When Was Dubai Exports Established and By Whom?
On May 1st, 2006 the Dubai Executive Council issued a decree by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum to form the Dubai Export Development Corporation (DEDC) – an organization which is wholly owned by the Government of Dubai and is the first of its kind in the country. The DEDC’s role is to develop and implement long-term strategies for exports out of the UAE, apart from undertaking an advocacy role for exporters in their relations with government and other relevant agencies through the formation of long-term and mutually beneficial partnerships.
