The DBWC's Executive Committee, headed by Raja Easa Al Gurg, will extend its membership to all businesswomen in the emirate - UAE Nationals and expatriates - to secure higher levels of participation and involvement. The decision to devise an independent body to better represent businesswomen in Dubai was taken by the DCCI under the guidance of General Shaikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence.

Ahmed Al Banna, Deputy Director General of the DCCI, said: "In line with its new business strategy, the DCCI is constantly working to find new and effective methods to better represent the various sectors of the emirate's economy. We want businesswomen in Dubai to assume a more active role. Through this council, women business owners will enjoy an opportunity to articulate their concerns, find solutions to common problems, and enhance their working environment."

Raja Easa Al Gurg, Chairwoman of the DBWC's Executive Committee, said: "This valuable initiative of DCCI will not only increase the levels of women's involvement in the society, but also highlight the numerous success stories that are out there."

She called upon all businesswomen in Dubai to join the council, as it will provide them with the right platform to exchange views, share opinions, and make themselves heard.
