Businesses can register to the marketplace, where they can potentially reduce costs, generate new leads and build long-term partnerships.
Dubai’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry has launched a comprehensive online marketplace for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) under a Response Initiative (RRI) to growing demands amidst the Coronavirus pandemic. The online marketplace serves as a tool to connect buyers and sellers of PPEs and medical supplies.
Both buyers and sellers of PPEs are eligible to register on the marketplace free-of-charge, and the range of products – initially sourced by 15 approved UAE suppliers – include surgical and reusable face masks and face shields, safety goggles, disposable gloves, hand sanitisers, thermometers, ventilators and medical gowns and coveralls.
“This first-of-its-kind initiative supports Dubai Chamber’s effort to enhance ease of doing business in Dubai and facilitate trade, while it also positions the emirate as a global smart city leveraging digital tools to help fight the spread of COVID-19,” commented Dr. Belaid Rettab, Senior Director of Economic Research and Sustainable Business Development at Dubai Chamber. “Businesses using the marketplace can benefit by reducing costs when buying PPE, generating new leads and building long-term partnerships with reliable suppliers. We encourage companies operating in this field to leverage the platform to capitalise on new business opportunities and boost their online exposure.”
This initiative aims to aid business in dealing with the detrimental economic impacts of the pandemic, and takes steps towards the digitisation of trade in Dubai. Companies looking to buy or sell products can register by clicking here.
