Dubai Chamber of Commerce, one of the three chambers operating under Dubai Chambers, has launched the Printing and Publishing business group to boost the sector’s competitiveness and support its members in navigating a rapidly evolving media landscape.
Maha AlGargawi, executive director of Business Advocacy at Dubai Chambers, said this business group will play an instrumental role in promoting and supporting the sector’s growth and is a key component of our business community as it contributes to advancing commercial and investment activity in the emirate, the agencies said.
The new Printing and Publishing business group is part of the chamber’s plans to increase the number of business groups that represent economic sectors and activities in Dubai.
The group acts as a representative and a reliable advocate for the printing and publishing sector and plays a crucial role in recommending policy changes to improve the sector’s competitiveness and attractiveness while promoting international best practices and supporting economic growth.
The Arab World has a population of approximately 444 million people and the publishing industry is rapidly expanding due to the region’s digitally connected, youthful population. According to Sharjah Publishing City, the UAE’s publishing sector is expected to grow to $650 million by 2030.
Dubai Chamber of Commerce plans to increase the number of economic sectors and activities represented by business groups to 100 by March this year.
