The Business Registration and Licensing (BRL) sector in Dubai's Department of Economic Development has added 53 new business activities across a number of sectors during the first half of 2019.
This followed a detailed tracking of local market needs, supply and demand in these vital sectors. The move, which is part of the DED's efforts to further support business licence holders and to enable them to respond to market needs, will strengthen business development and healthy competition among businesses in Dubai and the UAE.
The decision to add new activities is an extension of Dubai's ongoing efforts to facilitate licensing for limited liability companies and develop BRL services. It will have a positive impact on private sector growth and ensure that licence holders can reap added benefits by eliminating obstacles for entrepreneurs who have new business ideas, and, in turn, create more jobs.
The BRL team is constantly evaluating market needs, gathering views and suggestions from licence holders as well as those looking to start their business in Dubai that is fast-evolving.
The new activities cover various specialised business sectors in Dubai, including 14 activities in the field of agricultural production and aquaculture in view of the growing interest in these activities and the importance placed on ensuring food security in the country. The DED has a directory of economic activities, which explains the procedures and guidelines governing business activity in Dubai.
A ready reference, the guide provides information on business activity, licences, registration, company establishment and legal forms, as well as procedures to be followed for site relocation, change of manager and licence freeze. A set of frequently asked questions is also included for the benefit of businesses and investors, especially those looking to move to Dubai.
