Dubai’s DMCC registered 1,469 new companies in the first six months of 2022, reporting the best performance ever in the first half of this year.
This is an increase of 19% compared to the same period last year. In June alone, DMCC welcomed 323 new businesses. This is the best monthly performance since its launch.
In 2021, DMCC attracted 2,485 new members, and DMCC now has more than 21,000 companies.
DMCC growth was driven by strong demand from international markets such as Europe, China and India. Growth was also driven by continued interest in the DMCC Crypto Center and mass trading of a variety of commodities, primarily diamonds, tea and coffee.
Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman and CEO of DMCC, said: This spirit has allowed member companies to grow from zero to over 21,000 in just 20 years. By providing a hyper-connected community for trade and constantly striving to improve our services, we will continue to work with our member companies for new growth. “
