Business Licences in Dubai See Rise of 61%


Dubai, UAE : 30 May 2010

Dubai’s Department of Economic Development has seen a 61% increase in licences issued since April 2009.

The bulk of the 1,393 new licences, 1,060 in all, were given in the commercial sector, with ready-to-wear clothing businesses topping the list in this area.  The professional category of businesses saw 305 licences issued, with the restaurant trade leading the way.

The DED’s Director General, Sami Al Qamzi, said the number of new businesses were evidence of the ‘robust performance’ of the Dubai economy and of the successful approach of the Dubai government to encouraging ‘various business sectors’ to grow.
