Dubai Chamber launches online marketplace for PPE


July 14, 2020 | By RetailME Bureau

The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry has launched an online marketplace that connects reliable buyers and sellers of personal protective equipment (PPE) and medical supplies.

Businesses and healthcare providers in the UAE looking for an easier way to source and secure PPE can now do so through Dubai Chamber’s newly launched Rapid Response Initiative (RRI). The online marketplace aims to meet a growing demand among businesses for these types of products as they comply with safety measures introduced by the government to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Companies that buy and sell PPE and medical equipment can register on the marketplace at no cost. The portal initially launched with 15 approved suppliers from the UAE and listed a wide range of products – including surgical and reusable facemasks and shields, safety goggles, hand sanitiser, disposable gloves, medical gowns and coveralls, ventilators and thermometers.

“This first-of-its-kind initiative supports Dubai Chamber’s efforts to enhance ease of doing business in Dubai and facilitate trade, while it also positions the emirate as a global smart city leveraging digital tools to help fight the spread of COVID-19,” said Dr. Belaid Rettab, senior director, economic research and sustainable business development sector, Dubai Chamber. “Businesses using the marketplace can benefit by reducing costs when buying PPE, generating new leads, building long-term partnerships with reliable suppliers. We encourage companies operating in this field to leverage the platform to capitalise on new business opportunities and boost their online exposure.”
