Hamad Buamim, Director General, Dubai Chamber , as well as heads of business councils and groups, a host of VIP guests representing the business community in Dubai and members of the local media.
In his welcome address, Al Ghurair informed the gathering about Dubai Chamber 's commitment to enhance the economic growth of Dubai by supporting the business communities through new initiatives of reaching key emerging markets as well as opening of first overseas representative offices in Azerbaijan and Ethiopia by the year's end which he said will soon be followed by 20 similar offices the world over.
"In July, our members' exports and re-exports which valued at AED 24.4 billion recorded 16.4% year-on-year growth and 7.6% month-on-month growth in comparison to 2011 as 5,254 exporters despatched goods to 170 markets of the world," said Al Ghurair.

"There is more on the horizon as we are preparing to take further trade missions to key markets like Azerbaijan to discuss the opening of our satellite office and efforts to increase trade and investment ties with Central Asia and the Caucasus.
