Keeping in sync with the needs of business, marketplaces are also evolving.
A prime case in point, is Dubai Global Connect (DGC), an initiative by the Investment Corporation of Dubai (the investment arm of the Government of Dubai).
DGC is a 1 million sq. ft wholesale trade initiative being developed as part of the logistics hub that’s growing in Dubai South (close to the new international airport). Making the most of Dubai’s central global location where you can access 2/3rd’s of the world’s population within an 8-hr flight distance, DGC provides for an accessible reference point where buyers and sellers can meet ‘in the middle’.
DGC will solely be focused on the food, fashion, and furniture sectors as it aims to cater to UK companies looking for easier access to the lucrative emerging markets of MENA and the APAC region. It will have permanent showrooms, exhibition halls, purpose-built warehouses, office space, an innovation hub all supported by a digital platform to connect sellers and buyers online.
With the UK being in the top 10 global exporters to Asia across these sectors, there is much to gain from Dubai’s proximity to these countries. For British firms looking to have a strong presence in emerging markets, DGC could provide a single answer.
