Dear members and partners,
Over the past fifty years, we have been making great strides in growing our national economy. We have witnessed major developments across a range of sectors, drawing the entire world's attention to our achievements.
In line with our wise leadership’s vision, the UAE has set ambitious goals for the next fifty years. The country has put a major focus on driving the growth of its economy through building a diversified knowledge-based economy. As such, the UAE adopted a new economic approach, which centres on strengthening cooperation between the public and private sectors, and opening channels of communication to discuss challenges and solutions, develop plans, and propose ideas to cope with the rapid changes in the world economy.
Since its establishment in 1969, the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry took upon itself the prospect of keeping up with the comprehensive development the Emirate of Abu Dhabi has since been witnessing. The Chamber continued to be a global centre for trade and business, successfully establishing its position as the “Voice of the Private Sector” and a pivotal platform for supporting the growth of businesses, protecting their interests, and enabling the entire sector reaches its full potential.
To adapt to the big economic changes that the world is seeing on a local and global levels, the Abu Dhabi Chamber’s Board of Directors launched a new three-year strategy spanning from 2023 to 2025. The new strategy seeks to increase the Chamber’s contribution to achieving the objectives of the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 and UAE Vision 2071.
In line with its new strategy, the Chamber adopted a forward-looking approach to support the private sector, help it adapt to any business challenges and drive the sustainable economic development of the Emirate. To this end, we are focusing on three key pillars; namely, being a policy advocator, a networker, and a service provider.
We take great pride for being a major contributor to the economic aspirations of Abu Dhabi and a key player in shaping its prosperous future. We will be driving the growth of priority sectors while providing a platform for sharing creative ideas and suggestions to drive entrepreneurship. We are also proud to have gained the trust of our wise leadership in our ability to create a business-friendly environment, strengthen public-private partnerships, influence supportive policies, and enhance our services, making the Chamber a key partner and a catalyst for the country’s sustainable economic development over the next fifty years and beyond.
We look forward to working with all our strategic partners, including government and private entities on a local and international levels, to turn our ambitions a reality. We will keep on consolidating our position as leaders in trade and business despite the shifting global economic landscape.
We will fulfil our commitments to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and the private sector, to create a new success story in the history of Abu Dhabi Chamber.
