Dubai Customs continues to boost its relationships with foreign diplomatic corps aiming for more growth in Dubai’s trade with the world. In this respect Director Ahmed Mahboob Musabih has welcomed Oleksandr Balanutsa, Ukrainian Consul-General in Dubai, to explore means of strengthening bilateral cooperation to deepen economic and commercial ties that bind the United Arab Emirates to the Republic of Ukraine.
Mr. Balanutsa highly praised Dubai Customs for its constant efforts to support the rising UAE-Ukraine bilateral trade. He particularly underlined the high quality of customs services and facilitations it offers to Ukrainian traders and investors, which greatly benefits the building up of a solid relationship between the two friendly nations.
The Consul-General said Ukraine is seeking to utilize the UAE’s leading development experience, noting that the establishment of a Ukrainian business council is underway to better link Ukrainian companies with local and federal economic bodies.
"Dubai Customs is very keen on promoting cooperation and coordination with Ukrainian authorities and business community, as we aim to take the flow of trade between the UAE and Ukraine to promising new heights for the best interests of our nations," said Musabih.
He added that Dubai-Ukraine trade reached AED 1.13 billion in 2015 with imports contributing AED 782 million, exports AED 108 million and re-exports AED 241 million.
