Officially launched at Gitex 2016 by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of the Executive Council, the AEO program delivers a comprehensive set of benefits to certified partners including faster clearance, preferential customs treatment and dedicated Key Account Manager. It also establishes strategic partnerships with other AEO programs around the world through Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRA) which will facilitate global market access to AEO certified local traders. Potential authorized economic operators could include manufacturers, importers, exporters, brokers, carriers, consolidators, intermediaries, ports, airports terminal operators, integrated operators, warehouses and distributors.

Ahmed Mahboob musabih, Director of Dubai Customs applauded this achievement and said: “It reflects Dubai Customs strategy and vision of boosting the UAE's reputation and supporting it on global competitiveness indexes through the innovation of new services and products to insure clients' happiness and attraction of more investments into the country”.  

On her part, Al Swaidi pointed out that Dubai Customs is the first customs department in the region to implement the AEO. 
Al Firdan said: “This is part of Dubai Customs plans and vision to lead customs innovation worldwide. Winning awards is not an end it's a means to spread knowledge and improve the business”.
