“Dubai Customs plays a pivotal role in boosting the UAE’s external trade through expanding economic partnerships and accords with other countries around the world. The Dubai Economic Agenda ‘D33”, launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, includes 100 transformative projects, with economic targets of doubling our foreign trade to reach $6.8 trillion and adding 400 cities as key trading partners.”

The Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce has been working to connect the Brazilian and Arab peoples to promote economic, social and cultural development, playing a pivotal role in developing the relationship between these two peoples over the years.

ABCC announced an annual increase of 25.71 percent in Brazilian exports to the Arab countries during the first ten months (10M) of 2022 at $14.47 billion from $11.51 billion.

Over the coming months, an additional increase in regional demand for Brazilian products is expected thanks to many factors, including a boost in tourism, said Mr. Osmar Chohfi, President of ABCC
