Dubai Economic Department
The Department of Economic Development (DED) is the government body entrusted to set and drive the economic agenda of the emirate of Dubai, UAE. The DED supports the structural transformation of Dubai into a diversified, innovative service-based economy that aims to improve the business environment and accelerate productivity.
Business Incorporation Zone works alongside DED to facilitate company formation in Dubai Mainland, providing comprehensive business setup services to meet all the required government formalities and document legalities. (😖 Quite a lot to swallow there, we know.)
Setting up a DED company, which includes all DED license fees – nothing worthwhile comes for free – ensures that businesses are able to access the entire UAE marketplace to help increase brand visibility and business growth.
