Dubai To Launch 50 Offices Globally To Promote Commerce And Attract Investments

Dubai is planning to establish a network of 50 representative offices in many different countries in a bid to become a leading business center in the world. The major focus of the global network which is to be established, is to attract investors by showcasing the rapid and diversified growth of Dubai. This will also present Dubai based companies with international exposure and help them to successfully expand their operations to more than 30 markets.

The commercial representative offices would offer services including market research and details on legislative processes to assist businesses in making strategic decisions. Additionally, they will offer logistical support to Dubai-based businesses looking to grow internationally. It will also provide studies on business opportunities in vital markets and establishing and maintaining reliable local and regional business relationships.
