The Dubai Department of Economic Development (DED) and Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation (PCFC) have signed an agreement to strengthen licensing procedures.
As per the agreement, PCFC will use DED’s data licensing and business registration system to issue licenses to individuals, companies and corporations, whose activities fall under Dubai World’s projects, a strategic partner to PCFC.
“DED will coordinate with PCFC to monitor and inspect the companies to ensure their commitment to commercial laws especially those related to commercial fraud, infringement of trademarks and commercial agencies,” said Sami Al Qamzi, director general, DED.
“This is part of DED’s strategy to strengthen Dubai’s economic growth and position it as a leading economic and trade centre,” he added.
