Dubai South and Dubai Customs seek greater integration to enhance trade
Dubai South has signed two Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with Dubai Customs to improve services in key business areas such as transport, aviation and logistics development.
The first MoU sets the coordination and development of linking the electronic system of both parties to facilitate the exchange of information regarding registered companies and facilitate the transaction for permits and other approvals.
The second MoU sets the agreement which will allow Dubai South's Sales Force system with Dubai Customs’ Mirsal II system to facilitate issuance, collection and transfer of documents pertaining to the entry and exit of local and imported goods as well as provide mutual support to achieve common objectives.
The agreements were signed by Khalifa Al Zaffin, executive chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation and Dubai South and Ahmed Mahboob Musabih, director of Dubai Customs.
They seek to strengthen partnership and cooperation between both parties by integrating initiatives that would enhance quality and excellence in the delivery of services.
“The signing of the agreements is important in creating a stimulating environment in line with the logistical developments in Dubai and helps in streamlining procedures for the logistics companies in Dubai South and provide them with the best services, as well as enhances our cooperation and coordination with Dubai Customs in ensuring legal trade and protecting borders,” said Khalifa Al Zaffin, executive chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation.
“We are confident that our partnership with Dubai Customs will strengthen our bilateral efforts to consolidate Dubai’s vision in making it one of the most important hubs in the world for ease of doing business, investments and entrepreneurship,” he added.
“We are keen to support the integration of services with strategic partners to ensure flexibility in procedures and ease of delivery of services, and thereby enhance the competitive advantages of Dubai in ease of doing business and attract new investments,” said Ahmed Mahboob Musabih, director of Dubai Customs. “This agreement further supports initiatives that drive economic growth in line with long-term development goals set under the UAE Centennial 2071 in accordance with the directives of the country’s wise leadership.”
