Dubai: The Middle East will have its first-e-Shopping Mall soon, it was revealed at the Gitex Technology Week on Tuesday, offering a major boost to the e-commerce industry.

Backed by Dubai’s Department of Economic Development (DED), Tejuri, the e-Shopping Mall will build on the success of Tejari FZE, the B2B online portal that pioneered supply management technologies and professional services over the past decade, Tejari said in a statement, adding that the e-Mall will empower retailers, SME businesses and consumers.

Tejari further said that the official launch date for the e-Mall would be announced soon.

Suhail Al Banna, chief executive of Tejari FZE, said in a statement that the move is a step in the direction of using technology to narrow the gap between the retailer and the consumer. More info
