Chambers of Commerce & Industry
Dubai Chambers is the engine of economic advancement and growth in Dubai. The organization works to create new growth opportunities for businesses and drive sustainable economic development and transformation in the emirate in line with Dubai’s ambitious strategies, and Dubai Economic Agenda (D33).
To deliver these ambitions, Dubai Chambers’ commitments are focused on improving the business environment in Dubai, improving the effectiveness of advocacy, attracting foreign investment and international companies to the emirate, supporting Dubai companies with global expansion and growing Dubai’s digital economy.
These strategic priorities are outlined in the Chambers strategy 2022-2024 which includes a number of targets to achieve, notably, to attract multinational companies to Dubai, support the external expansion of 100 companies from Dubai to priority foreign markets within two years, and support and motivate multinational companies to list on the Dubai Financial Market.
Under a unique organizational structure model, Dubai Chambers encompasses three highly focused chambers – Dubai Chamber of Commerce, Dubai Chamber of Digital Economy, and Dubai International Chamber. Each of the chambers follows a bold and specialised approach to driving economic growth, meeting the changing needs of businesses, and elevating the emirate’s position as a global trade hub.
