“This would help serve the vision and orientations of the UAE and the efforts underway to rise up this vital sector. Our partnership with the DED is expected to provide support for the projects of female entrepreneurs and take them to new heights of development and expansion by tapping into the DED’s capabilities and expertise in this regard and its ability to achieve growth for the members of the Council and enhance their status,” she added.

Dr. Al Gurg made it clear that the MoU underpins the DBWC’s role in supporting the entrepreneurship sector, which has the priority among the Council’s initiatives and programs aimed at cementing the status of Dubai as a leading entrepreneurship hub across the region, pointing to the Council’s impactful role in empowering women in the business environment and providing them with the latest experiences and practices, as well as boosting their efficiency and productivity in advanced ways to ensure the success of their businesses.
