DUBAI: The Heart and Hub of Middle East & Africa Market place
Dubai is the third largest re-export hub in the world and home to Jebel Ali port, one of the world’s largest commercial ports and among the top ten busiest, with more than 6,400 companies taking advantage of the free zone benefits.
The UAE’s global free trade agreements ensure solid ties with many of the world’s most established commercial nations as well as those which are rapidly developing and constantly seeking new resources to continue their growth.
For international businesses, both large and small, Dubai is the ideal platform for exporters to reach not just regional markets, but global economies.
The per capita consumption of seafood in the UAE is above average at 51.1kg.This is almost four times the worldwide average and one of the highest worldwide according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
When comparing the following figures from some of the other Middle Eastern markets, a clearer picture forms of the importance of the role that the fish industry plays in the Middle East in general and in the UAE in particular. Oman (36.7 kg/per year) Bahrain (16.9kg/per year),Mauritania (16.6 kg/per year),Qatar(16.5 kg/per year).
The Middle East is enjoying a growing population base, driving increased food consumption trends. Traditionally, per capita consumption of seafood has been high and with recent financial prosperity, increased tourism and education regarding the health benefits of consuming fish, total seafood consumption is increasing annually.
Modern transport and logistics practices have grown these markets from coastal areas to encompass substantial inland and remotely located populations. As a consequence, fresh and processed seafood products are now widely available throughout all Middle East countries.
