Dubai Skyline

In February 2022, the Dubai International Chambers board of directors approved a new strategy for the next three years (2022-2024), focused on strengthening Dubai’s position as a global business centre, attracting multinational companies to the emirate and supporting local companies with international expansion.

The goal is to:

  • Attract 50 multinational companies to Dubai within three years
  • Support the external expansion of 100 companies from Dubai to priority foreign markets within two years
  • Support and motivate multinational companies to list on the Dubai financial market

The strategy identifies 30 priority international markets that offer huge economic potential to expand the emirate’s trade partnerships, highlighting competitiveness in key sectors such as trade, infrastructure, logistics, digital economy, retail and manufacturing among others.

Objectives & Strategy

Message From Chairman

“His Highness Sheikh Mohammed has identified that international trade is at the centre of Dubai’s future economy and I am delighted to be leading the team at Dubai International Chamber to meet its vision of increasing trade between the emirate and the rest of the world.

The chamber is pivotal to meeting the challenges that lie ahead. The global pandemic has taught us the importance of creating new and resilient global supply chains and the importance of bilateral trade as the essential underpinning of tomorrow’s economy.

A main aspect of what we do is focused on identifying emerging markets of promise that can help Dubai grow, while enabling the emirate to reciprocate by helping these markets expand into new areas, with dubai as both the entry point and strategic base.

This is a certainly an exciting new era and I am looking forward to being at the helm of forging a new a direction and leading the team at Dubai International Chamber.”
