Dubai, UAE 6th April, 2019:   Director of Dubai Customs made an evening tour to the Customs Declaration Management and the Control Room of the Customs Intelligence Department. He confirmed that Part of Dubai Customs role is to maintain security and safety through securing the emirate’s borders and entry points and protecting society from the hazards of illegitimate trade. “Serve People” is one of the ten commandments of governance set by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

“With around-the-clock professional and highly competent control and monitor, the control room serves a great purpose of maintaining security and responding quickly to any reports and complaints” he said.
