Dubai Chamber registers 8,830 new companies in H1, 2015

(Dubai) – The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry has registered a substantial growth in its membership base, which the non-profit business facilitator accredits to Dubai’s rising profile as a sound business destination and its attractiveness to global investors.
Between January and June, a total of 8,830 new companies joined Dubai Chamber which can be attributed to a record number of 335 international delegation visits to the Chamber. This brought the total number of members to over 177,000. These numbers, according to a recent report on the Chamber’s half-year activities, strengthened the organisation’s position as one of the largest chambers of commerce in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region Also, as part of its global expansion strategy in emerging markets of the world, Dubai Chamber opened its fourth international representative office in the city of Accra in Ghana and is preparing to open another two in Mozambique and Brazil soon, with the aim to open new market opportunities for its members.
Hamad Buamim, President and CEO, Dubai Chamber, said that when these international delegations come to Dubai, the Chamber highlights the advantages of doing business in Dubai and the attractive investment climate it offers. This is a crucial reason for the 8,800 new members in H1 2015.
