Dubai Chamber adds more than 8,000 members in 2015
The Dubai Chamber now has more than 177,000 member businesses, making the organization one of the largest chambers of commerce in the Middle East and North Africa region.
The new membership numbers speak to Dubai’s rising profile as an attractive global business destination. Visits from a record-breaking 335 international delegations stand as evidence of the Emirate’s draw for international investors.
The chamber opened its fourth international representative office in Ghana and will soon open another two in Mozambique and Brazil as part of the expansion strategy for emerging markets of the world. The goal is to open new market opportunities for Dubai Chamber member businesses.
Hamad Buamim, the Dubai Chamber’s CEO, said international delegations that visit Dubai see the advantages of doing business in the Emirate, drawing in new members.
“This rising trend in the Emirate’s international profile as a leading center of trade and finance and the global investors’ confidence in Dubai’s lucrative economic sectors, which are led by trade, logistics, tourism and finance, are behind the foreign companies’ desire to set up base in Dubai and expand their global business activities through the Emirate,” Buamim said.
