The Intellectual Property Rights Management of the Commercial Compliance & Consumer Protection sector at the Department of Economic Development in Dubai has honored Huawei Consumer Business Group's UAE team for its continuous support and cooperation with the UAE government.
The DED team visited Huawei's head office in Dubai to present Huawei officials with a certificate of gratitude for helping manage IP rights and combat counterfeit goods in the retail sector in the UAE.
"IP management is a very important aspect in the modern world and at DED, we do not tolerate any kind of commercial fraud. To achieve this, we rely on strict compliance and cooperation from commercial companies to protect the consumers and we wish to extend our gratitude to Huawei CBG for their continuous support to combat IP issues and fake goods. Our partnership has strengthened over the years and we expect it to grow stronger in the future," Ibrahim Behzad, Director of Intellectual Property Protection division at DED said.
IP is a topic broadly discussed amongst companies and consumers in the UAE as it impacts business revenues and customer satisfaction. Counterfeit goods worth hundreds of millions of dirhams are seized by DED officials every year. These raids are part of DED's campaign to protect both brands and consumers.
