Dubai Wholesale City is now accepting applications from companies and traders who are interested in reserving space at the integrated development that was built on 500 million square feet at a cost of AED 30 billion, reported Trade Arabia.

The project’s developers have stated that the city is expected to strengthen the status of the UAE as a key market in international trade.

The project is expected to have a critical role in the global trade sector, which is expected to grow about $4.9 billion in the next five years, stated Khaleej Times.

The project also targets retailers who are willing to expand into wholesale and increase their investments within the GCC region.
The development is located near Al Maktoum International Airport, Jebel Ali Port, highways and Etihad Rail, and is connected to all four major means of transportation.

The development will present three designated areas, including its wholesale avenues, cross-docking facilities, and wholesale markets that offer visitors a first-hand experience of the development, which will be showcased at Cityscape Global.
