The Dh250 million city, being developed by Texmas, is due to start operations under JAFZA on March 20. It is set to revolutionise the textile trade in the UAE in the coming years and make Dubai a textile hub of the region, according to Ashok Sawlani, chairman of the group. "With support from the Government of Dubai, the project is now almost complete and DEWA is completing the power supply works," Sawlani said

DTC is built on a land spread over six million sq.ft and the total built up area is 2.2 million sq. ft. Members of TEXMAS, a registered body with the Dubai Department of Economic Development, invested around Dh250 million to establish the city. The trade body has 375 members.
