai Customs , confirmed that these record results reflect the leverage and robust economy in the UAE in general, and Dubai in particular. He pointed out that there are a number of factors that contributed in achieving this growth; most importantly the high competitiveness in local market, the openness to markets world-wide, the growth in purchasing power, in addition to the distinctive higher quality of national products and the ascending level of services offered to importers, which played a significant role in increasing the volume of exports and finding other new markets. Butti explained that these figures include the statistics of direct foreign trade, free zones trade and warehouses trade indicating that the figures released by the Statistics Section at Dubai Customs have shown a growth in the direct trade in the same rate to amount Dh700 billion as compared to Dh576 billion in 2010, whereas the free zones trade increased 19 per cent to Dh383 billon as compared to Dh323 billion last year.

He added that Dubai modern infrastructure, the advanced services at sea and air ports together with the customs facilitations available to all land, sea and air customs ports have contributed considerably to achieve such positive results in Dubai foreign trade. He stressed that Dubai Customs is keen to continuously improve client service delivery standards in the manner that will maintain the gains achieved by the emirate as a key link for trade movement between east and west and enhance the country\'s ability to attract investors from everywhere.
