Dubai Chamber of Commerce was established in 1965 by a decree issued by the late Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, who realised the important role that a chamber of commerce could play in supporting the national economy. Thereby, Dubai Chamber of Commerce started its activities with 450 members and a 12-member board of directors. The number of members increased to reach more than 275,000 by end of 2021, representing all economic sectors.
Dubai Chamber of Commerce continually streamline its processes to make it easier for companies to set up their business in the Emirate, furthering Dubai’s mission to be an international business hub. By coping with the economic changes worldwide, Dubai Chamber of Commerce takes a pioneering position not only in the UAE and in the GCC, but globally too, by acting as an information and research centre, providing business documentation, offering legal services, facilitating networking opportunities and delivering almost every conceivable business solution.
