Media Release: Discover top tips to build a successful business in Dubai


THE Government of Dubai, Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing will be holding a business seminar with Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce.

Local businesses are invited to find out the inside track on doing business in Dubai at The Glynhill Hotel on the 30th March 2012, 12-2pm.

The presentation is part of a series of seminars, chaired by the Government of Dubai, Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) around the United Kingdom.

Says a spokesperson: “Dubai has long earned the reputation of being one of the world’s most desirable business destinations; its positive economic policy and ambitious growth plans have underpinned the introduction of an equally progressive infrastructure, with first-class facilities across the board, from telecoms to ports and aviation.

“Dubai is relentlessly continuing its march towards becoming a global business hub – be it banking, finance, trade, tourism, aviation, hospitality or shopping sectors. All the economic indicators for the past year have indicated an upward trend, witnessing a stronger recovery in all fields of economy.

“A study by fDi magazine crowned Dubai as the ‘Middle East city of the Future 2010/11′, underlining the emirate’s premier status as a preferred foreign direct investment destination.

“Dubai ranked exceptionally well across all categories achieving top positions in economic potential, infrastructure and business friendliness.

“The report also observed that Dubai scored highest in the region in terms of the number of FDI projects from 2003 to June 2010, establishing the city’s leading role as a preferred destination.

“The city scored a perfect 100 in terms of economic potential, evaluated on the basis of population, total number of patents, GDP, total number of FDI projects, number of companies in R&D, number of FDI mega-projects, global competitiveness and other key parameters.”

The spokesperson added: “Dubai also clinched the perfect 100 score in infrastructure measured by the number of international destinations served, airlines served, upload and download speeds, port size, time to export and import, internet users, logistics performance index and e-government web measure index, among others.

“Another study – issued by CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) – put Dubai among the top ten most popular business locations in the world, with almost 56 per cent of the world’s largest companies operating in the emirate.”

Ian Scott, UK and Ireland director for the Government of Dubai Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, feels Dubai has much to share with Chambers of Commerce.

He said: “Dubai is committed to retaining its position as one of the world’s leading business destinations with a diverse offering of unparalleled facilities and amenities for companies both large and small.

“The Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing conducts these seminars with a view to educating members of trade organisations around the UK about Dubai’s unique offering to enterprise and explaining how to go about setting up in the emirate to further stimulate growth in the region and expand UK businesses.”
