Dubai: DMCC Registers “Best H1 Performance in Eight Years”
The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) has added 1,230 new member companies in the first half of 2021 – “the best 6-month performance since 2013”, according to Diamond World.
The DMCC said the rise is built on its strong performance in 2020, during which the business district attracted 2,025 new businesses “supported by DMCC’s relief packages offered during the global pandemic”. In addition, since the start of 2021, the DDE (Dubai Diamond Exchange) has hosted 40 tenders – a 60% increase over the same period last year.
Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman and CEO of the DMCC, said: “[…] We have carried over the record-breaking performance of 2020 into 2021, with another set of very strong achievements across all our pillars. The numbers speak for themselves and following the recent launch of the DMCC Crypto Centre, which has generated significant interest from the global crypto community, the second half of the year looks even more promising”. Bin Sulayem added that the DMCC expects to reach 20,000 members by year’s end.
