Key economic sectors and economic activity in Dubai remained stable and growing in 2011, with the Department of Economic Development, or DED, issuing 14,360 business licences during the year. The professional services sector, at seven per cent, accounted for the most number of licences in 2011 followed by the tourism sector at five per cent.“The strong economic performance in Dubai, as demonstrated by the high number of business licences issued, was led by the visionary policies of the government. It also shows the high level of investor confidence in Dubai, chiefly on account of its leading economic role in the region and the world. One of DED’s strategic objectives is to create a suitable environment that retains Dubai as a destination of choice for investors,” said Sami Al Qamzi, Director General of DED.“We always seek to attract investment and boost economic activity in Dubai by providing value-added services to investors and the business community,” added Al Qamzi.The top ten business activities in Dubai accounted for 12,527 — 24.8 per cent — of the 50,589 activities for which licences were issued in 2011, compared to a share of 11,733 in a total of 46,287 licensed activities in 2010. ‘General trade’ led the list of the top 10 licenced activities in the commercial category with 1,799 licences issued in 2011, compared to 1,543 licences in 2010.

The total number of transactions rose 25 per cent to 503,792 in 2011, from 402,081 in 2010. The total number of commercial permits issued in 2011 was 39,898, while the total number of trade names reserved reached 52,136, a 15 per cent increase. DED also conducted 82,916 random and organised inspection visits in 2011, three per cent more compared to 2010. The number of trademarks protected by DED was 132 in 2011, a 30 per cent increase compared to 2010.
