The president and chief executive officer of the Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Hamad Buamim, has called on Dubai’s business community to cooperate with relevant government authorities in implementing preventive and precautionary measures to counter the spread of the coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19).

In a video message to the private sector, Buamim urged firms to ensure the safety and health of their employees by asking them to stay at home and work remotely.

He also launched the "Be Safe. Work Smart" campaign in light of the UAE government’s appeal to its citizens and residents to help fight the spread of COVID-19 by participating in the #stayhome movement.

Buamim has called on the private sector to act with responsibility and professionalism, to protect employees, and to ensure business continuity.

The Dubai Chamber has already implemented a remote work plan, in coordination with relevant authorities. Employees have been provided with the latest technologies and solutions in order to maintain business continuity.

The smart services provided by the chamber include certificates of origin, attestations, membership services, studies, research and reports, business and legal services, issuance of ATA Carnet, Dubai Chamber's CSR Label, and the Business Groups and Councils services, in addition to the services available to economic and professional bodies.

The smart services provided by Dubai Chamber when it comes to membership include the issuance, renewal, and amendment of membership, according to the state-run news agency, Wam.

The chamber’s smart legal service provides legal representation and information, while members can get ratification of signatures, copies, and stamps through smart attestation services.
