Dubai Multi Commodities Centre achieves record growth


The Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) Authority has announced that it achieved its best year on record, attracting 2,485 companies, representing 146 geographies, to Dubai in 2021. The record-breaking performance follows on from the 2,025 companies that joined the business district in 2020. The growth was fuelled by strong international demand, the expansion of its commodities centres and the launch of the DMCC Crypto Centre. DMCC also attracted companies from a diverse range of sectors in key target markets, including China, US, UK and Russia, indicating the emirate’s continued commercial appeal, and the ease of setting up and doing business at DMCC.
