"For centuries our ancestors have depended on sail dhows and camel caravans in their spice and perfume trade. It is now our turn to take this legacy forward and build on their experience and wisdom. It is our duty to open our doors and share with the world everything that is mutually beneficial for our nations, our people and our businesses.
We raise the slogan of friendship through trade and consequently we feel the duty that awaits businessmen to achieve this noble goal for the interest of nations."
Saif Ahmed Majid Al Ghurair - Founder - 1981
