UAE e-commerce leads the region: Study


The UAE is the most advanced e-commerce market in the Middle East, according to a study by Dubai Economy and Visa.

The report estimates that e-commerce transactions in the country will hit AED 59 billion this year and grow 23 per cent annually.

Many global e-commerce businesses are looking to expand to the UAE.

Initiatives such as emPay digital wallet, launched by Dubai Government offer easy access to digital transaction platforms.
