Dubai Exports has participated in the ‘WorldFood Moscow’ exhibition for the third year in a row. The exhibition featured a 52-member team comprising local exporters and manufacturers joining the UAE pavilion under the Dubai Exports
umbrella.
Over the past three years, Dubai Exports has facilitated and supported an increasing number of exporters and manufacturers from varied industry sectors to attend trade fairs abroad as part of achieving its strategic objective of connecting UAE firms to promising markets. The Dubai Exports overseas trade office in Moscow provides comprehensive assistance for UAE companies to penetrate the Russian market and the number of participants attending WorldFood Moscow this year along with Dubai Exports itself has seen a 45% increase.
The exhibition provided an opportunity for the local food trade to display its world-class capabilities to importers and suppliers across Russia, CIS and other markets as 1,522 firms from 62 countries and over 30,000 visitors were at WorldFood Moscow this year. A wide range of food products including grocery, frozen food, confectionary, canned food, oil, fats and sauces, dairy products, meat and drinks, poultry, fish and seafood, fruit and vegetable, tea and coffee and organic and health food were displayed at the event.
Mohammed Ali Al Kamali, Deputy CEO of Dubai Exports, said, “Russia is a strategic market, and, along with CIS countries, it can play a major role in enabling Dubai to achieve greater economic diversification and connecting further to global trade. Dubai Exports opened its overseas office in Moscow to leverage the trade potential in these regions and the results so far point to a significant growth in the number of goods and services exported through Dubai to Russia.”
Al Kamali added that the Dubai Exports office in Moscow has seen tremendous interest from exporters and manufacturers in the UAE since opening in 2015, particularly from the food and beverage industry. “The Moscow office organised a trade mission to St. Petersburg in Russia for more than 17 UAE companies from varied sectors, including food and beverage, manufacturing, cosmetics and telecommunications. The office has also assisted with more than 35 requests from both members and international buyers in the second quarter of 2016.”
