The business registration and licensing (BRL) sector in the Dubai department of economic development (DED or Dubai Economy) and US e-commerce giant Amazon recently launched a new programme to support DED Trader license holders by providing interactive e-learning content to help them thrive in the digital economy and grow their businesses online.
DED Trader is issued by Dubai Economy to license freelancers in their place of residence in Dubai as well as business activities that operate online or on social networking sites.
The programme will offer access to the Amazon Seller University, which provides a series of training videos and resources that will help participant’s master key tools and applications to build their brand and expand their businesses to reach millions of customers via Amazon.ae.
“Dubai Economy strives to deliver solutions that contribute to enhance the ease of doing business in Dubai and expanding growth, in addition to maintaining a sustainable economy that reflects the emirate’s position as a global economic destination,” said Omar Al Mehairi, director of development and follow-up division in BRL sector in a press release.
“The continuous partnerships between the governmental and private sector will raise the level of efficiency and provide a seamless service environment for the business community as per highest international standards. Dubai Economy aims to accelerate the implementation and growth of e-commerce initiatives and promote innovation and technology integration within the local business community,” added Al Mehairi.
Amazon will curate a dedicated storefront on Amazon.ae to showcase products available from DED Trader license holders. Once the businesses are registered to sell on Amazon.ae, they will have the opportunity to access Amazon Account Managers who will work closely with them to offer strategic advice and insights to help them sustain and grow their business.
