Dubai Customs attributed the high performance of foreign trade sector to
Dubai's advanced infrastructure and forward-thinking policies.

major role in supporting foreign trade in Dubai, whose government is working
to provide the best service and facilities to their clients as part of an
integrated plan to turn it into a world-class model for economic growth.

integrated strategy in place to develop external trade performance."

expanding our existing ones," he said.
