Emirates has taken the initiative in
supporting the local business community with the recent seminar on its
procurement practices for young entrepreneurs.More than 50 representatives of companies associated with the Sheikh
Mohammed bin Rashid Establishment for Young Business Leaders (SMEs) attended
the seminar which was organised by Emirates’ Procurement & Logistics
department at the Emirates Aviation College.
In an unusual move, Emirates took the initiative of advising the
entreprenuers on its best practices for procurement, enabling them to
identify the Emirates Group’s criteria for a more speedy and efficient
SME members had previously approached private companies themselves to
outline their plans for the future and explain how they could join with them
in participating in the flourishing business community in Dubai.
In his presentation at the seminar, Adil Al Mulla, Emirates’ Manager
Procurement & Logistics, highlighted the quality, standards, and purchasing
capability of the Emirates Group.
Mr Al Mulla said: “Emirates decided to be pro-active and hold this seminar
for the members of the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Establishment for Young
Business Leaders (SMEs) to give them a clear understanding of our
procurement procedures, enabling them to interact smoothly with the company.
“Judging from their positive feedback from the seminar, we are delighted to
say that our move was appreciated, and we hope to hold more seminars of this
nature for other business groups within Dubai.”
A number of Procurement staff members held a question and answer session
afterwards to help new companies registering with the SME to gain an
understanding of the department’s processes and operations.
