Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) plans to open an office in Iraqi Kurdistan during the first quarter of 2014.
Hamad Buamim (pictured), DCCI president and CEO, told Gulf Business:
“Kurdistan is a market that is experiencing considerable growth …
“Iraq as a whole, given its rebuilding efforts, has significant potential for Dubai businesses to increase trade and investment and the stability of the Kurdistan region offers a suitable base.”
DCCI added 7,153 new members in the first six months of 2013, with its total member count reaching 145,000 by the end of June 2013.
Dubai Chamber members’ exports and re-exports amounted to Dhs145.2 billion between January and June 2013, compared to Dhs136.2 billion during the same period in 2012.
