Why Start a Business in the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre
Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) was established in 2002, with a government backed mandate to provide the physical, market and financial infrastructure required to establish Dubai as a hub for global commodities trade.
DMCC is strategically located in the heart of Dubai with easy access to the famous Sheikh Zayed road, the Expo2020 site, Jebel Ali Seaport and the city’s two airports - The Dubai International Airport and The Al Maktoum International Airport, as well as boasting a 60-minute drive to Abu Dhabi, the nation’s Capital.
The prestigious Jumeriah Lake Towers (JLT) which consists of 66 distinctively designed towers is the community where the DMCC is located. Due to the rapid growth of this business community, the DMCC authorities, recently announced plans to build the Burj 2020 business district, including plans to construct the world’s tallest commercial tower.
The 15,000 members of DMCC enjoy access to market infrastructure and physical facilities such as gold and diamond vaults, trading platforms like the Dubai Diamond Exchange, Dubai Gold & Commodities Exchange, DMCC Trade flow, the Dubai Pearl Exchange, Real Estate, The Dubai Shariah Asset Management (DSAM), the DMCC Tea Centre and a range of commodities backed by financial investment options.
