As part of its efforts to offer the best of services to the business community and to enhance their communication with the various business councils, the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry is hosting a Corporate Majlis on the sidelines of the first Dubai Chamber Ramadan Festival running at Dubai World Trade Centre, throughout the Holy Month.
The Corporate Majlis in its entirety is providing an ideal platform for an increasing number of representatives from different business groups and councils to network with business associates and new comers during the Iftar and Suhoor get-togathers.In light of the Corporate Majlis which receives a large number of delegates and their guests daily, Hamad Buamim, Director General, Dubai Chamber, stated that the Chamber came up with this innovative idea of providing yet another platform for the business community to network and build up new alliances during Ramadan. This initiative also highlights Dubai Chamber’s year-long efforts that look at creating new business networking opportunities for its vast network of stakeholders.Buamim further stressed that the purpose of the Ramadan Festival is of course to promote communications between individual businesses and the various business councils and groups as well as to involve them into social causes during the Holy Month.
