The Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry has formed an advisory board comprised of Fortune 500 companies operating in Dubai to help represent the interests of the business community, according to Dubai Chamber’s President and CEO, Hamad Buamim.
In an interview with Arabian Business, Buamim said that the advisory board will “address challenges facing companies in the emirate.”
“Once this council officially launches its activities later this year, we believe that it will support the growth of Dubai’s economy and take public-private sector cooperation to another level,” he added.
Buamim did not reveal which companies and multinational corporations operating in Dubai will participate in the panel.
Earlier this year, Dubai Chamber also launched a pilot phase of the Chamber’s ‘Business Voice Portal’, a digital platform designed to streamline public-private sector cooperation.
“Through the interactive portal, members of business groups and business councils in Dubai can share valuable insights and feedback on draft regulation with the aim of ensuring a favourable business environment in the emirate,” Buamim explained.
Businesses can use the portal to identify challenges and review laws and policies that can potentially impact businesses. The portal can also be used to communicate their views and recommendations to relevant government departments.
“The platform provides channels for business groups and councils to discuss matters internally and participate in open and public forums, where proposals are submitted directly to Dubai Chamber,” Buamim said.
The portal also provides users with access to Dubai ChamberFor all the latest business news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
