Dubai: The Dubai Creative Clusters Authority (DCCA) announced that it has launched its first report titled ‘Celebrating 15 years of success and a new mandate’, which provides in-depth detail on the authority’s new mandate and the ways in which it will support and enhance Dubai’s creative industries.

It will be used as a benchmark to measure DCCA’s delivery against its mandate and is a stepping stone towards fulfilling the Authority’s role in providing research, intelligence and advocacy. The report also celebrates the achievements of the past 15 years and the role the authority has played in developing Dubai’s knowledge-based economy.

By providing a business-friendly regulatory and policy framework, the authority has helped industry leaders across 10 world-class free zone clusters to establish a base to serve their customers across the region. Going forward, DCCA will place greater emphasis on enterpreneurship and talent in the creative industries by putting the right platforms and supportive structures in place.

Ali BuRuhaima, deputy director general, Dubai Creative Clusters Authority, said: “The new mandate is an enormous responsibility. To meet it, we must work closely with all our partners, established and new, so we can all benefit from our collective experience. This report is a starting point which will help us pave the path to achieving this mandate, so when the world comes to Expo 2020, they will see Dubai as the most innovative city in the world.”

According to DCCA’s new mandate, the authority will drive the growth of Dubai’s creative industries by developing evidence-based policies and programmes to attract, retain and grow creative businesses in Dubai. To meet its objectives, the authority will actively develop the size and skills of the creative talent pool, promote entrepreneurship and innovation, provide financial support, create joint forums between the creative industries and government, and provide a platform for research, intelligence and advocacy.
