The Ajman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) issued 19,008 certificates of origin worth more than AED4.3 billion ($1.17 billion) in the first half of 2022, compared to 16,768 certificates worth AED4.1 billion issued in the first half of 2021, with a growth rate of 13%.
Abdullah Al Muwaiji, Chairman of ACCI, said that Ajman has many supporting potentials that directly contribute to export and re-export growth, including advanced infrastructure and road network, license flexibility and the availability of logistics services, in addition to the ease and speed of handling at the port of Ajman, according to a report by WAM.
He revealed that Libya topped the list of top export and re-export countries, followed by Saudi Arabia and then Egypt. Ajman’s most exported products included petroleum derivatives, mineral fuels, and seafood.
The Ajman Chamber is keen on diversifying service channels and providing fast and flexible services, he said, adding that the application for the certificate of origin can be done through the ACCI website or by visiting the service center of its headquarters.
ACCI has published a series of trade reports for its members, traders and industrial business owners, to identify export opportunities available in global markets, which contribute to increased production local and export growth.
This contributes to the “10×10” program – the country’s economic export development program, targeting ten global markets and a ten percent annual increase in exports to these markets.
