Dubai has received widespread appreciation from Customs authorities and diplomatic bodies globally for its proactive role in combating drug trafficking. The specific acknowledgment goes to Dubai Customs for its robust international collaboration with relevant agencies in addressing drug smuggling and countering transnational organized crimes.

The joint efforts led to a remarkable achievement - the confiscation of 2.8 tonnes of narcotics by customs authorities in various foreign nations. Dubai Customs has been instrumental in facilitating this success through active international cooperation and information exchange, particularly in tracking over 1,100 international shipments across Asia, Europe, and Oceania throughout the year 2023.

A noteworthy accomplishment within this collaborative framework was the prevention of the smuggling of approximately 538 kilograms of pure heroin in a shipment from an Asian country to Europe.

Ahmed Mahboob Musabih, Director General of Dubai Customs and CEO of Ports, Customs, and Free Zone Corporation, emphasized the commitment of Dubai Customs to strengthen relationships between the UAE and countries worldwide. The primary focus is on facilitating foreign trade, supporting flexible supply chains, and enhancing the UAE's role as a global trade hub.

Furthermore, Dubai Customs is dedicated to robust collaboration to combat transnational crimes and prevent the trafficking of prohibited substances. The ultimate goal is to create a society free from the dangers of drug toxicity and protect its people from the consequences of this hazardous menace.

Musabih commended the efforts of Dubai Customs' teams and their collaboration with international authorities in thwarting smuggling operations. He highlighted their rigorous security follow-up, resulting in the implementation of precise and specialized procedures for drug control within and outside the country.

Under the leadership of Dubai Customs, the 2021-2026 plan focuses on being a globally leading secure customs. The objectives include active international efforts and collaboration with customs authorities worldwide to prevent the trafficking of prohibited substances. The government department and its teams leverage accumulated expertise and high efficiency, supported by intelligent and innovative systems for monitoring and tracking suspicious shipments.

Mohammed Abdullah Al Suwaidi, from Dubai Customs’ Intelligence Department, highlighted the department's achievements in fostering productive and constructive collaborations to prevent the smuggling of prohibited items on local, regional, and global fronts. The success is attributed to the department's efforts in strengthening ties with relevant entities, sharing crucial information, and actively participating in numerous joint operations worldwide.

The recognition for Dubai Customs' constructive collaboration extends to the Japanese Consulate, the Canadian Consulate, and certificates of appreciation from the German Consulate, as well as from the Regional Office in the Middle East (RELO) and other diplomatic entities. The accolades underscore Dubai Customs' international acclaim and its pivotal role in global efforts against drug trafficking.
