(MENAFN) An investigation announced by Dubai Chamber draw attention to the important role that nations from the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) can improve the UAE’s food safety.
The announcement of the investigation was before the first-ever Global Business Forum (GBF) ASEAN, planned by Dubai Chamber with EXPO2020 Dubai on 8th and 9th December, 2021, at EXPO 2020 Dubai.
The meeting that is going to take place under the theme "The New Frontiers", will discover the altering dynamics of ASEAN nations and examine the chances to upturn two-sided trade, business and investment amid the areas.
The report that is labeled "Dubai Food and Beverage Trade with ASEAN", studies the parts where the 10 ASEAN member states can participate in the UAE’s food and beverage (F&B) subdivision, something that the chamber focuses on its importance due to the UAE imports around 85 percent of the whole used food.
According to Hamad Buamim, Leader and CEO of Dubai Chamber "A key pillar of the UAE’s National Food Security Strategy 2051 is to diversify the country’s international sources of food - an imperative that was brought home during the coronavirus pandemic that had a major impact on global supply chains. As a country with a growing population and one that cannot grow its food at scale, identifying markets that can supply us with produce is a national priority. ASEAN countries represent one such important market," also noting that "This new analysis that Dubai has compiled aims to show where the gaps in food trade lie, with the report aiming to be beneficial for ASEAN-based traders and importers and exporters located in Dubai and the UAE. Along with climate change, food security is the world’s most pressing global issue and identifying key areas of improving bilateral trade in food is vital to ensure adequate food supplies for all."
