So basically, the custodianship of developing the economy of Dubai lies with DED. They have numerous of initiatives and also agencies under the department.The DED in Dubai (and the UAE in general) is well known as the place you to go to pay or renew your business license for your company, and to a good extent, also pay for your fines or penalties that one might have incurred during the year.
Now the department is undertaking this initiative to better communicate with the business community, across all industries. To enable the project, it is vital that the we reach out to various business bodies and interest groups such as business councils, professional, trade and industry associations. We will start seeking out their feedback on the rationale for closer collaboration between with the DED, and also look at the key areas that the roles of these entities have, and explore initiatives to tackle challenges as well as enhance value.
Its going to be a lot of work, but very excited to be part of it as I’ll get the chance to meet the leading players from across all the industries here in Dubai. I’m particularly interested to see the reaction that the people would have and also hear about their thoughts on this project.
