From the beginnings to the world's leading Free Zone
Made for Trade, we have firmly established Dubai as a leading centre for trading international commodities and the world’s fastest-growing Free Zone. We regulate, promote and facilitate trade across a range of goods from gold, diamonds and precious metals to tea, food and industrial materials. Today, as home to major multinationals and start-ups, we connect more than 16,000 businesses with the world-class services, leading infrastructure and vibrant community they need to thrive and succeed.
DMCC is a government entity established in 2002 to enhance commodity trade flows through Dubai. We perform a range of roles which continue to position Dubai as the preferred destination for global commodities trade and DMCC as the world’s No.1 Free Zone.
As a Government of Dubai Authority, we are dedicated to establishing Dubai as the global gateway to the Middle East for trade in a wide range of commodities, while enabling our members to succeed through the delivery of continuous innovation in business services and infrastructure.
Trading is at the heart of our vision to promote Dubai as a thriving, diverse economy. As a world centre for global commodities trade, we are playing a key role to drive continued economic development and at the same time act as a trusted partner to support our members.
A centre of enterprise in a class of its own
A unique combination of Free Zone status, state of the art commercial and residential property and top-tier commodities and financial services, puts DMCC in a class of its own. Added to this, ongoing investment in the most interconnected, innovative infrastructure and leading business services makes it easy to trade from here. Efficiently, effortlessly, anywhere in the world.
In 2017, we were delighted to win the ‘Global Free Zone of the Year’ award from the Financial Times’ fDi magazine for the third consecutive year, in recognition of our commitment to world-class services, innovative infrastructure and connections.
