The conference will bring together more than 200 TPO representatives, policymakers and business leaders from over 70 economies.
The WTPO Awards recognise the role of institutions in the foreign trade sector as well as excellence across processes and practices adopted by TPOs in their export development initiatives.
The 2020 Awards particularly look at practices that have contributed to strengthening the competitiveness of exporting enterprises or have made a positive change in this regard.
Engineer Saed Al Awadi, CEO of Dubai Exports said the Agency being shortlisted for the Awards is an international acknowledgement of the Smart City vision of Dubai and the efforts to enable UAE enterprises to successfully compete in export markets globally.
Al Awadi added that the ‘Exporters Gateway’ portal launched by Dubai Exports last year to provide vital economic and trade data and information on sought-after UAE products has grown into a comprehensive knowledge platform facilitating exports from Dubai.
The innovative portal uses a mix of digital content and technical solutions to enable local companies enter international markets by providing them with updated information on potential markets, sectors and buyers as well as partnerships and tools that support competitive exports.
