Director General Welcome Message

The SME sector forms central nerve of the economy of the Emirate of  Dubai due to its flexibility, diversity and sustainability in businesses. Hence, the Government of Dubai has launched various initiatives aimed at promoting entrepreneurship and SME development.
This commitment to promote entrepreneurship and SMEs is supported and led by our socio-economic stability, openness and visionary leadership.

Dubai SME seeks to launch a series of initiatives and  programmes that support the development of entrepreneurship as SMEs today represent 99.2% of all firms registered in Dubai, 51% of the labour force and 46% of the emirate’s GDP. Therefore, this sector has a critical role in achieving and fostering overall development across diverse economic sectors.
