Dubai Economy to bring latest e-services and apps to GITEX 2017

Dubai Economy is participating in GITEX Technology Week 2017 being held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. The event kicked off on Sunday and runs through Thursday.
Dubai Economy is showcasing its innovative e-services and applications for visitors. The participation is in line with the efforts of Dubai Economy to connect with leading technology companies and government entities as well as to update businessmen and investors with the latest developments and services provided.
Mohammad Khalifa Al-Qaizi, director of IT department, Dubai Economy, said: “As government entities regularly attend GITEX Technology Week, this year Dubai Economy and its agencies will be bringing the latest of our digital and smart solutions introduced for businessmen and investors in Dubai, making it easier to do business in the most competitive and sustainable environment.”
A notable display from Dubai Economy at GITEX Technology Week 2017 will be the “Smart Lounge,” which is a self-service experience for customers supported by world-class information and communications technology (ICT) tools and capabilities. Visitors will also learn about the “Business in Dubai” smart application for business registration and licensing, as well as the “Instant Licence” initiative that enables investors to get a business license in one-step and within five minutes.
A special team from the Business Registration & Licensing (BRL) sector in Dubai Economy will provide an overview of the “e-Trader” program that enables Emirati and GCC national residents of the UAE to conduct business activities on social networking sites. The “Dubai Business Map,” an interactive guide linked to the Dubai economy database, which takes investors through area-wise economic activities and economic performance indicators across Dubai, will also feature among the displays.
Dubai SME, the agency of Dubai Economy mandated to develop the SME sector, will showcase its Dubai SME Smart System, which enables SMEs to register as members through the official portal www.sme.ae.
Marwan Al-Nasser, senior manager of GPP at Dubai SME, said: “Dubai SME in collaboration with the Executive Council of Dubai will highlight the e-procurement portal, the official online channel for companies to interact with buyers in different government agencies, at GITEX Technology Week 2017.
The system allows Dubai SME members to register at the Dubai eGovernment. Members will then be directed to the smart supply page and asked to identify their business sector so that they can receive alerts on tenders concerned.”
