The “Invest in Dubai” platform was developed by Smart Dubai and the Dubai Department of Economic Development, under the supervision of the General Secretariat of The Executive Council of Dubai.
H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has launched a specialized platform to create opportunities for investors and consolidate Dubai’s position in the global investment landscape.
The new “Invest in Dubai” portal, which is considered to be the largest one-stop-shop platform of its kind by enabling investors to obtain trade licenses and launch their business easily in a matter of minutes, is a reflection of Dubai’s leadership in using smart solutions to enhance the Emirate’s investment environment.
The integrated portal for doing business in the Emirate was launched by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed at the meeting of The Executive Council and in the presence of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and H.H. Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
“The confidence that international investors have placed in our emirate stems from its agile economy, solid legislative environment, and robust, investor-friendly infrastructure,” H.H. Sheikh Hamdan said in a statement. “Dubai is a city that is constantly renewing itself, offering a fertile growth environment for investors from across the world. It has created an integrated investment ecosystem powered by advanced technology and designed to support constant development, economic growth and efficiency.”
The Dubai Department of Economic Development will be administering the platform, which can be accessed on invest.dubai.ae. The centralized platform offers users various services which cover the entire business cycle, assisting businesses in searching for opportunities, registering trade names, getting initial approvals to issue a licence, ensuring all government requirements are met, and obtaining trade licenses, as well as government permits and approvals- all while eliminating the need to physically visit any service cente
