According to recent data released by Dubai Customs, in parallel with the UAE-Japan Strategic Business Forum, held by the Ministry of Economy in Tokyo from March 6-7, aluminum tops Dubai's exports to Japan at AED 2.519 billion, accounting for 93.69 percent of the emirate's total exports to the Japanese market.

'Japan is one of Dubai's major trading partners and their bilateral trade is gaining more and more importance as Dubai advances in the deployment of high-tech technologies, robots and artificial intelligence, an industry where Japan excels as one of the world’s top producing countries,' said Ahmed Abdul Salam Kazim, Director, Strategy and Corporate Excellence, Dubai Customs.
