The Dubai Chamber of Commerce has announced the organization of a cosmetics certification roundtable held at Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra, working on ways in which to promote the emirates strategy to make Dubai the Capital of Islamic Economy in the world.
Omar Khan, Director of International Offices for the Dubai Chamber, said, “The roundtable fittingly shed light on the importance of halal and organic certification through presentations highlighting the possibility of increased trade volumes between Ghana and Dubai and a rise in demand for Ghanaian produce in the emirate and their subsequent re-export to the regional markets.”
Attendees included the Ghana Export Promotion Centre, Ghana Investment Promotion Centre and Ghana Free Zone Board. Other notable participants included the Emirates Standardisation & Meteorology Authority, Ghana Shea Alliance and makers of Shea nuts and butters, cashew and cocoa beans.
As part of the discussions, members looked at certification for halal food certification relating to food cosmetics as well as educating Ghana raw agro material exporters on how they would have to adjust working practices in order to bring their products to Dubai.
