Dubai Multi-Commodities Centre calls global ban for hand-carry gold on flights, DMCC,UAE

Dubai Multi-Commodities Centre (DMCC) has extended its call for a global ban on hand-carry gold on flights to combat smuggling.

In a recent LinkedIn post, DMCC’s CEO Ahmed bin Sulayem expressed concern and stated “Despite raising the issue of hand-carry gold over five years ago and having hosted two webinars on the matter, I’m deeply concerned to witness the lack of urgency being exhibited on this matter. It’s time for a complete global ban on hand-carry gold.”

 The ban consideration wouldn’t be difficult for the aviation industry considering its adaptability during Covid-19 pandemic.

 “It’s a global issue in which we are all involved, so we have to take these matters seriously and understand that the task ahead is not impossible. Let it be known that any resistance to positive industry reforms will not come from Dubai or the UAE and that any encounters will be flagged and investigated.” he further added.
