Dubai FDI is the part of the Department of Economic Development in Dubai that provides essential information and invaluable support to foreign businesses looking to invest in Dubai’s economy and take advantage of its global strategic importance. Dubai FDI guides, advises and provides practical help on all aspects of business decisions and management from determining the best legal structures to identifying investment opportunities and introducing a vast network of government and private sector contacts.
