Ever-evolving consumer behavior and the growth of e-Commerce are some of the factors that have altered the course of global retail.
Purchasing goods electronically has become the new norm, forcing retailers to remodel their businesses to maintain competitiveness and efficiency. Also, the growth of national e-Commerce is evident due to the government initiatives and the drive towards the digitalisation of trade. Dubai’s pivotal position on the global trade map and its extensive logistics networks, coupled with government support has contributed to the growth of the sector. Aligning with this , the emirates’ e-Commerce strategy was launched in 2019 by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council. The strategy aims to strengthen Dubai’s status as a global logistics hub and accelerate its online commerce growth, with EZDubai as the frontrunner to enable the shift.
