Les petites et moyennes entreprises ont reçu plus du quart de tous les contrats en termes de valeur.

Expo 2020 Dubai awarded Dh6.8 billion ($1.8bn) worth of contracts to small and medium businesses, exceeding a 2016 commitment to award at least 20 per cent of direct and indirect spend to them.

Among the 3,245 contracts, 66 per cent, or 2,150, were SMEs, including 1,390 local businesses, the statement said. LINK TO ARTICLE
