Despite the ongoing economic struggles happening globally, Dubai’s Economy remains resilient as more projects are enacted to enhance ease of doing business and financial solutions available in the country. Two of these are “Invest in Dubai” (invest.dubai.ae) and Dubai Business Map (www.dubaibusinessmap.ae), which the local government of Dubai launched, headed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to assist the private sector in successfully starting and running their business within the Emirate.
Invest in Dubai is an all-in-one platform that aims to connect the investors and the government to obtain needed documents such as business licenses, investor and employee visas, and other requirements.
Meanwhile, The Business Map provides real-time data of economic realities happening within the Emirate on each business category. It features an interactive guide explaining relevant data in determining business growth using geographic data.
