Musabih said: 
“We have stood hand in hand in the face of the pandemic which wreaked havoc on global economy. It is very important we share and exchange knowledge and experiences among us. Dubai Customs has invested heavily in a smart technological infrastructure and easily managed to continue its operations through remote working and online meetings. In the field, inspectors were equipped with safety gear and equipment to ensure their safety.”

Smart intelligence technologies help detect suspicious cargo coupled with smart scanners that can do the job without any human interference.

The meeting covered many important points including the postponement of the AEO Conference to February 2021 due to the outbreak of Covid-19.
