The new business groups focus on companies operating in the manufacturing and welding sectors, electrical equipment and contracting cables and wires, and steel and metal trading.
The establishment of new business groups falls within the framework of the Chamber’s endeavors to enhance the private sector’s contribution to the sustainable development process, support the competitiveness of companies operating in the same sector, and improve their economic performance inside and outside the Emirate.
Mohammad Ali Rashid Lootah, Director General of Dubai Chambers, said: “Our goal in forming the latest business groups is to contribute to creating an ideal platform for transparent communication between the main parties in each sector, the accession of members of Dubai Chamber of Commerce to the new business groups reinforces its commitment to achieving further progress and contributing to supporting the economic development. We will continue to promote constructive dialogue between business groups, Dubai Chambers and relevant government agencies”.
