He added that 2022 is forecast to be a record and exceptional year for member companies’ trade performance, as the three chambers operating under Dubai Chambers – Dubai Chamber of Commerce, Dubai International Chamber and Dubai Chamber of Digital Economy – align their efforts to support Dubai’s business community.
