Business Groups and Councils

To better help our members and companies in Dubai, we have facilitated the creation of business groups and councils in Dubai

We efficiently help our 245,000+ members and companies in Dubai operate in a favourable business environment. We have facilitated the creation of business groups in Dubai that are divided by industry as well as business councils that are divided by country. Through these groups and councils, we aim to boost economic co-operation and enhance commerce between the business communities of Dubai, as well as the bilateral trade relations between countries.

As a member of Dubai Chamber, you can join the groups and councils by connecting with the respective organisations that interest you.
